WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Scared Silly” is a collection of 13 horror comedies that belong to the public domain. There’s a later flick in there with John Saxon that surprised by its inclusion, but anything is possible. If you’re a horror fan that doesn’t have “The Little Shop of Horrors” or “Manos: The Hands of Fate” on DVD, then this is your chance. Plus, you won’t have to deal with the MST3K extras.

The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp for standard definition. That being said, the transfers still don’t get much to do. The Dolby track keeps all channels pumping. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
