Lurking in the quiet village of Dunwich, a supernatural horror lies in wait. When a cute college coed (Sandra Dee) and her professor (Ed Begley) visit the library at the infamous Miskatonic University, they discover a young man (Dean Stockwell) who wishes to check out the dreaded Necronomicon. An ancient book for divining demons, the Necronomicon allows its user to bring hell to Earth, and human sacrifice is the required offering. Pretty young Sandra Dee is the creature's prey...

This is an above standard anamorphic transfer. Sharp, a little faded, but seeing as you get two films (Die, Monster Die on the opposite side) Horror genre fans can't really go wrong for under $10.00. On the back of the box they advertise "Sandra Dee's nude scenes were..." but I don't I recall seeing her in any stage of nudity - but she does look good if only the ultra soft lens weren't on her 90% of the time. As part of the MGM Midnite Movies series you can buy online in Canada and eventually the UK, but only in "Best Buy stores" in the US as part of the agreement that they have. If you are into these films then you should consider yourself fortunate - these are decent DVDs worth there value.
