I own it...havnt watched them all yet, but on all the ones Ive watched, the transfer isnt that bad. Some are rally good, other arent bad. Ive seen alot worse transfers from cheap, public domain movies...

I dunno if any of you have heard of the band Nekromantix, but the cover of their newest CD is a take on that screen shot...it's pretty badass...

I own it as well and I think overall they are of pretty decent quality. But I haven't watched all of them yet either.

12 in all I believe; about 4 movies per disc.

Can't believe I forgot The Invisible Man.....that's a good one. Also there was a Tod Browning film called The Unknown with Lon Chaney (1927) and I believe Freaks was actually a remake of that one. It also shows up on TCM from time to time and is definitely worth a look.
I really wish London After Midnight hadn't been lost. The make-up looks great on that one. I saw the TCM restoration (they put together stills of the film and aired it a couple of year's ago) and it was interesting.
