    DEAD OF NIGHT / THE QUEEN OF SPADES (reviewed by Bill Gibron): This review is utterly misguided. "Dead of Night" is a classic horror movie and
    the only substantial let-down about is is the comedic episode. "The Queen of
    Spades" is equally interesting, a real gem though not quite the same genre as
    the other film. Actually it may be the highlight of the set because of it's
    relative obscurity. Check out the user reviews at Amazon or dvdtalk.com's review
    for some more informed opinions about this set.

    Bill Gibron is one of the most informed reviewers you are likely to find
    Of course not, and perhaps he is otherwise doing good reviews. But from reading
    this review, one might get the impression that both of these films are clunkers.
    It's a bit like saying that "The Haunting" and "The Innocents" are inferior
    ghost stories and dreadful examples of the horror genre. It's no wonder that
    "Queen of Spades" was once nominated for a British Academy Award for Best Film
    even though the reviewer finds it incomprehensible. Hopefully anyone unfamiliar
    with the movies will also read other reviews before deciding if the set is worth
    getting or not.
