Description by OLDIES.com:

Voodoo Island (1957, 78 minutes): Master of the macabre Boris Karloff delivers a rare non-monster performance as the leader of an investigation of mysterious disappearances on a South Pacific island that is the proposed site of an exclusive resort. But after a few encounters with carnivorous plants and zombies, he realizes that this might not be the ideal place for a vacation...and that his team will be lucky to make it off the island alive!

The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (1959, 70 minutes): The sins of the fathers rest heavily on the heads of the sons - literally - in this fun-filled frightfest that'll keep you "awake and screaming through many a traumatic night" (Variety)! Faced with an age-old family curse that beheaded their forefathers, two brothers attempt to unravel the family plot...even as sinister forces attempt to put them into it!

Product Description:

VOODOO ISLAND: A 1950s B-movie whose charm stems from the absurdity of its plotline and über-campy dialogue, this pseudo-shocker mixes elements of science fiction and horror, with a cast helmed by frightmeister Boris Karloff (FRANKENSTEIN). Phillip Knight is a well-known adventurer who investigates hoaxes and myths for a living. He is hired by Barney Finch (Murvyn Vye, A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT), a wealthy hotel magnate, to investigate tales of a voodoo curse on an island he wants to buy. Once there, however, Knight finds out that this is one supposed hoax that is actually true! Man-eating plants, a voodoo tribe, and zombies will all make an appearance before the hilariously anticlimactic dénouement. Elisha Cook Jr., Rhodes Reason, and Beverly Tyler also co-star.

FOUR SKULLS OF JONATHAN DRAKE: Featuring some pretty grisly fare for its time, this low-budget shocker is an original piece of work that doesn't fail to entertain, despite its limited resources. Jonathan Drake (Eduard Franz) returns home to attend the funeral of his brother Kenneth (Paul Cavanagh). But at the service he is dismayed to discover that his brother's head has been stolen! Jonathan quickly realizes that the curse that killed his grandfather and father is still at work--and he himself is most likely the next victim. Lt. Jeff Rowan (Grant Richards) does some sleuthing, aided by Drake's attractive daughter (Valerie French), while an imposing Indian with sewn-shut lips menaces poor Jonathan at night.
