Ultimate DVD - 04/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "Renowned in his time as a skilled creator of suspense and mood, Brahm's work is punctuated by scenes that are shot in a beautiful yet simple cinematic style."

Product Description:

Several little-known vintage horror films are gathered here, including 1942's THE UNDYING MONSTER and 1944's THE LODGER, followed by 1945's HANGOVER SQUARE.

In the first film, a Scotland Yard inspector must figure out who or what has been preying on members of a rich English social circle. Next, a London family takes in a boarder who may or may not be Jack the Ripper himself! Finally, a composer finds work so stressful that he keeps waking up to realize he's blacked out and has gone on a murdering spree.

Rating 4.5 Laird Cregar Steals the Show Movie Lover: from Ayer, MA US -- September, 28, 2009

This boxed set is a must have addition to your film library. Undying Monster is almost good. The Lodger is one of the better versions of the often filmed Jack the Ripper yarn. But, Cregar hits a home run with Hangover Square. This is Cregar's last film as he died at age 28 just before the release of Hangover Square, but he is magnificent as the obsessed composer and concert pianist. Outstanding photography and lighting by Joseph LaShelle and a great musical score by Bernard Herrmann. A very young and gorgeous Linda Darnell provides the sparks to capture the attention of Cregar. Very entertaining and it holds up with subsequent viewings.
