The movies include: Candyman, Child's Play, The Dentist, Friday The 13th, The Guardian, Halloween, Hellraiser, Leprechaun, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Phantasm, Puppetmaster, Scream, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Ugly, and Wishmaster. There's little or no critical assessment of the movies or their characters apart from an inferred 'lookit da jugs on that!' on the various scream divas being sliced, diced and flayed for your edification. This is essentially a digitised version of Fangoria, and on that level it works pretty well, I guess.
I can't make up my mind as to whether this is a cynical marketing exercise to sell these movies (yet again) to the horror audience, most of whom will surely have the full movies on video, or something more serious. I suspect the former. Buyers beware.
The DVD extras include character biographies and histories, animated trivia notes that pop up with each clip, an idiosyncratic audio commentary by Robert Englund which adds some extra trivia to the mix (plus the fact that most of the people involved in these movies are all in his address book!), a Name That Frame game plus a load of DVD-ROM material that I can't access.
