I love Mill Creek’s box collections! You get so much entertainment for your money. I own several myself. Where are you going to get 12 films for under ten bucks. So if your a dead-head I do I highly recommend you head on over to www.Millcreekent.com or your local DVD store and pick up a copy of "Zombie Un-Brained" from Mill Creek Entertainment.
