In this context: “new” means not in a previous Mill Creek collection.
1) 1 month old: Seen in the $5.50 (or 2 for $11) bin at Wal Mart
.a. 20 John Wayne Movies (half from 100 Westerns, half “new”)
.b. 20 Roy Rogers Movies (all from 100 Westerns)
.c. 20 Mean Guns (all from 100 Westerns)
.d. 10 Westerns (all from 100 Westerns)

2) 3 weeks old: Seen for $5 at Big Lots
.a. 20 Burnt Rubber – a lot of non collected stuff including a serial: “Burn ‘em Up Barnes”

3) 1-2 weeks old: Announced new packs
.a. 50 Comedy Kings
.b. 50 Western Legends
..i. Has John Wayne movies previously only in the 20 pack
..ii. Has some “new” Roy Rogers Movies
..iii. Several not in any of their packs.
.c. 10 Ninja Assassins (from 50 Martial Arts)
.d. 10 On the Run (all appear in other collections)

4) Today: Non-announced – I just happened to look and there they were
.a. Three slasher sounding 6 packs: Hardcore Horrors, Morbid Mutilations and Sadistic Sinners. Half the movies are “new”. What’s interesting is that half also claim to appear in…
.b. 50 Decrepit Crypt of Nightmares (sounds like a joke title, doesn’t it?)
..i. I can’t find a listing for that one. However, in looking for it I found…
.c. 50 Night Screams (I want this one!)
..i. Has all of the not-previously-collected movies in 100 Horror
..ii. Has NONE of the previously mentioned slasher flicks
..iii. Also has a lot of “new” stuff on the border of Mystery and Horror

Those new six packs are part of the Mill Creek sub-label "Pendulum Pictures." These are all zero-budget, home made, shot-on-video horror quickies shot in people's basements for $100. These all date from the last 10 years or so. Some people like that kind of stuff, though, so far be it for me to criticize.

It does mention they also appear on the "Decrepit Crypt of Nightmares" box set, which is not listed. Maybe it's coming out soon. I'll have to keep an eye out for that one.

Also new a box set with 150 (!) Detective TV episodes. Sounds like a good bet if you don't want to bother buying the individual volumes with 4 episodes each from Alpha Video.

Detective TV

Unfortunately, they don't tell what episodes are included in the TV Detective collection.
Sometimes it seems like the same handful of episodes show up again and again.

On a related subject. I've volume 4 of Detectives and volumes 3 and 4 of Westerns from the Genius pasteboard line. I still see these in stores. Has anyone seen earlier volumes?

Decrepit Crypt...

Aha! It's in the "Pendulum Pictures" section. I was looking in the 50 megapack section.

Here's links to the lineups of the two new 50-packs:
NIGHT SCREAMS (you'd think that with that cover art they'd have some giallo, but the closest thing I see is THE EMBALMER)

A lot of the titles on their NIGHT SCREAMS set seem to be ripped off from Alpha...considering how craptacular the quality was on their last set that was ripped off from Alpha (TALES OF TERROR), I don't have very high hopes for this one.
