For the first time together in a single collection comes three heart-warming and adventurous family classics. The Complete Shiloh Film Collection includes the films SHILOH, SHILOH 2: SHILOH SEASON and SHILOH 3: SAVING SHILOH.

SHILOH: A boy learns about responsibility, commitment and friendship while trying to rescue a beagle pup from mistreatment by its owner. Michael Moriarty, Rod Steiger, Scott Wilson and young Blake Heron, star in a wonderful all-family treat.

SHILOH 2: Together Marty and SHILOH, through the course of startling events and playful adventures, prove a person filled with hate can be healed by the power of love. Starring Rod Steiger, Michael Moriarty and newcomer Zachary Brown.

SHILOH 3: A young Midwestern boy and his dog SHILOH deal with their family's issues, while befriending a cantankerous old man with a bad reputation, trying to find the good in him. Based on Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's book by the same name and continuing the SHILOH saga, SAVING SHILOH, draws the story of Marty, SHILOH, and Judd to a conclusion that brings the story full circle.

Editor's Note
SHILOH: The bond between a young boy and an amicable blond beagle is tested when the dog is abused and must be rescued from its owner. Based on the Newberry Award-winning children's story by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, this feature also won the prestigious 1997 Genesis Award for Outstanding Feature for spotlighting animal issues with "courage, creativity and integrity."

SHILOH 2: SHILOH SEASON: Marty takes in Shiloh, who's been abused by his owner, Judd Travers. Even after Shiloh saves Judd's life, he continues to treat the dog cruelly, threatening to take him away from Marty. A compassionate tale with a strong moral: kindness overpowers hatred. Based on the novel by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.

SAVING SHILOH: When a 12-year-old boy from a loving Midwestern family befriends an old man rumored to have a sordid past, he is forced to reevaluate his own understanding of love, acceptance, and truth. Directed by Sandy Tung, SAVING SHILOH is the last part in the trilogy based on the popular novel.

Professional Reviews

ReelViews 8 of 10
[1] The strength of Shiloh is that it approaches its subject matter intelligently...Shiloh, which is adapted from a Newberry Award winning book, fits nicely into the class of better animal-related family films, joining the ranks of Lassie and Black Beauty...Shiloh represents something that's all too rare at theaters these days: a pleasant surprise. - James Berardinelli

eFilmCritic.com 7 of 10
[3] The 1998 sequel "Shiloh Season," which you may not recall quite as well as the first, featured the same kid, dog, neighbor and lessons about kindness and decency. Seeing as how each of those films ended with the grump supposedly reformed, only to revert to his earlier crankiness in time for the next one, I questioned the need to see him learn yet another valuable lesson..."Saving Shiloh" does have its positive aspectsÐa nice message about tolerance and forgiveness and Wilson's striking workÐbut I can't help but wish that those qualities might have had more of an impact in a film that was more worthy of them. This one just doesn't quite come off because it is just too familiar for its own good, not to mention a little too goody-goody even for a kid-oriented movie. - Peter Sobczynski

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
[2] "Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season'' recycles the same characters and in a way the same problems as the wonderful original film, but carries the message a little further. The first film was about a boy who is adopted by a dog, loves it and wants to protect it from its cruel owner--even if that means lying to his parents. This sequel is about how people get to be cruel in the first place, and what you might be able to do to help them...Scott Wilson once again brings a humanity to the tricky role of Judd Travers, who is a pathetic being. Yes, he kicks dogs. But he was kicked himself, as a child, and is a lonely man, living in poverty. - Roger Ebert
