Editorial Reviews

Head for the hills as the fur starts flying in these seven big BIGFOOT classics, including the awesomely grotesque SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED; sci-fi’s first film Yeti, 1954’s THE SNOW CREATURE; and 1997’s SEARCH FOR THE BEAST, starring Rick Montana (Active Stealth), David F. Friedman (Blood Feast) and Kimberly Cole. Then it’s the monster bigger than Godzilla and badder than Gamera in MAJIN, MONSTER OF TERROR and RETURN OF THE GIANT MANJIN, two high-quality epics about a giant stone idol that comes to life to defeat evil warlords who terrorize innocent villagers. Combining samurai swordplay with fantastic special effects, this double-feature is a must-see for fans of ’60s Japanese cinema. More monster madness ensues in two obscure delights from ambitious Texas low-budget monster-master Larry Buchanan: ZONTAR: THING FROM VENUS and THE EYE CREATURES. Detailing the ravages of an alien invasion of Earth (with varying degrees of success), these films are the crème de la crème of sci-fi insanity!

For fans of Classic Japanese Giant Monster movies this collection has 2 excellent yet very hard to find classics, "Majin: Monster Of Terror" and "Return Of Giant Majin" (both in English language dubs). The rest of the movies (mostly Bigfoot movies) are better suited as episodes of MST3K.

But I can't stress enough how good the Majin movies on this set are.

I like a good trashy movie, and when you want that sort of movie, you can't go wrong with one that features Bigfoot. The Beast Collection features seven such movies (when you include yetis in the mix) along with a few other cheapo monster flicks.

"Bigfoot Terror" has four wonderfully awful movies. The Capture of Bigfoot takes place in a snowy wilderness where a greedy, scene-chewing maniac plans on capturing the creature to make tons of money. Shriek of the Mutilated has four college students accompanying their professor to a remote island to hunt down a yeti. The twist can be seen a mile away by most viewers (hint: always be suspicious of "special" meat dishes that don't appear on the restaurant menu). Search for the Beast is more than low-budget; it's a practically zero-budget film with little in the way of plot, poor editing and a monster that's laughably fake. The Legend of Bigfoot is a "documentary" about a search for Bigfoot. The few minutes of "incontrovertible" Bigfoot footage is padded with a lot of semi-interesting nature footage.

"Sasquatch Horror" has three more movies in this genre. Sasquatch, the Legend of Bigfoot, is kind of an early version of The Blair Witch Project, with the characters trying to find proof of the creature. Snow Beast is a made-for-TV movie with obviously the best budget of any of these films. Not only are there some familiar (albeit third-string) actors like Yvette Mimieux and Clint Walker, but also a screenplay by Joseph Stefano of Psycho fame. It makes little difference; it's still pretty awful, an obvious rip-off of Jaws that doesn't even give you a good look at the monster.

This has a good selection of monster films.Especially the Giant Maijin films that are impossible 2 find.If they only made a collection of Time Traveler Movies and included the 1964 TIME TRAVELERS it would be better than these.
