Most Boomers already know why they love these particular flicks, so I'll get right to the important stuff: The Giant Claw, The Werewolf and Zombies of Mora Tau are all in the Anamorphic widescreen format (Creature with the Atom Brain is fullscreen). All the prints are sharp with crisp soundtracks. This is really a long way from all the poor bootlegs and cable copies that many Boomers were forced to live with for so many decades.

Although these films are important to many who grew up with them, either seeing them during their first runs in the movies or later on Chiller Theater, some newer viewers may not see them in the same light (many younger people won't bother watching them for the simple fact that they're not in color). But then again, these newer viewers will never know of that magical time when these flicks were lighting up the huge screens in Movie Palaces and Drive-In theaters throughout the country.

It will be the true enthusiasts of this genre who will see this set as a home run, especially at these prices. Kill the lights, then hold tightly onto your honey and enjoy!

I'm still in the second childhood phase and looking for all the old movies I watched as a child. This collection features some of the movies that I watched on those long ago Saturdays. While not great they are very fun and in some cases very funny.
1.The Giant Claw= The last word on monster fx's. You can see the strings and the "bird" looks laughable, but the movie is still great fun if you let it be.
2.The Werewolf= An "atomic" twist on the old werewolf legend and really pretty good
3.Zombies Of Mora Tua= Silly and very funny.
4.The Creature With The Atom Brain= Brain dead fun
Not for all taste but some fun for anyone who loves these old cheesy movies like I do.

My dad took me to the movies back in the 1950's when "The Werewolf" and"Creature with the Atom Brain " were in their first run theatrical release. After seeing "Creature" this 8yr old boy was afraid to go to bed.
It haunted me for a long, long time. When I saw it again as an adult those childhood chills came right back. Glad these classics are getting a top notch release replacing the terrible copies made from poor prints.

I am thrilled to have all these films on DVD at last, but the main reason I bought it was for THE WEREWOLF. Opinions on the other films may differ (I personally think ZOMBIES OF MORA TAU is vastly underrated and is a great early entry in the zombie genre--it may seem silly now but it sure didn't then!), but few would deny that THE WEREWOLF is a terrific film. I saw it when it first came out, double-billed with EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS. I was 10 at the time, and had already seen all sorts of horror films, but none of them scared me. My parents weren't sure I should see this film, but I insisted. They were right--this movie scared the hell out of me, as no film had before or has since. I had nightmares for weeks.

I watched the film many times during the next 10 years, first at matinees, then on the late show (it used to be a staple of late-night horror broadcasts). Then the film virtually disappeared, until recently when TCM showed it now and then. Although the movie doesn't have quite the same impact on me today as it did when I was 10, I still think it's damn scary. And now FINALLY it's available on DVD.

Although the transformation scenes and the werewolf's appearance are frightening enough, the great things about this film are the acting (Steven Ritch in the title role gives a wonderful performance), the plot and script, and the location photography. Also, it's one of the first films to combine horror with sci-fi. And it's played straight--there's none of the silliness and self-parody that mars more recent entries in the werewolf genre.

I urge everyone who loves werewolf movies to check this one out. And remember--in its day, this was one terrifying film!

So, just who the heck is Sam Katzman, anyway? Most boomers will remember these flicks from late-night "Creature Features" or Saturday afternoons with Sir Graves Ghastly, but never associated them together, much less with a specific producer. But Katzman was an old hand by the time these were made. He was the man who got Johnny Weismuller out of the leopard skin and into the safari gear as "Jungle Jim". He's generally credited for coining the term "beatnik". He did the "East Side Kids" movies, including two with Bela Lugosi. He was also the producer for two early Ray Harryhausen flicks, "It Came From Beneath the Sea" (with the lovable six-armed octopus) and "Earth vs the Flying Saucers". He even did a couple of Elvis pics: "Harum Scarum" and "Kissin' Cousins".

These four are from 1955-1957. "Creature with the Atom Brain" (1955) has an ex-Nazi (wow, were these guys into *every*thing!) creating atomic-powered zombies, complete with glowing serum in their veins. These middle-aged creeps stalk their victims to help a typical crime lord take over the city. They're hard to spot, except for the flip-top skulls. Story by Curt Siodmak, who sure came a long way downhill from his brilliant "I Walked with a Zombie".

The following year (and 10 movies later!), "The Werewolf" jumps out. No full moon needed here - he's a radioactive werewolf! (See a trend?) Poor guy gets in an auto wreck and some helpful docs fix him up with an experimental serum. You can guess the rest.....

"Zombies of Mora Tau" is certainly original - these zombies are amphibious! They're the remains of a ship's crew, guarding a treasure of diamonds in the underwater wreck.
