Zombies! Werewolves! Atomic Mutation! Intergalactic Avians! Let this quartet of classic terrors take you back to the golden age of B-Movie Monsters! A mob boss hires an ex-Nazi scientist to reanimate his dead thugs in Creature with the Atom Brain. An auto-accident survivor is used as an experimental subject to create a vaccine for nuclear fallout with hair-raising side-effects in The Werewolf. Treasure hunters get more than they bargained for in the search for a cargo of diamonds that went down with a sunken ship when they discover the zombified crew members are guarding the loot in Zombies of Mora Tau. Meanwhile, an enormous bird from outer-space descends to chow down on the people of planet Earth in The Giant Claw! Four fantastic feature presentations from prolific producer Sam Katzman with a bounty of brand new extras and a raft of new writing by a range of respected raconteurs. These Cold War Creatures are coming for you!

Press Quotes

Creature with the Atom Brain is so very 1950s -- right down Richard Denning as the pipe-smoking egghead scientist who puts together the solution -- that it's a delight.

     —Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress

Enjoyable hokum by the King of Schlock

     —Dennis Schwartz, Cinafilm

The BEST 'worst' movies ever made

     —Cinemassacre

The movies are perfect for the whole family to watch. Arrow Video has done their typical amazing job on this release from the extensive extras and packaging to the high end quality of the transfers of these films. They’ve never looked better.

     —DVD Corner

B-movie king Sam Katzman capitalized on our fears by producing some classically campy horror pictures. A terrific new limited edition, four-disc collector's set from Arrow Video gives us four flicks, all revived in startlingly clear 1080p High Definition Blu-ray format.
