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
