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 informative extras. 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

     —Cinemasscre

Arrow Video went above and beyond and loaded this Blu-ray set with tons of bonus features. It's filled with hours of sci-fi fun that even kids of this generation will have fun watching.

     —Classic Cinema Magazine

Zombies! Werewolves! Atomic Mutation! Intergalactic Avians! Let this quartet of classic terrors take you back to the golden age of B-Movie Monsters!

     —Industrial Blue

Beautiful artwork. Some fun stuff is this!

     —Danny Filaccio, Cinestalker

a ton of extra features

     —Film Cultist

All in all, it’s another great set. Fans of b-movie history—who are likely a significant portion of the audience interested in a box set dedicated to the work of a single producer—are going to be quite pleased with the bonus materials that were commissioned by Arrow for this release.

     —Austin Trunick, Under The Radar Mag
