About this item

"Icons Of Horror Collection - Sam Katzman" includes: "The Giant Claw" (1957): The movie that's literally a turkey! In an act of cosmic irony, an enormous bird from outer space descends upon the Earth and begins chowing down on people. As usual, scientists and the military must team up to save our planet. This hysterically feathered fable stars sci-fi icons Jeff Morrow ("This Island Earth"), Mara Corday ("Tarantula!"), Morris Ankrum ("Invaders From Mars") and Robert Shayne (TV's "The Adventures Of Superman"), and is directed by Fred F. Sears ("Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers"). "Creature With The Atom Brain" (1955): From the pen of the legendary Curt Siodmak ("The Wolf Man," "Donovan's Brain") and director Edward L. Cahn ("It! The Terror From Beyond Space") comes this smash-bang thriller starring Richard Denning ("Creature From The Black La-goon") as a police doctor hot on the trail of a mob boss who's hired an ex-Nazi scientist to re-animate his dead thugs to do more dirty work! If it seems like a condensed serial, it shouldn't be a surprise: the cast is packed with such chapterplay vets as Gregory Gaye, Tristam Coffin, Harry Lauter, Pierre Watkin, Lane Chandler, Don Harvey and Charles Horvath. "Zombies Of Mora Tau" (1957): Director Edward L. Cahn teams with another great writer, Bernard Gordon (using his blacklist nom de plume Raymond T. Marcus) for this delightfully loopy adventure about a sunken ship whose cargo of diamonds is guarded by its zombified crew members. And wouldn't ya know it, there's a bunch of foolhardy scavengers who aren't scared of The Swimming Dead. "The 50' Woman" herself, Allison Hayes, stars along with Gregg Palmer ("From Hell It Came"), Morris Ankrum ("Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers"), Gene Roth ("Attack Of The Giant Leeches") and B-western star Ray "Crash" Corrigan. "The Werewolf" (1956): Updating a horror staple to the Atomic Age, this moody chiller stars Steven Ritch ("Murder By Contract") as an auto-accident survivor who's used by two scientists as a subject for their experiments to create a vaccine for nuclear fall-out. Unfortunately, it has a rather hairy side effect. Another solid effort from director Fred F. Sears, with Don Megowan ("The Creature Walks Among Us"), Joyce Holden ("Terror From The Year 5000") and Harry Lauter ("It Came From Beneath The Sea"), as well as some beautiful locations at Big Bear Lake.

I bought this DVD for The Werewolf movie, which I saw when it was new in the theaters. The DVD did not dissappoint me! What a great movie, and a good transfer to DVD. I had seen the other movies before on tv, and the better of the other three is the Creature With the Atomic Brain (good story and acting). As for the other two, Zombies of Mora Tau is fun, but no where close to the laughable Giant Claw (good thing the actors did not see the "special effects" while they were filming - they would have thought it was a gag reel!). A great DVD to have if you love Sci Fi from the fifties!

I hadn't seen "The Giant Claw" and "The Werewolf" for many years. Loved seeing them again. If you're a fan of the "old" monster movies, this one is right for you. Four movies at a pretty good price.....comes out to about $5 a movie. Bird in "The Giant Claw" leaves "a lot" to be desired, but still good storyline and better-than-average actors. "The Werewolf" --might-- leave you with nightmares. Great scene, and most scary to me, is where the two doctors enter the cell. Hang on to somebody when they roll "the victim" over.

before there was special effects and color and high def - there was black and white...acting carried the plot...the four "horror" classics in this set are funny by today's standards - but a real connoiseur will find them remarkable...comes with some extras..great value, good picture and sound
