The brilliant physicist Dr Thorkel (Albert Dekkar) summons four explorers to Peru. They discover a rich source of radium and a half-mad Thorkel who shrinks them down to one-fifth their normal size when they threaten to stop his unorthodox experimentation.
Cult of the Cobra (1955)
While stationed in Asia, six American GIs witness the secret ritual of Lamians (worshipers of women who can change into serpents).

Once back in the United States, a mysterious woman enters into their lives and accidents begin to happen. The shadow of a cobra is seen just before each death.
The Land Unknown (1957)
On a naval expedition to Antarctica, three men and reporter Maggie Hathaway (Shirley Patterson) crash-land in a crater 1000-m below sea level. There, they encounter steamy tropical forest, dinosaurs, carnivorous plants, and human footprints, as Maggie's clothes become more and more abbreviated.
The Deadly Mantis (1957)
The calving of an Arctic iceberg releases a giant praying mantis, trapped in suspended animation since prehistoric times. It first attacks military outposts to eat their occupants, then makes its way to the warmer latitudes of Washington and New York. A paleontologist (William Hopper) works together with military units to try to kill it.
The Leech Woman (1960)
A faded beauty (Coleen Gray) leaves a trail of murder from Africa to the United States when she discovers a compound that will restore her lost youth--when consumed with fluid from the pineal gland of the newly dead! I've been waiting for this Saturday Afternoon Matinee favorite for years! Seeing this on the Saturday afternoon's "Shock! Theater" which aired a different classic Sci-Fi/Horror movie each weekend, I never forgot the cool scene where the old woman is transformed from a decrepit hag to a ravishing beauty!
