Sam Katzman is somewhat of a rebel director. He got himself in trouble when he recruited writers that were on hollywood black list. His movies are well-produced and, a rare fact in B-movies from the 50s, well-acted.
These movie are long on story-telling and low on horrific effects. The producer is walking you through each scenario like someone telling a Campfire story. Zombies, Werewolves, monsters created by mad scientists, it is all there. Little to no gore at all is seen, like if you were watching Horror Film noir or typical saturday matinee shows. In this multi-disk package, the only weak movie is GIANT CLAW... A Godzilla-type of film, in which the only thing missing is Ultraman coming to the rescue !!!! All the others are very entertaining, but standard.
This Boxset is a must-own for B-movies or horror film lovers. It is the answer to the perennial question : "Are there horror films that I can watch with my girlfriend ?".... Recommended.
