5.0 out of 5 stars "buy one, get four FREE!" June 6 2016

A fun set. Not much familiar with these titles, but had wanted "Shrinking Man", as it is considered a classic. Entire set was only slightly more than that one title, so . . . (set currently $13, retails for $30).
Quality prints, zero extras ('cept trailers), 5 films on 3 single-sided dvds, each on own tray. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME `50'S SCI-FI CAMP CLASSICS!! Sept. 24 2007

Tarantula (1955)
Professor Gerald Deemer (Leo G. Carroll) has been working on a special nutrient to help ease a predicted food shortage that is expected to come with the increase in human population. His experiments have been moderately successful but there have been some failures as a result. One day while he is gone, two of his colleagues inject themselves with the nutrient with disastrous results and die a few days later. One however goes mad and injects Deemer with the formula! During a struggle, a giant tarantula injected with the formula escapes its cage and grows even larger and starts to attack cattle as well as human beings.

The Mole People (1956)
So it starts out with an archaeological team in the 50's that stumbles upon this underground civilization of a lost dynasty of Sumerians, who have apparently failed to evolve over the past 5,000 years. The plot becomes a bit fuzzy here, but pretty much only three people survive. The albinos decide to sacrifice these three survivors, but they escape. One of them dies, but the other two Dr. Bentley (John Agar) and Dr. Bellamin (Hugh Beaumont) escape by shining a flashlight in the albinos and mole people's faces. Wait- who are these mole people? They are mutant humanoid mole-type creatures that are the mistreated slaves of the albinos and resemble the sand people from Star Wars. Just like the albinos, living underground has made them highly sensitive to light. The Sumerian Priest (Alan Napier) believes that the flashlight is the sacred fire of their goddess, Ishtar. They come to believe that Bentley and Bellamin are messengers of Ishtar. They give Bentley a slave, a beautiful woman named Adad (Cynthia Patrick) who is shunned by the albinos because of her tan skin. Of course, she and Bentley fall in love and he promises to take her with him when they escape.

The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)
Scott Carey (Grant Williams) and his wife Louise (Randy Stuart) are sunning themselves on their cabin cruiser. While his wife is below deck, a low mist passes over him. Scott, lying in the sun, is sprinkled with glittery particles that quickly evaporate. Later he is accidentally sprayed with an insecticide while driving and, in the next few days, he finds that he has begun to shrink. First just a few inches, so that his clothes no longer fit, then a little more. Soon he is only three feet tall, and a national curiosity. At six inches tall he can only live in a doll's house and even that becomes impossible when the cat breaks in! Scott flees to the cellar, his wife thinks he has been eaten by the cat and the door to the cellar is closed, trapping him in the littered room where, menaced by a giant spider, he struggles to survive. The most celebrated of director Jack Arnold's science fiction films and a VERY welcome addition to dvd!

The Monolith Monsters (1957)
A strange black meteor crashes near the town of San Angelo and litters the countryside with fragments. When a storm exposes these fragments to water, they grow into skyscraper-sized monoliths! Which then topple and shatter into thousands of pieces that grow into monoliths themselves and repeat the process. Any humans in the way are crushed or turned into human statues. The citizens of San Angelo desperately try to save themselves and the world from the spreading doom.

Monster On The Campus (1958)
A college professor acquires a newly discovered specimen of a prehistoric fish. While examining the find he is accidentally exposed to its blood, turning him into a murderous Neanderthal! And then begins to stalk the college campus, thus bringing us Monster on the Campus!

Get the pop-corn, soft drinks, and maybe even a pizza for a night of classic b-movie fun as this awesome collection of `50's way-out sci-fi thrillers will take you back to the days of goofy gigantic spiders, weird eyed monsters, and lots of classic nostalgia! Highly recommended for collectors of classic sci-fi and `50's camp! I'm lovin' it! It's hard to believe that I got this set from [...] back in May for just under $[...] bucks and now it's discontinued and is being offered at prices ranging from $[...] and up! Talk about a fast seller!

Typical B Horror movies from the 50's era. Love this collection of movies. Monolith Monsters and Incredible Shrinking Man the best of the bunch. Tarantula is so so and the last two (Monster on Campus and Mole People) are laughable but endearing in they're own strange way. So if you are an aficionado of 50's B movies, I think you will really like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 Classic Sci-Fi Movies in 1 Fine Collection Feb. 5 2007
By R. J Rey - Published on
Verified Purchase
Get ready for a heavy dose of 1950s Science Fiction cinema with "The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection". This 3-Disc collection includes five of Universal's classic Sci-fi movies (The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Mole People, Tarantula, The Monolith Monsters and Monster on the Campus). In "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (1957), Ad writer Robert Carrey (Grant Williams) is exposed to radioactive fog and gradually shrinks with no end in sight. In "Tarantula" (1955), a test spider injected with an experimental growth serum turns to a gigantic monster that terrorizes the countryside. In "The Mole People" (1956), a team of archeologists discover a lost civilization living deep beneath the earth. In "The Monolith Monsters" (1957), strange black meteors grow into giant monoliths that threatened the citizens of a small desert town. In "Monster on the Campus" (1958), the DNA of a prehistoric fish turns a university professor (Arthur Franz) into a murderous Neanderthal. All five classic films are fine examples of 1950s Sci-Fi cinema, but "The Incredible Shrinking Man" and "Tarantula" are the real highlights of this collection. Directed by Jack Arnold (Creature of the Black Lagoon), "The Incredible Shrinking Man" was one of Universal's best 1950s Sci-Fi films and features some effective camera work, good visual effects and a surprising finish. "Tarantula" was inspired by the 1954 Sci-Fi movie "Them!" and includes a brief appearance of screen favorite Clint Eastwood.

Fans of the Sci-Fi genre won't want to miss out on "The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection". Though "The Incredible Shrinking Man" is presented in a nice 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen format, the other four movies are presented in standard full screen format. The 3-Disc collection contains a clean B&W video transfer and a well balanced 2.0 Dolby Digital sound. Fans expected some commentaries or short featurettes in this release but its only supplemental extras are the films' original trailers. Overall, "The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection" gets a "B".

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Collection June 18 2007
By Joshua Koppel - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a good solid collection of classic sci fi films. There are two films per disk (except the last disk). Like the original video releases, each film is accompanied by its original theatrical trailer.

Tarantula - Science goes awry and creates a deadly spider that just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Monolith Monsters - Deadly rocks fall from space. They grow, topple, and shatter. Then the pieces do the same and a town lies in their path if they can't be stopped.
The Incredible Shrinking Man - The classic story of a man who begins shrinking after being exposed to a strange cloud. Just how small can he get and still survive?
The Mole People - An underground race has not seen the sun in millennia. Explorers find them and their civilization becomes unstable.
Monster on the Campus - A scientist on campus discovers a way to cause creatures to revert to an earlier evolutionary state. He tests it on himself and becomes the title creature.

Five classic films at a good price. Picture and sound quality are good. Check it out.
