Then an old man named Tristram Halbin comes for a visit. The second story, "King of the Vampires" deals with a slight-figured killer, called the King of the Vampires by Scotland Yard, which sends Brenner to investigate. The third, "Monster Raid," is about a man turned zombie when he OD's on his experimental drug, who returns to avenge his death at the hands of his widow and her lover-now husband. "Spark of Life" deals with a doctor Mendell (Lon Chaney Jr.) obsessed with the experiments of a thrown-out professor named Erich von Frankenstein, and two of his students who try to restore a cadaver to life. "Count Alucard" (called "Alucard" by Carradine and "Dracula: on the end credits, is a variation on the Dracula story, with the Count acquiring the deed to Carfax Abbey from Harker, as vampiresses and dead bodies start turning up.

The Veil

$19.99 - Free Shipping In The USA
Two years before Thriller, Boris Karloff hosted The Veil, a never-broadcast ten-episode pilot of a TV horror anthology for the Hal Roach Studios in 1958. Boris also starred in nine of The Veil's ten episodes, making this a rare treat for Karloff fans. All ten 26-minute episodes are available--directed by such genre luminaries as George Waggner (The Wolf Man) and Herbert L. Strock (I Was a Teenage Frankenstein) and starring such familiar faces as Patrick Macnee (The Avengers), Robert Hardy (Psychomania), Niall MacGinnis (Curse Of The Demon), Clifford Evans (Kiss Of The Vampire), Morris Ankrum (Earth vs. The Flying Saucers), Eve Brent (Gun Girls) and even a young George Hamilton. So join Boris Karloff for another journey into the world of the unexplainable which lies behind...The Veil. (Uncut).

Morris Ankrum died of trichinosis on September 2, 1964, Pasadena, CA. Trichinosis is a disease caused by eating undercooked meat containing cysts of Trichinella spiralis. Trichinella spiralis can be found in pork, bear, walrus, fox, rat, horse, and lion meat. When a person eats meat from an infected animal, Trichinella cysts break open in the intestines and grow into adult roundworms. The roundworms produce other worms that move through the gut wall and into the bloodstream. These organisms tend to invade muscle tissues, including the heart and diaphragm (the breathing muscle under the lungs). They can also affect the lungs and brain. Ankrum was 67 years old.

Sold as a 2-DVD-R or VHS set.

フランケンシュタインの怪獣 サンダ対ガイラ

A freighter is attacked by a giant octopus during a stormy night. The octopus is then attacked by a hairy green giant (Haruo Nakajima). The Gargantua then turns his attention to the ship and sinks it, killing and eating all the crew, except for one (Ren Yamamoto). When the surviving crew member tells the police what happened, they call in Doctor Paul Stewart (Russ Tamblyn) and his assistant Akemi (Kumi Mizuno). Several years earlier, Stewart had a younger species of the same creature and it is feared that the monster has grown up and now views man as an enemy. After several attacks, the monster is cornered in a forest near a mountain area of Japan and is nearly killed when shot with super laser beams. Nearly electrocuted, just before it dies, a second and larger brown monster (Hiroshi Sekita) arrives and saves it. This is the creature that previously escaped from Stewart's lab, now fully grown to be over 100 feet tall. The brown one then takes the green monster to safety to help it recover, not knowing his "brother's" evil nature. After the green monster recovers sufficiently, he resumes his rampage. But when he stops to rest, the brown one finds out how evil his brother really is and soon the two begin to fight. The green one then runs off and soon heads for Tokyo. While he is there, he grabs Akemi and is about to eat her when the brown one arrives. The green monster drops Akemi, severely injuring her. The two monsters then resume their fight and eventually wind up in Tokyo Bay, where napalm bombs are dropped on them and a volcano erupts, seemingly killing both. Features an excellent display of special effects photography and miniatures. Also stars Kenji Sahara, Nobuo Nakamura, Jun Tazaki, and with Kipp Hamilton.

This film is a sequel to Frankenstein vs. Baragon aka: Frankenstein Conquers The World (1965). However, all references to Frankenstein were cut from this film.

Tab Hunter was originally chosen to play Doctor Paul Stewart.

When the film was released in America, Russ Tamblyn had to re-dub his own voice because of a malfunction in the soundtrack.

In one draft of the script, the film was to end with the volcano not only destroying Sanda and Gaira, but the lava was to destroy Tokyo and the remaining cells of the two monsters as well.

This film was not released in the U.S. until July 29th, 1970, where it played on a double bill with Monster Zero (1965).

NOTE: This is the rare UPA (United Productions Of America) release of this film, which is no longer being circulated on television and other media outlets. This version is far superior to the International version, which has an inferior audio track, image quality, and omits several special effects shots. This version also has far superior picture quality than the International version (which is currently flooding the market) and is the same version everyone grew up watching in the 1970's on local television stations.
