Excellent 2 disc set with sharp focus copies taken from master negs. These are the original theatrical release prints and not the inferior TV ones, short extracts of which are included in each case to highlight the comparisons. Entertaining commentaries, if required, accompany Crab Monsters and Not of this Earth. Crab Monsters also has the original UK distributor leader, which is a nice nostalgia extra for those of us who saw this Associated British-Pathe programme in 1957. War of the Satellites has the original UK censor card.
A comprehensive trailers bonus includes these three films plus 25 others spanning Corman's credits from early days to Frankenstein Unbound. A stills caption error on the reverse cover is only a minor fault. Overall this is a very
worthy addition to the DVD library of any follower of Corman's early work. Highly recommended.

as it was once advertised in a newspaper,according to Ramsey Campbell at least.A triple bill of late 50's black & white movies from the Roger Corman stable.Though region 1 these play in U.K.machines.The best known 2 have a commentary with Sci fi luminaries,the other disc with War of the Satellites on it Includes a 25 min feature on the man himself,a pre-cursor to the full length film about him.Plus a 28 trailers selection of some of the many films in his portfolio.A great night or two's entertainment.

Shout Factory has fulfilled my wildest dreams! These DVDs of three classic Roger Corman Fifties science-fiction "classics" are the best prints I have ever seen. No complaints at all. And all the bonus materials make the price astounding! Purchase this item with no fear. You will be very pleased with the clarity and the quality.

Roger Corman Triple Feature 22 Jan 2011
By David W. Mosley - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Finally a release of the cult classic Not Of This Earth and a decent copy of Attack of the Crab Monsters. This is a two disc set with nice extras including interesting commentaries on Attack of the Crab Monsters and Not Of This Earth. The prints on all 3 movies are excellent. A real treat for 1950's scifi/horror fans. A 5-Star release!!!

Primo Corman 22 Jan 2011
By William Amazzini - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Vintage Science Fiction and Horror fans have cause to celebrate with this magnificent release from Shout Factory. Over the years, movie auteurs and critics have raved about Roger Corman's Poe Films with Vincent Price but back in the fifties he was cutting his directing chops with over a dozen low budget genre films which the ones included in this set are among his best and rarest. All these titles have never seen the light of day in pristine negative transfers in both 16mm film or Video tape. Now in the digital age, our wish has come true. Not only do you have these films looking as they must have on the big screen over fifty years ago , you have an incredible array of extras including a brand new interview with the master plus a tribute documentary with comments by the people who worked and knew him in the business and a collection of over 25 trailers of his best work. The piece de resistance is audio commentaries on 'ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS' and 'NOT OF THIS EARTH' by three great Film Historians who I had the honor and pleasure of knowing over twenty years ago, Tom Weaver and the Brunas brothers Michael and John who I lovingly remember joining them scrambling over each others basements back in the day to see a 16mm print of 'WAR OF THE SATELLITES' and treating it like the second coming. These men know their stuff and boy, do I miss them and their incredible candor and wit. Shout Factory has released the first important release of this year and every genre fan owes it to themselves to include these great guilty pleasures in their collections. And where else can you see two of the most underrated actresses of their generation : Beverly Garland and Susan Cabot strutting their stuff and making you quiver with their beauty and intelligence which always made mince meat of their leading men and made you believe the words they had to recite from the scripts meant so much more then their mediocre surroundings. Highly recommended.

Worth Its Weight (& Wait) in Gold - Definitive Early Corman! 30 Jan 2011
By R. Craig - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Fans of the filmmaker, of the genre, of cult film in general will be well advised to snap up this extraordinary DVD set before it becomes a scarcity. After years of lousy bootleg video tapes, Shout Factory has finally released official copies of three out of the four drive-in pictures Roger Corman made for Allied Artists (Teenage Doll is the other one, and as fantastic as the other three).

First up, on Disc 1 - "The Greatest Double Horror Show of All Time!" - Crab Monsters and Not of this Earth, in near-pristine UK theatrical prints, and they have never looked better. Floyd Crosby's moody cinematography, Paul Julian's marvelous animated title sequences, and Ronald Stein's haunting scores both come to life in these new releases, which is like watching these classics for the first time.

Crab Monsters stands up today better than ever, of course featuring the greatest monster prop of all time, an expressionist aluminum-and-styrofoam sculpture which puts modern Giger-influenced creature design to shame. Not of This Earth was Corman's wild attempt to create a science-fiction fable inspired by European neo-realism, and is as dark and gloomy a drive-in picture as was ever made, with Paul Birch's vampire-alien character one of the great performances of the 1950s.

Disc 2 features War of the Satellites (also via a near-mint UK theatrical print), one of Corman's most misunderstood and under-appreciated pictures IMHO, an exciting parable on the moral duality of Man, with magnificently cool miniatures and f/x by Jack Rabin, Irving Block and Louis DeWitt, along with a thrilling score by Walter Greene (one of the decade's finest), and an absolutely incredible dual-role performance by Richard Devon.

But the Bonus Features are worth the price of admission alone. The trailer compilation features some really rare ones, including the original double-bill trailer for Crab Monsters/Not of This Earth, which I had never encountered before, a very exciting find indeed. And joy of joys, they even included the additional footage from the television syndication packages on these films (including those beloved prologue crawls, purportedly penned by film historian William K. Everson!), scenes which will be instantly recognizable to anyone who watched these great flicks over and over again on the Million Dollar Movie in the mid-1960s.

I have always thought that 1956-1961 was Corman's most brilliant creative period, as he was cranking out little genre masterpieces like these almost monthly. There is nothing even remotely like them today, of course, and seeing these dear drive-in gems rescued from oblivion is truly cause for celebration.

So turn off the sophomoric fan-boy audio commentary by "The Weaver Gang," and enjoy these time-honored cult classics in their pure state, as you might have originally seen them back in 1957 or 1958. B-Film does not get better than this, folks - what Corman did with $100,000 fifty years ago, Spielberg could not recreate for a billion dollars today.

Now let us pray to the Goddess of Cult Film for a release of Teenage Doll, the other picture Corman made for Woolner Brothers/Allied Artists, in which he concocted a highly stylized, virtually abstract use of "beat" language in the service of B-melodrama, enhanced by another stunning Walter Greene score. (The use of arcane linguistics to convey a sense of foreign "otherness" was prominent in many Corman features of the day, Not of This Earth, War of the Satellites and The Undead amongst them, but Teenage Doll is his crowning achievement in this experimenting with esoteric speech.)

Finally...Justice to Forgotten Films 6 Feb 2011
By R. Gawlitta - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I waited to read reviews before I ordered. I did, and am more than satisfied. The history of independent film probably was brought to the modern sensibilities via Ed Wood, and his failure. Here we have Roger Corman, an innovator, and some really good prints of films that were thought as lost; Shout Entertainment has delivered a package that makes a 50's trash-film junkie like me scream with joy. The lowest budget-type film is Crab Monsters; War of the Satellites is literate and fun; the best of all is Not of This Earth, a smart story, and creepiest of the bunch. Beverly Garland is the best scream queen ever. I look forward to any future release from the Shout company. They have taken care to present a quality product, which can only encourage them to continue. The Nicholson estate has a hold on some of the best AIP/Corman films, like It Conquered the World and Invasion of the Saucermen. They'd better let loose, or the audience who really appreciates this stuff will all be dead. Thanks, Shout...
