Arrow has compiled four of Katzman's monster movies from the 1950s in one glorious collection and loaded them up with special features including an 80-page collector’s art book featuring reproduction stills and artwork from each film and new writing by historian and critic, Stephen R. Bissette. The four films include Creature with the Atom Brain, The Werewolf, The Zombies of Mora Tau, and The Giant Claw.

Episode 1. Crypto talk with Stephen Bissette

Light, Darkness and Dreamscapes

So much on this first episode! My co-hostess with the mostess, Scarah Stashko (my wife!) and I were recording an episode of THE GHOUL CAST (one of the BEST Horror podcasts around, courtesy of the FLINT HORROR COLLECTIVE) about Cryptozoology. I thought it was a perfect time to morph into the very first episode of LIGHT, DARKNESS and DREAMSCAPES. And what a better way to get started than to have a living legend of art, story and all around horror give us a call. Yes, THE Stephen Bissette (SWAMP THING, DEEP RED and SO MUCH MORE) was on the line, talking to us about his book, CRYPTID CINEMA. What a PERFECT way to segue from THE GHOUL CAST to LDD. His book cuts deep into the massively overlooked genre of cryptid cinema and explores way too much to capture in just an hour or so. We will be happy and ready to have him back on future podcasts! What an excellent dude.
