QUEEN OF OUTER SPACE (1958) New 2018 1080p HD Master 

You’ll go ga-ga over Zsa Zsa like never before as everyone’s favorite Sci-Fi Schlock-a-rama outer space epic gets rejuvenated on this dazzling high definition transfer that stuns with color, clarity and curves (naturally). Well before a certain captain treked his way around the stars, Captain Patterson (Eric Fleming) taught alien women (Zsa Zsa Gabor, Laurie Mitchell, Lisa Davis…) the importance of passion. In the far-flung future of 1985, a space ship is thrown off course when an energy ray destroys the space station. Crash-landing on Venus, the all-male crew discovers a planet possessed by mini-skirted, color-coded clad amazons. Their vindictive queen (Mitchell) intends to turn her energy beam on earth itself, but when the women of Venus meet virile Earth men for the first time in their lives, they rebel. Based on a story by legendary scribe Ben Hecht, adapted by the prolific Charles Beaumont. Add to the fun by spotting costumes and set pieces recycled from other classic Sci-Fi films! Special Feature: Commentary by Laurie Mitchell and Film Historian Tom Weaver. 16×9 Letterbox

 

THE CYCLOPS (1957) New 2018 1080p HD Master

Master of monstrous menace, the original Mr. B.I.G., Bert I. Gordon (Beginning of the End, The Amazing Colossal Man), is the mastermind behind the movie magic in this tale of mega-sized Mexican fauna. Hoping to locate her missing aviator husband, Susan Winter (Gloria Talbott) organizes an expedition deep into the wilds of Mexico. Discovering a lost valley surmounted by mountains aglow with uranium, Susan and her three companions end up battling behemoth bugs and giant lizards while one of the party (Lon Chaney, Jr.) starts meandering down the path of Sierra Madre-style psychosis. Then the 25′ tall Cyclops who stops at nothing to protect his turf appears and the screaming starts… This guilty pleasure (and prelude to B.I.G.’s later Colossal films) is decidedly more eye-popping than ever before thanks to its sparkling presentation in glorious Black and White on 1080p HD Blu-ray Disc.
