“HE COMES FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE!”
Launching BAR TRASH as we mean to go on, Creature With The Atom Brain is a chilling science-fiction thriller from 1955 directed by Edward L. Cahn (Invasion Of The Hell Creatures) and penned by legendary screenwriter Curt Siodmak (Bride Of The Gorilla). A detective investigates a series of murders orchestrated by a mob boss and an ex-Nazi scientist. Turns out the bad guys are reanimating dead thugs to do their dirty work using atomic radiation… Can anyone stop their nuclear-powered zombies?
This “classic Cold War creature feature” was released by Arrow Video in their limited edition Blu-ray boxset Cold War Creatures: Four Films From Sam Katzman. The set contains four thrilling films and a host of additional content including intros by critic Kim Newman, various takes on producer Sam Katzman’s incredible career, and stunning artwork by Matt Griffin.
