The package, more often than not, offered more than the contents.

Guy,

You are so right. Of the above films, "Monster that Challenged the World" is probably the best edit. "Night Caller" starts out wonderfully but jumps to the end so abruptly that it makes little sense. The "Claw Monsters" box is vastly superior to the film inside.

Shorty,

I'll do my best. What titles would you like to see?

Doug

As a kid I always figured THE CLAW MONSTERS was ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS, but apparently it's the serial PANTHER GIRL OF THE CONGO. That cover artist looks like he might have done some covers for Eerie Publications.

I've got to admit Dinosaurus has always been a childhood guilty pleasure of mine, although I still don't have the 8mm digest. I'm assuming it features the climatic "beast v.s. machine" battle.

Time to add more images - as you can see I lean towards that monster art!!

I've always wondered if this Rodan artwork was taken from any existing posters or is it only found on the 8mm digests.

Cheers

Columbia Pictures 1956, I understand that Ray Harryhausen did the effects.

Terry

As I remember, "Dinosaurus" was an ok edit. It does have the Dino vs. Digger sequence. I always feel sad when the Bronto buys it.

Strange how "Night of the Blood Beast" uses the artwork from Hemisphere's "Beast of Blood"!

Graham,

Nice cover! I forgot about that one.

And another:

The MASTER OF HORROR box was always one of my favorites. As I kid, I always wanted to buy that digest but could never acquire it. After 35+ years, I finally acquired the digest last year, but was disappointed when (surprise!) the actual digest didn't live up to the promise of the box art. (Another digest that didn't come close to living up to its box art was MY SON, THE VAMPIRE.)

Oh well, I guess that's the fun of digest box art.

Brad,

"Master of Horror" is the US edit of the 1965 Argentinian film "Obras Maestras Del Terror". The film tells three Edgar Allan Poe tales, "The Facts in M. Valdemar's Case", "The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell-Tale Heart". The US release of the feature cut out the last story. The Ken digest uses the Valdemar segment.

Great post!

The Claw Monsters was the VERY FIRST S8 movie I ever bought! I was about nine years old and saved my money to go to Holiday Village (A department store in Bloomington, Minnesota that's still there!) to buy a movie.

My dad drove me and my friend there and they always had a ton of movies and I thought The Claw Monsters cover looked the coolest so I bought it! I remember being soooo mad about how bad it was! HAH! I still have it and I'm still mad!

Yes, I felt gyped as a kid when I purchased the 50-foot CLAW MONSTERS. As I recall, the actual "claw monster" looked to be a grasshopper -- those darn Republic serials!

Tim & John,

I always wanted Claw Monsters because I had it confused with Roger Corman's "Attack of the Crab Monsters"!
