Sci-Fi Collector's Set
RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON
This sci-fi action thriller highlights government agent Commando Cody (George Wallace) who is sent to determine the origin of a sequence of unwarranted nuclear blasts that are an imminent danger to earth. Cody quickly learns that Retik (Roy Barcroft), the moon's leader, is the mastermind behind a plot to invade earth, due to his planet's atmosphere deficiency. The malevolent leader enlists the help of his minion, Krog (Peter Brocco), to do his bidding--waging an underhanded war with earth. But what Retik doesn't know, is that Cody has a few tricks up his sleeve of his own.
THE GIANT GILA MONSTER
Another creation hailing from the great state of Texas, The Giant Gila Monster tells the story of a mammoth Gila Monster that terrorizes an unsuspecting town much in the same way that Godzilla did--by stomping through the city streets, crushing buildings and automobiles, knocking things over, and killing at will. When a local sports car aficionado's kid sister is nearly slain by the giant menace, he decides to take matters into his own hands and stop the monster from wreaking any more havoc.
THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN
An invisible man uses his transparent state to his advantage--robbing banks. Douglas Kennedy, with Marguerite Chapman as his mischief-making girlfriend, plays the transparent man. This sci-fi action thriller was filmed in Dallas at the Texas State Fairgrounds in 1960.
ALIENS FROM SPACE
A group of extraterrestrials determined to take over Earth and make it their new home, station themselves in a canyon and set about their task. They begin with nuclear scientist Doug Martin (Peter Graves) by way of mind control and force him to engage in acts of spying and sabotage. When it dawns upon the scientist what is happening, he attempts to warn others but without success. Martin, in an act of heroism, swears to take the aliens out, regardless of the price he has to pay--even if it means his own life.
THE PHANTOM FROM 10,000 LEAGUES
After a succession of puzzling deaths occur along the coast, Dr. Ted Stevens (Kent Taylor), a scientist, and detective William Grant (Rodney Bell), dispatched by the government, attempt to uncover who or what is responsible. But when the victims and their property betray evidence of radiation exposure, Grant begins to suspect that the Pacific College of Oceanography is involved. His suspicions are virtually confirmed when he discovers an associate of the college pacing the shore with a spear gun in hand. They then discover the trail of radiation spills from an unknown origin at the ocean's bottom, which the investigators fear is a monstrous sea beast that haunts the beach in search of prey.
THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE
In this 1950's cult classic, Dr. Cortner's (Herb Evers) central interest in medical science could be construed as beneficial to society--but not in an ethical, moralistic capacity. Instead of healing, he is attracted to the reanimation of the dead through electric shock. And when his fiancée, Jan Compton (Virginia Leith), is decapitated in an accident that he causes, Dr. Cortner becomes obsessed with the idea of making her whole again. He keeps her head alive in his laboratory, in part, by a serum he has developed. Dr. Cortner searches the streets for an attractive body for Jan, but she begins to resent Bill for not allowing her to perish in the accident. Back at the lab, an embittered Jan begins to plot her revenge...
ABRAXAS: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE
An action sci-fi produced in Canada that tells the story of an intergalactic lawman, Abraxas (Jesse "The Body" Ventura), who travels to Earth on the trail of a malevolent alien who seeks a human female to breed with. All the alien needs to do is impregnate her with a simple touch, making time Abraxas' most precious commodity.
THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE
An alien spacecraft has mechanical problems and crashes into the moon. The alien beings aboard cannot complete the repairs themselves, so they use their abilities to control and use a number of scientists as slaves that they manipulate. However, unbeknownst to them, one of the scientists has a metal plate in his head that protects him from their powers. He makes a voyage to the moon in an attempt to communicate with the beings. Once there, he tells them that the people of Earth would help them--all they need to do is ask. The movie is an adaptation of Joseph Millard's The Gods Hate Kansas.
FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS
The film, partly meant to impart an anti-nuclear message, was first released in Germany under the name The Silent Star, and then in Poland, entitled First Spaceship on Venus. It tells the story of the discovery of a peculiar alien item that leads to a staffed mission to Venus. Once on the planet, the team learns that Venus's populace has been destroyed by a nuclear mistake. The group must then return to Earth and impart this crucial knowledge lest the same mistake be repeated.
VOYAGE TO THE PREHISTORIC PLANET
When a rocket ship containing a crew is sent to Venus, the mission goes horribly wrong and another team is dispatched to the mist enshrouded planet to search for survivors.

The island is also inhabited by mad scientist Dr. Milo Craigis (Baruch Lumet) and his beautiful daughter Ann (Ingrid Goude). Dr. Craigis, who has been conducting tests to prevent overpopulation by shrinking humans, has accidentally created a race of giant shrews that manage to escape during the storm.

A group of aliens land their spaceship on Earth to determine if it is a suitable place to graze their livestock, a giant race of crab-like monsters called Gargons. When the Gargons begin feasting on human prey, all but one of the investigating aliens are pleased to have found such an accommodating planet. The disagreeing alien, however, believes that because Earth sustains intelligent life, they should leave it be. Unable to change his partner's mind, the lone alien sets out to warn Earth and prevent the invasion of man-eating Gargons in a singular effort to save the world.

update : Received set today the transfers / sound and picture are much better than mill creek sets, it looks like they really took their time and did it right, at the start of the disks they say theyve remastered them from the original masters and apologize for any imperfections caused by time degridation. I watched 3 movies in full on a big screen tv with stereo surround and everything looked and sounded great. The packaging is really good with arms inside case for disks, disks are one sided, chapters and menues better than other value sets. One draw back is no titles on most the disks, but there is nice art work. Im happy, for this price to have classics like Aliens from Space, and The brain that wouldnt die with quality good enough I can really enjoy it on my set up is great."
