    A really neat sci fi thriller from late 1955/early 1956 from the early days of AIP PIctures, known at the time as ARC(American Releasing Corporation). I have the DVD and the picture is okay, but the sound levels are very low on the audio. The blu ray should be a nice upgrade. I'm hoping for some other ARC/AIP titles getting released on Blu ray like The Beast With A Million Eyes and The She Creature.

    Is this one of the Susan Hart titles? I suspect not.

    Its not one of the 5 AIP's owned by Susan Hart. This is from the Arkoff estate they have around 12 titles that Shout can release. Off the top of my head: Machine Gun Kelly, Earth vs. the Spider. War of the Colossal Beast, Blood of the Vampire, The She Creature, Voodoo Woman, Viking Women, How to Make a Monster and several others.
    The 5 Susan Hart has are Teenage Werewolf, Teenage Frankenstein, The Amazing Colossal Man, Invasion of the Saucer men and It Conquered the World. Shout does not have access to any of the Hart titles.

    Blood Of The Vampire is not an AIP title. It was released by Universal International in the U.S., but has been mistakenly thought of as a Hammer title.

    Also regarding the AIP titles Shout could release, I am not certain about Voodoo Woman. I do know those others were out on videocassette in the early 1990's, however I don't remember that one ever being officially released on video or if it is one of the others owned by Susan Hart.

    Don't forget about Terror From The Year 5000. She owns that one too.

    “Werewolf. Frankenstein. They want to put an end to us. They say we’re through. There’s gratitude. Don’t they realize that the monsters I created from my first Prehistoric Man thru the Spaceman of the Future, why all these, paid for this studio? Made the owners rich and famous. Now they say it’s over. But it isn’t over! I’ll destroy this studio. See it go up in flames before I…. No. No, I’ll destroy them first. And I’ll use the very monsters they mocked to bring them to an end.”--Pete Dumond, American-International Pictures Studio Make-up Artist (Robert H. Harris) from HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER (1958) screenplay by Kenneth Langtry (Aben Kendel) and Herman Cohen, story concept credited to Kenneth Langtry and Herman Cohen, directed by Herbert L. Strock.

    Wow!

    This is indeed a significant breath through (and one that's long overdue).

    DAY THE WORLD ENDED (1956) co-billed with THE PHANTOM FROM 10,000 LEAGUES (1956) was Roger Corman's first major box office smash hit and it is as good as anything (if not better) in that 'other' individual's limited 9 film 1950s AIP collection.

    I can hardly wait for HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER (1958) with its spectacular 12 minute colour climax fully restored and digitally remastered in the blu-ray medium to surface.

    Other AIP 1950s genre titles in the collection include:

    THE SHE-CREATURE (1956) - Paul Blaisdell
    THE UNDEAD (1957) - Roger Coman
    BLOOD OF DRACULA (1957) - Herman Cohen
    EARTH VS. THE SPIDER aka THE SPIDER (1958) - Bert I. Gordon
    TEENAGE CAVEMAN (1958) with a pre-THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. Robert Vaughn
    WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST (1958) with a colour climax!

    Great things are happening!

    I didn't remember Voodoo Woman being one of the titles released on videocassette by RCA/Columbia back in the early 1990's. I have it on DVD from Rare Nightmare. Of course, not a commercially released title.

    Although I doubt there will be any Blu-ray releases, Shout has added a number of AIP's war movies on their Shout Factory TV channel and a few on Amazon Prime. I watched William Witney's PARATROOP COMMAND recently and it is an excellent example of how to do a WW2 movie on a limited budget. Richard Bakalyan stars. Also added: Edward L. Cahn's JET ATTACK with John Agar & Audrey Totter, HELL SQUAD and OPERATION DAMES.

    Here is a photo of the rear cover. I remember this VHS well as its the only place I had seen this movie. I had all the VHS releases but sold them 15 years ago. I wish I didn't sell the Susan Hart titles now.

    Why do you think more of these titles won't make it to blu ray?

    I hope I'm wrong because I'd love to see them on Blu-ray. I just can't imagine enough interest in these B/W war films to make it worth Shout's expense. Fifties and sixties sci-fi and horror films will support titles like this.
    Maybe Shout would release three to four of the titles on standard DVD as a WW2 collection.

    Or they could release them as real value for money barebones twofers – or even threefers – as per Kit Parker's excellent film noir sets. But they won't. :(
