For those that are fans of this camp classic, I have found a widescreen edition of The Beast of Yucca Flats DVD courtesy of Retromedia. I had no idea this was available. Based on what I've read, and yes I did order it, this could be the definitive DVD until a Blu-ray comes out, if ever.
The listing says "Seen here for the first time in an enhanced widescreen 35mm progressive scan presentation"

I can finally ditch the Wade Williams full screen version and get rid of another DVD that's in one of those horrible snapper cases ! :)

I wanted to share my findings with other fans

Thanks for the info David. I have THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS (54 min) from Wade Williams in 1.37:1 snapper case. And I do have BEAST FROM HAUNTED CAVE (72 min) from Synapse Films in 1.85:1. This also includes a booklet from Gene Warren and is the full version with added scenes filmed from a few years later (the Retro says the same thing).

So, for that price I'll pick up YUCCA for my collection....just ordered.

According to what Ive read this also has an extended opening scene with the topless woman. I cant wait to watch this, I should have it today and see how this looks !

I have Retromedia's Beast from Haunted Cave on Blu-ray (paired with The Wasp Woman) too but I don't mind owning it on DVD as long as I have a great DVD quality release of The Beast from Yucca Flats in its OAR ! :)

I was pleased with the PQ, there is more information and the sides. The top and bottom seemed to be slightly cropped but I didnt think it was such a big deal. The image is clean just like the Image DVD. The nude scene at the beginning is longer too. This was a great pickup !

Watch it get a Blu-ray now that I bought the DVD ! Isnt that how it always works :D
