    This title was a regular staple with Chiller Theater and others over the years but seem to be missing in action on DVD. Any idea if or when it may show up?

    Well, the only good thing about Sony's briefly having the Midnight Movies line was that there was hope this turkey (literally) would be released as part of that series. It's a Columbia film, and we all know about the care and consistency with which Sony has been releasing catalog titles in recent years.. in other words, don't hold your breath.

    One of the all time best so-bad-it's-hilarious movies.

    Sony is releasing a Boris Karloff Collection next month and supposedly will start releasing chronological Three Stooges sets next year. So it's possible they'll give us a 50s Science Fiction set similar to the one that came out from Universal today. The set could include:

    Creature With the Atom Brain
    The Werewolf
    The Man Who Turned to Stone
    Zombies of Mora Tau
    The 27th Day
    The Giant Claw
    The Night the World Exploded
    12 to the Moon

    No really great titles there, but nostalgic to baby boomers.

    There are not enough Jeff Morrow films on DVD for my tastes. This would be welcome.

    Sony Home Video has just changed in leadership, the new guy is supposed to be much more amenable to catalogue titles. So maybe we'll saw CLAW and some other old stuff soon.
