Beast from Haunted Cave + Ski Troop Attack 10/10/23

Film Masters

The latest double feature from the new label Film Masters yields two thrillers from dynamo producer Roger Corman, filmed in snowy South Dakota using the same actors and technical talent. The monster romp is a fine directing debut for cult favorite Monte Hellman, from a retread crime script by the dependable Charles B. Griffith. The second show is a micro-budgeted war film on skis, a creditable ‘make something from nothing’ effort. The special edition extras celebrate Corman’s hit & run filmmaking style, and are topped by Tom Weaver’s candid, research-laden audio commentary. On Blu-ray from Film Masters.
