John Landis made his first dent in Hollywood with this hilarious parody of Z-grade monster movies, and it was big enough to launch a film career. The kudos go to Landis’ comic monkey-man performance, wearing a Schockthropus ape suit by the 20 year-old self taught makeup whiz Rick Baker. Only monster movie fans will understand, but they’ll be charmed. This foreign edition is stacked with schlock-thropic extras. With Saul Kahan, Eliza Garrett, Joseph Piantadosi and Harriet White Medin. On All Region Blu-ray and DVD from Turbine Media Group.
