Summary
  • The giant claw: In an act of cosmic irony, an enormous bird from outer space descends upon the Earth and begins chowing down on people. As usual, scientists and the military must team up to save our planet
  • Creature with the atom brain: A police doctor is hot on the trail of a mob boss who's hired an ex-Nazi scientist to reanimate his dead thugs
  • Zombies of Mora Tau: Loopy adventure about a sunken ship's cargo of diamonds guarded by its zombified crew members
  • The werewolf: An auto accident survivor is used by two scientists as a subject for their experiments to create a vaccine for nuclear fall-out. Unfortunately, it has a rather hairy side effect
