12 Sci-Fi Cult Classics Collection

Aliens … Monsters … Brain Swapping …
Anything Was Possible on the Cusp of the Atomic Age

15+ Hours of Science-Fiction From the 1920s to 1960s
3-Disc DVD Collector’s Set Out May 31st

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — May 1, 2016 — For Immediate Release — From the late ’20s through the ’60s, there was a time when the cinematic idea of the future bordered on visionary and down-right absurd. Now, blast into the past with more than 15 hours of film, which paved the way for the science-fiction genre, with the 12 Sci-Fi Cult Classics Collection, available in a special, three-disc DVD collector’s set  May 31 from Film Chest Media Group.

On the cusp of the atomic age when rockets were launching into space and anything was possible, the science-fiction genre exploded onto the big screen, exploiting the curiosities and fears of the cosmic unknown.

Sci-fi producers pandered to the public with questionable discoveries and partial truths involving science of the future. The plots, while not completely believable, offered situations that featured different laws of science, separate from those known from past  or present, and embraced the concepts of environmental change, space travel and life on other planets, among a variety of topics, making great fodder for filmmakers of the time.

Featured in this special, 3-disc DVD collector’s set are Metropolis (1927), Phantom From Space (1953), The Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959), The Giant Gila Monster (1959),  The Killer Shrews (1959), Teenagers From Outer Space (1959), The Wasp Woman (1959), The Amazing Transparent Man (1960), The Phantom Planet (1961), The Brain That Wouldn’t Die (1962), The Atomic Brain (1963) and Destroy All Planets (1969).

12 Sci-Fi Cult Classics Collection is presented in full screen with an aspect ratio of 4 x 3 and original sound.  Special features include synopses and a photo gallery.
