"When Bryan Senn writes a book on cinema, monster movie fans know he will grab their attention right away and won't let go..." -- Scary Monsters Magazine.
In the mid 1950s, to combat declining theater attendance, film distributors began releasing pre-packaged genre double-bills -- including many horror and science fiction double features. Though many of these films were low-budget and low-end, others such as Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Horror of Dracula, and The Fly became bona fide classics.
Beginning with Universal-International's 1955 pairing of Revenge of the Creature and Cult of the Cobra, 147 officially sanctioned horror and sci-fi double-bills were released over a 20-year period. This book presents these double features year by year and includes production details, historical notes, and critical commentary for each film.
