    While these films aren't 5-star, this collection is with enough 'Must See' entries to make this one of the best monster-movie collections ever. TARANTULA, DEADLY MANTIS and the LAND UNKNOWN have been favorites for too long to objectify them. DR. CYCLOPS perhaps the weakest of the lot. But in between, how can anyone think TOO badly of a film where a lowly flashlight is the weapon-of-choice? That's THE MOLE PEOPLE.

    CULT OF THE COBRA is a terrific murder mystery and a good reason GIs should obey off-limits warnings when visiting foreign entertainment, uh, palaces.

    MONSTER ON CAMPUS and LEECH WOMAN are bad but so much fun. INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN has been lauded for its miniaturing special effects.

    But the real hit for me was THE MONOLITH MONSTERS. Terrific story, decent enough acting and dialog, and a clear demonstration that, with imagination, cheap special effects can seem earth-shattering.
