After churning out a quartet of successful teenage-angst-fueled monster bops for American International, producer Herman Cohen pulled up stakes and moved to England to work for Anglo-Amalgamated. And after the financial success of Horrors of the Black Museum, Cohen was given free rein for a follow up and returned to his roots, meaning a gorilla would definitely be involved — this one, his biggest yet. As for our second feature, we have Edward G. Ulmer’s tell don’t show because we can’t afford anything take on the future, where an out of time test-pilot is the last fertile man on Earth and is charged with repopulating the planet. Could be worse gigs, I guess.
