For my final post of the year 2007: Bob Wilkins showed the Columbia Pictures Classic, CURSE OF THE DEMON also known in the UK as NIGHT OF THE DEMON, for his final Saturday Night show for the year, 1967. This movie was first shown on Bob's show back on September 17, 1966. It was released on VHS by both RCA/COLUMBIA HOME VIDEO (SP mode) and the budget line GOODTIMES HOME VIDEO (LP mode) with the longer British Version but with the U.S. Title. Sony Home Entertainment finally released both versions on DVD in 2002 (along with the correct British Title: NIGHT OF THE DEMON). An excellent book on the subject was written by Tony Earnshaw, BEATING THE DEVIL:THE MAKING OF NIGHT OF THE DEMON.

2 days before Christmas, Bob Wilkins showed THE PHANTOM OF THE RUE MORGUE (1954), a remake of the Bela Lugosi Classic as well as Edgar Allan Poe's MUDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE. This movie starred KARL MALDEN in the BELA LUGOSI role. This movie was released in movie theaters in 3D, but obviously was released in flat 2D on Bob's show. Only available on VHS by Warner Home Video.

Believe it or not, Bob Wilkins shows this Universal Classic, though this isn't the best of the Lagoon Creature Trilogy. Though not the best, it is still a pretty interesting movie about scientists trying to surgically change the creature into a more human like hybrid.

Bob Wilkins showed this 1959 Low Budget Horror Classic about an Atomic Scientist who was exposed to radiation which now causes him to change into a murderous lizard-like monster when exposed to the sun.

I don't know much about this Mexican Horror Movie from 1957. IMDB doesn't seem to be much help. Does anyone else know much about this ? Did K. Gordon Murray release this film with his other imports?
