Half Man - Half Monster - All Terror! The Manster (movie poster)Natural Horror Picture Show: The Manster (1959)

American foreign news correspondent Larry Stanford (Peter Dyneley) has one last assignment before returning from Japan to the United States — an interview with the reclusive scientist Dr. Robert Suzuki (Tetsu Nakamura), who makes his abode on top of a volcano. Cue ominous music.

During the interview, Dr. Suzuki discusses his work on mutation caused by cosmic rays, and announces that he has invented a method for producing evolutionary change through chemicals. Cue really ominous music.

Movie starts at 7pm; arrive early for a short from the A/V Geeks' archive.
