Lights, Camera, Action!
Your Wednesday B-Movie Cinema

Yes, my amigos, it's that time again...

Following up last week's hit broadcast of one of the greatest juvenile delinquency flick from the dregs and detritus of the public domain the Isotope brings you a movie that will truly haunt your dreams! This week we proudly present to you another near classic from the year 1961...

The Beast of Yucca Flats

Americans have always wondered what the strange and eerie results might be of the hundreds of atomic tests that shattered the skyline over Yucca Flats, Nevada in the 40's and 50's... and thanks to low-rent director supreme Coleman Francis and B-movie star of the first magnitude Tor Johnson, they finally got their answer.

This 1961 thriller includes everything you could possibly want in a drive-in anti-classic: secret atomic testing, innocent victims, KGB agents armed to the teeth, bumbling police officers, nearly naked girls, and one hell of a creepy baddie with a mad on for human flesh. Watch in horror as radiation layes waste to a brilliant Soviet scientist! Hold onto your date as The Beast wanders the atomic wasteland on a quest to kill! Squirm in horror as KGB agents go head to head with bumbling backroads cops over the fate of the planet! Listen to what must surely be the greatest voice-over in all of filmdom! And feel your stomach churn from the first geiger counter soundtracked necrophilliac love scene to the last bunny-laden final act!

The glorious Tor Johnson can also be seen in perpetually popular drive-in theatre flicks like Plan 9 From Outer Space, Carousel, and Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion.
