Product Description:

Often called the greatest stop-motion animator of all time, Ray Harryhausen was responsible for many classics of horror and science fiction, creating terrifying, fantastical creatures that arguably have yet to be rivalled by today's technology. This collection features five of Harryhausen's most loved sci-fi classics, which paved the way for generations of animators to come. First, a group of UN astronauts are convinced that they are soon to be the first to tread on the moon's surface in THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON. That is, until they meet the mysterious Arnold Bedford (Edward Judd), who tells them of his travels thence years ago. A Venusian alien being carried as cargo by a military plane survives a crash in 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH. Col. Calder must summon the Italian army to help fight the creature off, but it seems increasingly evident that human weapons are no match for this monster. EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS is a cult classic that pits alien drones against trigger-happy humans. When peaceable aliens arrive at an army base seeking aid for their troubled planet, the Americans respond by attacking, beginning a war that scientist Russ Marvin undertakes to stop--before its too late. Then, five escapees from a Confederate prison find themselves on a MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, populated by all manner of strange inhabitants, in this adventure based on the classic Jules Verne novel. Finally, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA is a spectacular depiction of a giant octopus who has been disturbed from the depths by an H-bomb explosion. It counts among its victims a fishing trawler, a family on an outing, and even the Golden Gate Bridge!
