Performers, Cast and Crew:
Giant spiders and a nuclear threat are just two of the many perils included in this campy double-feature. Including:
MESA OF LOST WOMEN - A mad scientist (Jackie Coogan, "Uncle Fester" from TV's "The Addams Family") has hidden out in the deadly desert known as Zarpa Mesa in Mexico. Here he develops giant spiders, deadly dwarves, and, through the use of a synthesized derivative of spider venom, a race of killer superwomen that cannot be stopped once they choose their sexual prey. This hugely enjoyable film was made by the legendary Ron Ormond, a director whose biggest claim to fame these days is his close association with Ed Wood. However, his movies demand to be seen in their own right, as Mr. Ormond's taste for the bizarre is enough to carry a film by itself.
THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS - 300-pound wrestler Tor plays a noted Russian nuclear scientist chased by Commie spies into the desert where he runs right into an atomic blast and is turned into a hair-eating, club-wielding monster who befriends the local rabbits. Brief nudity at the opening rape scene. Considered one of the worst movies ever made.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Mesa Of Lost Women - If crazed scientists, weird, sexy women and giant spider puppets excite your juices, "Mesa of Lost Women" has the bite! The infamous Dr. Arana (Jackie Coogan) is conducting bizarre experiments in the forbidden Mexican desert of Zarpa Mesa. It is rumored that he has created a race of rabid super-women by injecting them with a "spider venom" derivative so powerful and perverted that it transforms them into deadly sexual predators! Beast of Yucca Flats - Commies made him an atomic mutant! Noted Russian nuclear scientist Joseph Javorsky (Tor Johnson) escapes to the United States with "Top Secret" Soviet documents. U.S. Army personnel accompany him to the Yucca Flats Atomic Testing Grounds, but Soviet agents are in hot pursuit! They run Javorsky's car off the road, right into the bomb testing site. During the ensuing gunfight, an H-bomb detonation kills everyone except Javorsky, who is transformed into a crazed atomic-mutated beast on a bloodthirsty rampage! Inspired by the Cold War, Communist infiltration of America, and the constant threat of atomic attacks, this drive-in theater classic from the Kennedy Era stars cult favorites Tor Johnson and Conrad Brooks from "Plan 9 from Outer Space."
