Description by OLDIES.com:

Elvira continues her late-night horror tradition with the MOVIE MACABRE series, which finds the buxom Mistress of the Dark hosting a selection of campy horror classics. This volume presents a double feature of flicks: in DOOMSDAY MACHINE (1972), orbiting astronauts attempt to repopulate mankind after Earth is destroyed by a nuclear holocaust; and in WEREWOLF OF WASHINGTON (1973), a member of the presidential press corps morphs into a lycanthrope and preys on his political enemies.

Doomsday Machine (1972):"Doomsday Machine" is a tension-laden, sci-fi escapade directed by Lee Sholem, Herbert J. Leder, and Harry Hope, staged against a chilling Cold War backdrop. The plot unfolds as spies uncover a nefarious plan by the Red Chinese who have engineered a catastrophic doomsday machine capable of erasing the Earth's surface. With time ticking away, a U.S. space mission to Venus, dubbed Project Astra, morphs into humanity's desperate bid for survival when commandeered by the military. This narrative is intensified by an ensemble cast including Bobby Van, Ruta Lee, Mala Powers, and others, who find themselves in a race against time to avert global annihilation.

Werewolf of Washington (1973): "Werewolf of Washington" spins a tale of horror and dark comedy under the skilled direction of Milton Moses Ginsberg. The narrative follows Jack Whittier, portrayed by Dean Stockwell, a White House press secretary who, after a mysterious werewolf bite in Europe, becomes a nocturnal monster terrorizing Washington D.C., even posing a lethal threat to the President. The movie, peppered with political satire targeting Richard Nixon’s administration, takes a lycanthropic lens to the corridors of power, adding a layer of eerie amusement. Alongside Stockwell, the cast includes Katalin Kallay, Biff McGuire, and others, who navigate a narrative filled with terror, humor, and unexpected political commentary.
