The fun Fifties flick Monster from Green Hell (1957) emerges from the era of giant bugs and atomic testing comes this low budget howler about mutant wasps.

When scientists try to understand the effects of radiation on earth creatures, the result brings them to an area of Africa known as “Green Hell,” where wasps have mutated into monsters! Jim Davis, who would someday star in the TV series Dallas, plays Dr. Quent Brady, the scientist who starts the whole mess.

The film also stars Vladimir Sokoloff (The Life of Emile Zola, Mission to Moscow) as the skeptical Dr. Lorentz, and Joel Fluellen (Raisin in the Sun), as Arobi, who warns Brady to beware of the African location. The locals don’t call it “Green Hell” for nothing!

The special-edition release features a stunning 4K transfer, including both widescreen (1.85:1) and full frame (1.33:1) versions of the film It marks the latest in a series of collaborations between The Film Detective and The Wade Williams Collection.

Special Features in the newly remastered flick include the following:

-Missouri Born: The Films of Jim Davis retrospective
-Commentary by author/artist Stephen R. Bissette
-Original essay in full color booklet
