The HORROR And SCI-FI MOVIES Of JERRY WARREN 1956-81
Here's a list of Jerry Warren horror and sci-fi flicks. Photos of Jerry are very rare, above, we see him in a cameo sitting behind John Carradine in a plane in THE INCREDIBLE PETRIFIED WORLD. Also, get this, he can be seen as 'Jitterbug' in GHOST CHASERS from 1944, so, check that one out if you're curious like us!
We start with MAN BEAST from 1956, an okay movie. I still have this poster in my collection, but, It's a Canadian censored version and has dark blue poster paint covering the woman's crotch!! Ah, the good old days...
Then we have THE INCREDIBLE PETRIFIED WORLD from 1959, besides John Carradine and Robert Clarke, this weird flick also stars Phyllis (ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN) Coates and Sheila (BEAST FROM HAUNTED CAVE) Noonan!
I don't know how many times I have to say this, but, TEENAGE ZOMBIES from 1959 is my favorite Warren flick, he even reuses music from KRONOS!! Love this one...
Here's the double bill poster from INVASION OF THE ANIMAL PEOPLE and TERROR OF THE BLOODHUNTERS, both from 1962. He manages to mangle TERROR IN THE MIDNIGHT SUN by adding his new footage and Bloodhunters is one of the weakest movies I've ever seen!
In 1964, Jerry adds his new footage to the Mexican LA CASA DEL TERROR to create FACE OF THE SCREAMING WEREWOLF and makes it confusing as Hell! Lon Chaney stars as the Wolfman...
Also in 1964, Jerry works his magic with ATTACK OF THE MAYAN MUMMY, using footage from the Mexican MAYAN MUMMY series. I was looking at this poster and realized that the images are from THE PHARAOH'S CURSE!!
in 1965, Jerry reworks two Chilean titles, the first adapted from Poe's "The Suicide Club," the second, a tale of young siblings dominated by their evil elder brother, and comes up with the title, CURSE OF THE STONE HAND. I swear, this is one of the most confusing films, nearly (or, fully) unwatchable, YOW!!
Also in 1965 Jerry mangles another Mexican title with CREATURE OF THE WALKING DEAD. One interesting thing is that he uses the term... Walking Dead!!
Again in 1965, he films HOUSE OF THE BLACK DEATH, starring John Carradine, Lon Chaney, Tom (THE CYCLOPS) Drake and Dolores (PHANTOM PLANET) Faith. Doesn't even come close to saving this dingy tale!
I guess Jerry was smoking pot when he came up with THE WILD WORLD OF BAT WOMAN starring Katherine Victor in 1966, because, this is one insane flick, MST tears it a new ass hole to boot!
Jerry finishes his career with FRANKENSTEIN ISLAND in 1981. Man, I don't even know where to start with this one!! Embarrassing roles for John Carradine, Robert Clarke, Katherine Victor, Steve Brodie and Cameron Mitchell. Just the worst, way too long at 97 minutes!! Okay then, tune in Wednesday for more weird junk from the Dungeon Gang!
