Scream Factory has done special editions for a lot of films from the ’70s and ’80s but it is going all the way back to the ’50s for a new blu-ray/DVD double bill they are releasing early next year. January will see a two-for-one release of The Beast Of Hollow Mountain, a dinosaur flick with stop-motion effects by Willis O’Brien, and The Neanderthal Man, a mad scientist flick with a man-in-a-suit prehistoric creature. Read on for all the sci-fi shenanigans…
