MONSTERS DON’T GET EVEN…THEY GET MAD!!! AND ARACHNA HAS PROOF ON BEWARE THEATER TODAY!!!
We’re bayou-bound on Beta Max TV as Arachna Of The Spider People and her calcified crony Deadly present the 1942 mutate-man-to-monster movie THE MAD MONSTER on Beware Theater! George Zucco stars as an unorthodox researcher (aka – a mad scientist) who comes up with a sure-fire plan to win World War II for the allies – create an army of half-man/half-animal super soldiers to destroy the Axis powers! Sounds good, right? But his colleagues don’t agree and they have him kicked out of his college. So he does what any self-respecting deranged doctor would do – he retreats to his creepy plantation in the swamps and proceeds with his experiments anyway using his gardener as a guinea pig.
Succeeding in turning the gardener into a were-type wolf, he decides to use his new-found monster buddy to exact revenge on his detractors as well. And it’s not just mad monster hi-jinx in the swamp for Arachna and Deadly! They pole the pirogue down swamp street to visit Deadly’s Granny who runs a bayou bar and nightclub that serves up Grandpa’s special recipe – a lively libation that has a strange effect on Arachna!
Weird experiments and a mean monster who, some years later, would land a job as the bartender at Miss Kitty’s place in Dodge City (Glenn Strange). It’s all here and Arachna too! THE MAD MONSTER – the latest from Beware Theater on Beta Max TV!!!
