The Film Detective (TFD) from Cinedigm, the classic film restoration and streaming company, will release Kenneth G. Crane’s classic “B” movie green hell monster (1957) on Blu-ray and special edition DVD March 8.

From the era of giant insects and atomic tests comes this low budget creature feature on mutant wasps. When scientists attempt to understand the effects of radiation on earth creatures, the result takes them to a region of Africa known as “Green Hell”, where wasps have turned into monsters.

Jim Davis, who went on to star in the TV series “Dallas,” plays Dr. Quent Brady, the scientist who started the whole mess. The film also stars Vladimir Sokoloff (The life of Emile Zola, Assignment to Moscow) like the skeptics Dr. Lorentz and Joel Fluellen (grape in the sun) as Arobi, who warns Brady to beware of the African location. green hell monster was co-written by Louis Vittes, author of the classic I married a monster from outer space.
