"Reads like a literary Tales from the Crypt" - RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE

"From the crossroad of inspiration and obsession to the furthest reaches of the Weird Wild West these tales will engage... and terrify."- Harold Sipe, Author of SCREAMLAND

"The wonderful thing about all Larry's work is its "visual" texture. I literally felt like I was "reading" episodes from some classic anthology program like The Twilight Zone or Ray Bradbury's Theatre."- Michael Smith, MIKE'S FILM TALK

"Larry Underwood delivers the goods with this horror story collection! When it comes to giving you chills, the Doctor [Gangrene] is in!"- Dan Johnson, Editor of CEMETERY PLOTS

"Larry Underwood continues to find ways to shock, delight, and ultimately entertain us with his unique and terrifying vision. A classic monster fan if there ever was one, Larry's stories harken back to the days of pulp comics, where evil lurks behind every crooked oak tree. There's a little bit of something for everyone in these collected works, and I highly encourage you to read them all behind the safety of four walls... because you never know what exists just beyond..." - Kurt Larson, STAY COOL GEEK podcast

Vincent Price plays the diabolical Dr. Goldfoot, who (with the help of his assistant Igor, played by Jack Mullaney) creates a troupe of bikini-clad robot femme fatales that he sends into the world to trick the richest men into giving away their fortune.

Fun campy romp with a fantastic theme song by The Supremes.
