Philip J. Riley - Fim Historian - RIP
Film Historian Philip J. Riley, who produced the book, "THE RAKASHI FILE:FEAR NO EVIL", passed away on June 19, 2016. He was a respected  historian-publishing several books for BearManor Media on classic and unproduced horror/fantasy films. Also, working with Richard A. Ekstedt, was co-creator of the PHILIP J. RILEY NIGHTMARE SERIES-which released several deleted film tie-in novels that included the first ever-and first U.S. printing-of "THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN" (originally only published in the U.K. in 1958). A very funny fellow who I got to know, he will be missed and still is at this writing!

Sam Slade didn't believe in Gorgo until he saw the monster's hideous scaly face, its slimy green talons and the massive mouth that could swallow a killer whale.

If this was not enough he was to have even bigger problems in the future.

The story mixes familiarity with a couple of neat plot twists; the special effects  are ambitious and oftentimes stunning; and the use of a man in a rubber dinosaur suit, a technique usually met with derision, is undoubtedly one of the best on record.

But perhaps the reason that supersedes them all is that Gorgo is the rare city-stomping monster spectacle with heart. Released by MGM in 1961, Gorgo is that oft-told cinematic fable of the giant beast that threatens humanity.

Commentary and "About the Author" Henry Slesar by Randall D. Larson

The clouds of yellow dust rolled and swirled and whistled in agonizing motion, and their sound obscured the needle-thin cries of men in anguish. The pain had come upon them suddenly, pain that gripped their chests like the giant talons of some rapacious bird, pain that sent them scurrying, reeling, stumbling towards the silvery object that stood half-buried in the volatile sands. Some were to make the ship in time; others were to die later. One was to see the dust-shrouded planet transplanted to the world of his birth, twenty million miles away...
