Hey hey Space-cadets!
Butch R. Cleaver is back with a “disarming” entry into the torrid soup that b-sci-fi! This week we’re visiting with a greaser and his hot-rod pals, the Skipper from Gilligan’s Island, the former 50 foot woman and an astronaut that’s just gone all to pieces! It’s the 1963 sci-fi schlock-fest “The Crawling Hand“! An astronaut sends a horrifying message back to Earth just before his capsule hits the atmosphere and explodes… two young lovers stumble on to the wreckage and a severed arm to boot! The boy has a strange compulsion to retrieve the arm and bring it home with him…and becomes possessed with the insatiable urge to kill kill kill!!!!
A space virus? A new lifeform? What terrors from beyond compel the unfortunate few who come in contact with “The Crawling Hand“???

You’ll find these episodes a ton more reviews from the past…everything from sci-fi to horror to exploitation! More crazy trailers, more stupifying commercials, even some music videos…
