So buckle up, folks ...
Yoinked from imdb, wikipedia and 1000misspenthours.com with my own bad movie knowledge mixed in ...
"Seddok, l'erede di Satana, translated as Seddock, Heir of Satan, is a 1963 black-and-white Italian horror/science fiction film directed by Anton Giulio Majano and starring Alberto Lupo and Sergio Fantoni. It was released in the U.S. three years later as Atom Age Vampire despite the fact that it has no actual connection to the atom age, nor are there any vampires anywhere near this piece of poop.
This low-budget Italian schlockfest production tells the tale of a scientist who employs a radical new procedure to restore the beauty of a young stripper who gets disfigured in a car accident. All goes well after the bandages come off but its only a matter of time before the woman begins transforming into an incredibly stupid looking monster.
The original Italian version is fully eighteen minutes longer and may very well be more logical, more sensible, and just generally better. Then again, it might also be that the Italian prints simply feature more strippers with less clothing. Either way, the English-language version of Atom-Age Vampire is a truly ass-tastic film.
Atom-Age Vampire is everything a 1960’s audience would have pictured when they thought about shitty Italian horror movies. The dubbing is haphazard, the English-language dialogue is ridiculous, and the voiceover actors always seem to be overemoting in a slightly different direction from the performers whose voices they replaced. With so much footage missing, it’s impossible to be certain who deserves what share of the blame for the erratic pace and nonsensical editing of the American prints, but it’s equally impossible to ignore those defects when watching the US edit.
It's a fairly decent story of obsession, a cautionary tale of science, and an anti-smoking morality play deep down inside. But on the surface it’s a fairly boring, awfully talkative drive-in flick with bad dialog and some pretty laughable effects."

Whatever I Can Raid From Next Door
So here's the deal with today's movie ...
I bought a calendar in December. American Pop Classic's 2010 Sci-Fi Movie Calendar, twelve months of bad cult movie artwork and, in an awesome twist, four dvds contain the full length movie to go with each month so you can watch each months movie.
My wife said that knowing me I'd watch all the bad movies on the first day of January and ruin the rest of the year. I took that as a personal challenge.
So, if all goes according to plan, I will be splicing together my VERY OWN personal full length version of each months movie and sharing them right here on the last sunday of every month, starting today with Atom Age Vampire.
So MY special version of todays feature presentation features a very special beginning, an old commercial, a movie preview and a small amount of my own little riffs hidden throughout the movie, so be sure to pay good attention!
Oh, and remember ...
ENJOY THE SHOW, Y'ALL!
