Gorgo is out on DVD, unfortunetly the picture quality it pretty poor, dark and very grainy, it look like it was transfer from a VHS.

Judging from the other titles on the list, no, those aren't the ones.

GORGO has been out for a long time from VCI, but as stated earlier it isn't the greatest disc. Still, it's cheap and not that bad.

Some of the other 50s titles you mentioned are out in R2 as part of the Arkoff Collection. Check out amazon UK and you can easily order them if you have a region free player.

I was a Teenage Werewolf & I was a Teenage Frankenstein are tied up in legal hell. It Conquered the World may be in the same boat, I'm not sure.

How to make a Monster and Earth Vs. the Spider are available in R2 discs from England, if you have a code-free player.

Day of the Triffids is available now on DVD from an outfit calling itself Allied Artists Home Video, but the quality is crap. Looks like it was transferred from VHS.

Gorgo is available in a so-so "Special Edition" from VCI, and on a double-bill with Phantom from 10,000 Leagues from another company.

Tarantula is one of many titles Universal is holding in its vaults. No word yet on when it may finally emerge.

Son of Kong was rumored as possible "bonus material" for the 2-disc King Kong SE from Warner coming next year.

Can't tell you anything about Varan the Unbelievable.

Thanks everybody. Doesn't look to promising then.

I really want all these titles, and looking for the originals, not any remakes.

It's actually a pretty good Toho flick directed by Honda. There are two versions naturally, both are ok. Love the effects though.
