Long-time horror movie aficionado Matthews explores links between the science fiction films of the 1950s and the concurrent Cold War, and how the relation between public hysteria and cinematic mayhem is still being played out half a century later. The mind controllers, the end of the world, animal and human mutants, and the road to September 11 are among the features.
