Outside of Reel Life, in Real Life, IB MELCHOIR was a decorated World War II hero, a conterintelligence agent, who killed lots of Nazis. Current Grindhouse superstars, John Link, Cameron Scott & Edward X Young salute this great pioneer of our favorite genre, Classic Drive-In Theatre Science-Fiction Monster Movies!
