On July 3, 1957, seven mafia bosses and their chief lieutenants met at a Las Vegas restaurant to find a peaceful solution to the resent inter-family violence which threatened to damage the business interests of all concerned. Everyone else was there except one man Morris Forelli from New York, but his right hand man George Sims (who killed one of Forelli’s sons) was present.
Forelli’s men rushed in and killed all twelve competitors and the traitor. Their bodies where secretly buried somewhere in the Nevada desert. Soon the dead men passed into legend and to be known as “The Vegas Thirteen”.
Several years’ later U.S.A government tested a pocket Gamma bomb (new tactical weapon) in the desert near the buried remains. When the Gamma radiation met the remains of the bodies the result was patchwork monster that dug its way to the surface with one thing in its mind New York mobster named Forelli.
