32 Days of Halloween VI, Movie Night No. 13: The Eye Creatures

Crawling Eye

As we move into Night #13 of 32 Days of Halloween, typically reserved for some kind of sci-fi madness (read: a C-movie of the genre, more than likely), I would like to point out something amusing. Or at least amusing to me. And maybe amusing to the meds, I have no idea. Judge for yourselves. That eye-thing in the art up top? Taken in reality from a poster for The Crawling Eye in 1958. But it still counts because it's the same damn eye-creature and damsel in distress, recycled for 1965. Hey, when you're making cheap movies, stay as green as possible, right?

Speaking of green, this film is famous for being re-titled Attack of the Eye Creatures or Attack of The The Eye Creatures because they just added the "Attack" bit later. The version we have here is "Attack"-free, but the film hasn't improved any. No, seriously, this is only for connoisseurs of the terrible. Although...at least have a taste. Watch the first two minutes, up until the opening credits start to roll. You'll be so glad you did.

There's now a double feature DVD with this and Zontar. Just wow.

Previous entries on this night have included The Navy vs. The Night Monsters, Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, Devil Girl From Mars, Phantom From Space and Them!.
