Stack 1, film 2 (same roll!) is now Fiend Without a Face. It's one of my oldest Criterion discs and I'm kind of not sure if I've seen this one or not, but it's only 74 minutes so let's watch and find out.
Science run amok!!! It's been a while since I've seen a good ol' 50s sci fi horror flick. This one was pretty decent. Not amazing or anything - particularly when the scientist gives a solid 6 minutes of exposition explaining exactly what's happening - but still fun. Also of note is how pretty much all the actors are British putting on American accents unless they have to shout. It's weird to hear so many accents bleeding through. I think my favorite actor was the dude working at the nuclear power plant. it's like something straight out of Fallout with the rubber suits and everything, except this guy is so casual about everything, including nuclear meltdown. Love it.
Ok, there's still time. I am now fueled by pizza rolls and coke zero. Let's keep going.
