|07.08.06||Internet|| A manned mission to mars in 1973 discovers a huge monster that they stows away on board and starts wreaking havoc during the return flight... 20 years before Ridley Scott's version. Those 20 years were important though because this movie sucks. It's a really really long 69 minutes, awash in bad acting, bad sets, and bad science. I think even in 1958, booby trapping a vent grate on your rocket ship with 8 hand grenades is a bad idea. Maybe that's supposed to be the charm of it... but for this type of thing there's more interesting pictures. I blame Stephen King.|
In the back of his nonfiction book Danse Macabre, he has a list of 100 movies that are really scary. Being the list-fanatic that I am, I went through it and wrote down all of the ones I hadn't seen. This is one of them. As I go through the list it becomes increasingly apparent that, for as good a popular horror writer he is, his taste in movies is godawful. He's got good movies on the list too though, and i'm down to 20 left to be seen!
