20 Million Miles to Earth

Part XI in our Classic Sci-Fi series!

We wrap up our Ray Harryhausen highlights with one of his more interesting creations in his 1950s "Destruction" series. The Ymir holds the distinction of being in the top ten Original Monsters of the era, that is to say it's not simply a dinosaur or giant insect. It manages to mingle great atmosphere and mystery for it's first act, yet as the film goes on it becomes a more predictable and by-the-numbers monster fare. Does it still hold up and, more intriguingly, does it deserve a remake? How far have we come from 20 Million Miles to Earth!

Next Up: THEM!

Leprechaun 4: In Space

Our Annual Misadventure Continues!

Never ask if tings can get worse, the answer is always yes, and they will. For a series that didn't have much creative integrity to begin with they still managed to find yet a deeper bottom to their barrel. As horror franchises go it's almost inevitable that they take their monster into the final frontier. How? Why? These are only some of the questions you'd naturally ask that this film does nothing to answer. Happy St. Patricks Day Jellyheads, it's Leprechaun 4: In Space.

Next Up: Invasion of the Body Snatchers!

The Thing from Another World

Part 7 in our Classic Sci-Fi series!

An action packed arctic adventure awaits! See an extraterrestrial menace frozen in ice, shot, attacked by dogs, cut up with an axe, set on fire, and come back for more! The only thing more fast and furious than the action is the actors dialog. This film is a true precursor to modern lore that still holds up as solidly entertaining on its own. It may be a plant monster, but it isn't Swamp Thing, or Man-Thing, it's The Thing from Another World!

Next week we diverge on our annual hollidy viewing with Leprechaun 4: In Space!

The Creature from the Black Lagoon

Part VI in our Classic Sci-Fi series!

A creature feature featuring a creature, to be sure a freak of nature, who lives in a lagoon not a lake nor a pond nor a creek, sir! That's right, in our 3rd Jack Arnold directed picture in a row we get one of the greatest movie monsters of all time! Until recently you would say there'd never been anything like it - but Guillermo del Toro fixed that - it's The Creature from the Black Lagoon!

*Dave apologizes for the unforseen technical trouble that made his audio sound like dirt. We are working on it.

From the imagination of Ray Bradbury and the director of The Creature from the Black Lagoon comes a tale of cosmic horror, mystery, and anxiety.

Beware the day someone knocks on your door and tells you It Came from Outer Space!
