I'll never forget seeing this one, with my mom, at the Benson Theater (86th Street, Brooklyn). It was a hot summer evening, the air-conditioning was busted, and they kept the doors open to the street in a futile attempt to cool the theater. I pity the poor bastard running the projector that night. Every so often the elevated train would rumble past. We didn't care. We loved the movie. One of Vincent Price's best. Here's the pressbook.
Issue 14 of The Monster Times is the last one to be published bi-weekly (although it actually hit the newsstands a week later than scheduled). Starting with issue 15, TMT would hit the newsstands monthly, then eventually go bi-monthly, then eventually go whenever, until its final 48th issue. In this issue, Godzilla becomes "the Rona Barrett of Monsterdom," The Wolf Man receives the "complete filmbook" treatment, and Peter Cushing talks about Tales From the Crypt. The Phantom gets beat up as "a mercenary running-dog lackey with license to kill" by one Ms. M. J. Blowemup Weatherperson, and The Dead Are Alive and Frogs get roasted.
One of my favorites. The kicker ending was quite a shock to my young mind in the 1960s. Jack Pierce did the mutant makeup and Edgar G. Ulmer directed. Budget movie, but the storyline is still very interesting. Here's the pressbook.
Annoying fungi wreak havoc in outer space. Of course, the heroine on the cover of this pressbook seems to be enjoying the terror a little too much. Whoever did the poster art must have thought this was a musical. And remember, glamour is still important in outer space.
