NEWEST OLDER TITLES
AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN, THE (1957)
A man exposed to a bomb blast starts growing until he is 50 feet tall, and then starts to tear Las Vegas apart. One of the more popular 50's "giants" movies, much fun.
BEGINNING OF THE END (1957)
Another 50's 'giant bug' flick, this one features giant grasshoppers attacking Chicago! Part of the "special effects" include live grasshoppers crawling over photographs of skyscrapers. Peter Graves stars and gives his usual deadpan delivery, and Peggy Castle is on hand looking very pretty as a reporter trying to get the scoop.
BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE (1958)
A doctor out to save a dying patient ends up at a castle with a mad scientist, who keeps prisoners to experiment on! This one has a "Hammer" feel and a good gothic look. LBX
DEADLY MANTIS, THE (1957)
A giant mantis emerges from the ice and starts to make its way to New York City. Definitely one of the better 'giant bug' pictures of the 50's, the plot moves along nicely and the FX aren't even all that bad (but still cheesy and fun). This one's a winner.
After a nuclear holocaust, only five very different people remain on Earth and have to deal with each other. Pretty decent and rare one that was hardly ever shown on TV back in the day.
INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN, THE (1957)
LAND UNKNOWN, THE (1957)A plane crash lands in Antarctica right in the middle of a prehistoric world! Jungles, dinosaurs and more lurk at every turn in this fun flick, which has some really nice sets and model work. LBX
MOLE PEOPLE, THE (1956)Archaeologists discover an old civilization and all sorts of craziness starts off from there. This one is actually done very well, with good sets and costumes and fun drama.
MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS (1958)A professor on the campus messes with the wrong stuff and becomes a savage beast! Big Man on Campus he definitely is not as he gets a failing grade from everyone as they try to stop his terror!
MUMMY, THE (1959)
Hammer classic with legends Lee and Cushing doing what they do best! Lee plays a great mummy in this gorgeously-filmed tale. LBX
THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1932)
Boris Karloff stars in this gem, about a bunch of travelers who take shelter at an old spooky place during a huge storm. Great atmosphere and early film making.
WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST (1958)
WAR OF THE WORLDS (1953)Who doesn't know this one? Aliens come to Earth is very slick 50's-styled spaceships and start blasting everything in sight. The FX (and sound FX too) were pretty hot stuff for the time and impress even today.
WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE (1951)
EXPERIMENT IN TERROR (1962)
A woman is being used by a tug to rip off the bank where she works or he'll harm her sister. Great suspense flick stars the always gorgeous Lee Remick, Ross Martin and Glenn Ford.
UP IN ARMS (1944)
Danny Kaye and Dinah Shore star in this love triangle comedy.
FLYING TIGERS (1942)John Wayne classic. Capt. Jim Gordon's command of the famed American mercenary fighter group in China is complicated by the recruitment of an old friend who is a reckless hotshot. A good one.
SANDS OF IWO JIMA (1949)Another classic John Wayne flick, this time doing the Iwo Jima battle of WWII. You can't even go wring with The Duke.
