It! Terror From Beyond Space (1958)


Alleged original version of Alien follows Col. Carruthers who is being escored from his base on Mars to be prosecuted on Earth for the murders of his fellow astronauts. However, Carruthers says that an alien killed them. It isn’t before long till the alien becomes loose on the rocket and begins killing the crewman. How do you stop something hat is obviously much bigger and stronger than you? Can they find a way to stop it? Even though the film was made and produced in the 50s, it’s peppered with beautiful haunting imagery that enhances its dark, gloomy disposition. It’s a fantastic movie to come out of the age of schlock sci-fi.
