The Alligator People (1959)
-The character of Paul Webster (the Gator Man) was likely the inspiration for the Marvel character, Dr. Curt Conners (the Lizard); who recently appeared in the ‘Amazing Spiderman’ (2012). ‘The Alligator People’ was released several years before comic writer Stan Lee created the character of Dr. Conners; and the two have a near identical origin.

The Crawling Eye – 1958
A series of decapitations on a Swiss mountainside appear to be connected to a mysterious radioactive cloud
Fiend Without a Face – 1958
SEE the terrible consequences of “nuclear radar!” SEE the horrible invisible monsters finally revealed in the awesome climax! SEE Marshall Thompson fight back with a straight face! SEE yet another strong female character reduced to cowering in terror while the men folk take care of things!
Marshall Thompson just the guy we need, he also starred in It terror from beyond Space, another all time favorite of mine.
This is a great sci-fi horror film for the #Halloween season. Crawling brains that leap up to attach themselves to their victim’s neck? Okay!
Unknown World – 1951
To escape imminent nuclear war, a group of scientist take their mole machine to the center of the Earth only to discover a mysterious world full of it’s own dangers. Starring Bruce Kellogg, Marilyn Nash, Jim Bannon and Otto Waldis.
This one would have been better in color, but I still like it.
Wow, what an awesome gem! : ) Thank you for sharing.

Don’t watch alone….very scary movie…
She never listens to him, he says “stay there and you will be safe” and she always moves. this is typical of movies where the man is trying to protect the woman , then she falls down.
Red Planet Mars – 1952
Another film from back in da day. 😉 That details CODED messages being communicated from Mars to Earth, and a conspiracy to try to keep it covered up by a DECEIVER WITH HIS OWN AGENDA!! This also will be discussed in my book CONSPIRACY OF RICHARD HOAGLAND AND THE FACES OF MARS! 😉
Hot damm another peter graves classic.
Nineteen Eighty-Four – 1956
Nineteen Eighty-Four (mostly written 1984) is a 1948 dystopian fiction written by George Orwell (Eric Arthur Blair), about a society ruled by an oligarchical dictatorship. The Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control. Oceania is
ruled by a political party called simply The Party. The individual is always subordinated to the state, and it is in part this philosophy which allows the Party to manipulate and control humanity. In the Ministry of Truth, protagonist
Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible for perpetuating the Party’s propaganda by revising historical records to render the Party omniscient and always correct, yet his meager existence disillusions him to the point of seeking rebellion against Big Brother.
The Last Man on Earth (1964)

Indestructible Man – 1956
Indestructible Man (1956) is an American black-and-white science fiction film, an original screenplay by Vy Russell and Sue Dwiggins for producer-director Jack Pollexfen and starring Lon Chaney, Jr.. It was produced independently, and picked up after completion for distribution in the United States by Allied Artists Pictures Corporation. It is somewhat of a remake of Chaney’s 1941 film, Man Made Monster and owes much to Frankenstein. It was later featured in the fourth season of Mystery Science Theater 3000, alongside chapter two of the Ray “Crash” Corrigan Undersea Kingdom serial.
Even a man, who is pure in heart can become ……………..Lon Chaney!
How many times I watched this film on TWILIGHT MOVIE IN THE 60s haha-Still holds up considering the shoestring budget-Thanks for posting.
Wow, what an ending.
The Day Mars Invaded Earth – 1963
(OK – this is after the 50s but it’s B&W, so it’s almost the same…)
X The Unknown – 1956
Radioactive mud-like creature terrorizes a Scottish village during the 1950’s.
This is a wonderful Sci-Fi from 1956. I do wish it had been a longer series – like the Quatermass series of the same era. There are several scenes and ideas that, given more time to delve into – would have made this a super-great movie of it’s time. The BEST thing is the monster element [like “The Blob”]. We all can see how Cheesy and Hokey the special effects are here. But this is the kind of movie where we don’t really Have to see the Blob. And keeping in mind that CGI Effects were still decades away when they made this. So – The Blob was Great !!.
Cool old movie, to me it feels like the fourth instalment in the Quatermass series? Great quality print too.
Not of This Earth – 1957
This is by far my favorite Roger Corman production. Paul Birch and Beverly Garland are at their best and the horror and unintentional(?) humor are low key and very effective. Thanks for posting! A+.
Hardly no action in this sci-fi,however it was very suspenseful and kept my interest, and that drink that Johnson took….could be the “CURE-ALL” to EVERYTHING NOW in 2014. Very interesting!!
Beyond The Time Barrier – 1960
And from Television…
An episode of Tom Corbett Space Cadet – Monster of Space – Suggested by Hal Whelply
Phantom From 10,000 Legues
An unusual radioactive rock on the sea bottom mutates the ocean life into a horrible monster. When charred, radioactive bodies begin to drift ashore a scientist and government agent investigate the phenomenon, and it’s connection to a local marine biology professor.
I suppose it’s NOT all that bad. The monster suit is quite amusing.
Plan 9 From Outer Space – 1959
“Plan 9 from Outer Space” is a 1959 science fiction film written and directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr. The film features Gregory Walcott, Mona McKinnon, Tor Johnson, Maila “Vampira” Nurmi, and Bela Lugosi.
Did anyone else come here after seeing Ed Wood?
Hmm, so apparently, this is regarded as the worst movie ever made, but I swear I have seen worse movies. I mean, has anyone seen Battlefield Earth by chance???
This is the greatest movie of all time.
What could possibly be worse, you ask?
Did somebody say “Robot Monster”? – 1953
This one makes “Plan 9 From Outer Space” look like Citizen Kane. Shot in four days for peanuts. If you like ’em so-bad-they’re-good then check this out…
This is actually one of my personal favorite movies because it’s so bad it’s AWESOME!
I am totally jazzed that I found this one! One of my favorites when I was a kid –
Radar Men of the Moon – Commando Cody – 1952
Radar Men from the Moon is Republic Pictures’ first Commando Cody 12-chapter movie serial, filmed in 1952, and starring newcomer George Wallace as Cody, Aline Towne as his sidekick Joan Gilbert, and serial veteran Roy Barcroft as the evil Retik, the Ruler of the Moon. The director was Fred C. Brannon, with a screenplay by Ronald Davidson, and special effects by the Lydecker brothers. It was later released by Republic in 1966 as the 100-minute television film Retik the Moon Menace.
The odd naming choice of the serial’s main hero, “Commando Cody,” was possibly an attempt by Republic to make young audiences think they were seeing another adventure of Commander Corry, the hero of the popular ABC TV and radio series Space Patrol (1950–1955). There is, however, no surviving evidence that this was a consideration by anyone at Republic. 
Radar Men from the Moon’s first chapter spawned the period expression “Atomic activity on the Moon, atomic blast on the Earth” (uttered by Henderson when telling scientists of the government’s research findings).
I remember seeing this on TV and saying “Holy cow! That guy is the Lone Ranger!”
Clayton Moore played villain henchmen before the Lone Ranger.
I love these old science fiction serials because it doesn’t have modern CGI or big budget expenses and major stars. You must remember that this was during the cold war era and the conservative 1950s when technology was in its infancy.
Cat Women of the Moon – 1953
I like that the woman brought cigarettes with her on the moon walk.
This was a pretty good cast, too. They must have all fired their agents after this stinkbomb reached the theaters.
I miss the days when gym lockers and desk chairs were instrumental in getting people to the moon.
“What… who… moon rocket is that you?”
The Snow Creature – 1954
The Snow Creature is a 1954 black-and-white sci-fi monster movie produced and directed by W. Lee Wilder, written by Myles Wilder, and starring Paul Langton and Leslie Denison.
Japanese Sherpa’s, non-stop flight from LA to Mumbai in a prop driven plane, looking for new plants above the Alpine zone, a drunken photographer, and a guy with a white carpet glued to him, it’s gotta be good! lol
The snow creature would be Frosty; you can make him yourself in your own front yard. Weather permitting, of course.
The Alligator People
Menace from Outer Space – 1956
Menace from Outer Space is a 1956 science fiction adventure film starring Richard Crane, Scotty Beckett, and Sally Mansfield. The film was created from several episodes of the television show Rocky Jones, Space Ranger.
WHAT IN THE NAME OF SPACE IS this.With Venus,Bobby,and Winky on board,the earth is safe from anyone.right?
The Day the Sky Exploded – 1958
Regarded as the first Italian scifi film, The Day the Sky Exploded tells how scientists discover that a group of meteors are hurtling on a collision course with Earth, causing global scale disasters: tidal waves, wind, fire storms and earthquakes.
The effects at the end are worth the whole movie.
I laugh everytime there’s a crowd scene you can hear the same woman’s shriek…so they must have had the crowd scene noises on a loop.
Space Master X7 – 1958
A space probe returns to Earth covered with a strange fungus. The fungus is accidentally tinged with human blood and is transformed into an ever-growing pile of space rust, dubbed “Blood Rust”. It is up to John Hand and Joe Rattigan to find the one woman who can stop the rust from spreading and taking over the world.
This film was quite good, much better than I expected. The title is misleading. Basically a creature feature, warning the already paranoid 1950’s American public, of the dangers of importing foreign organisms onto U.S soil. But why they gotta pick on Mars- all the the time eludes me. That planet has done NO harm – except provide venue for bad Sci Fi. Flicks and Cheap “Astrologers” telling you your Horoscope. Mexico is probably ten thousand times worse than Mars will ever be !!!
First Spaceship On Venus – 1960 (Just beyond the ’50’s)
In the future year of 1985, the discovery of an alien artifact warrants an exploratory mission to Venus. On the second planet from the sun, the Earthlings make a shocking discovery, and a warning for the future. Originally a German/Polish production, this badly dubbed American version still features startling original visual effects and production design. Once featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Even though loaded with good intentions and having some semblance of being real, sci-fi movies like this don’t age well. The plot is so embedded within the pseudo-science of the time and having little character interest or sense of mystery in the plot that the movie ends up being not much more entertaining than a Jam Handy training video. Unfortunate for how much effort was put into production.
Scifi with a brain. You can feel the Lem all over it, although he disowned it. Truly epic production for its time, and the GDR for that matter. Also, it carries the little known Milestone of featuring the first ever black man in outer space in a scifi movie.
This was an outstanding film for the era, with its combination of imaginative ideas and colorful settings. Something is lost to cgi.
Caltiki – The Immortal Monster – 1960
Each country deserves its own monster.
Mexico has Caltiki.
Japan – Godzilla.
Korea – Yongary.
England – Gorgo.
Denmark – Reptilicus
America – King Kong (or Kim Kardashian)
i saw this as a kid in new york on chiller theater. i’ve been looking for this one for a long time. thanx uploader! ironic how the blob is stopped by cold and caltiki by heat. i LOVE b (actually c or d) horror movies. happy to see so many out there young and old who appreciate bad cinema. love you guys!
Destination space(TV Pilot) – 1959
This pilot was produced by CBS in 1959 but unfortunately it never materialized into a series. Features veteran actor Harry Townes, John Agar and Edward Platt from Get Smart. This film entered the public domain in 1987 from lack of copyright renewal.
the space plane to the wheel space station by simply leaping across a vast stretch of space without any little rocket thrusters to direct them (this bizarre technique was also used in “Assignment Outer Space”). Also, several technical errors like when the moon spaceship’s nuclear reactor is getting ready to explode and we hear a voice saying to pull the control rods out as quick as possible! Lol! Yeah, that will solve the problem…BOOM!
Thanks for the upload. I’d heard of this in the context of its reuse of the “Conquest of Space” effects sequences. Since I’ve always thought of that as a movie with great effects sold out by a horrid script, it’s nice to see them used effectively here.
The Robot Vs. The Aztec Mummy – 1958
The evil Dr. Krupp (Luis Aceves Castañeda), also known as “The Bat”, plots to steal a valuable Aztec treasure from the tomb of a centuries-old living mummy, Popoca (Angel di Stefani). Krupp builds a robot to defeat the mummy. Krupp’s former colleague Dr. Eduardo Almada (Ramón Gay) and associates work to stop the mad scientist from creating his robot.
Only at 3:24 and I’m already impressed – seems like they were going for the Guinness world record for movie script speed-reading!
I guess I should have known better than to expect a fight between a machine and a corpse to be “lively”. I bet this is where they got the idea for those “Robots vs Zombies” books.
Ridiculous, silly and brilliant all at the same time. So bad that it’s very good indeed.
Assignment Outer Space – 1960
Space Men is a 1960 science fiction film starring Rik Van Nutter and directed by Antonio Margheriti. It follows an assignment by Interplanetary News reporter Ray Peterson aboard a space station in the 21st century.
Original titled SPACE MEN but released in the USA as ASSIGNMENT OUTER SPACE, this is a 1960 science fiction film starring Rik Van Nutter (gotta love that name!) and directed by Antonio Margheriti and produced by Samuel Z. Arkoff.
It follows an assignment by Interplanetary News reporter Ray Peterson aboard a space station in the 21st century. Despite problems with the base commander, he is eventually responsible for stopping a space ship which threatens to destroy the Earth.
It was director Antonio Margheriti’s first assignment, and this film showed what quality he could deliver while working with a minuscule budget.
This film is interesting for having a black protagonist, American choreographer, Archie Savage, in a pivotal role. It reminds us of FIRST MEN ON VENUS, the film based on the classic Lem story, its full of library music and science waffle, but a really interesting watch, trying hard to feel ‘factual’
Comments: Took these from two postings because the first one had disabled embedding..
I watched this on my electric brain ……..
I find my self watching this once a year.
A time travel movie, no doubt. It’s from 2016, just a year away………..whewwwww how cool.
Special magnetic boots? Haha they just couldn’t pull off the weightlessness effect so they had to come up with a clever excuse
The Brain Eaters – 1958
Strange things are happening in Riverdale Illinois. A huge seemingly alien structure has been found jutting out of the earth. Sent to investigate the origin of the mysterious object Senator Walter Powers discovers that parasites from the center of the earth have infiltrated the town taking control of the authorities and workers making communication with the outside world impossible and leaving the responsibility of stopping the invasion up to Powers and a small group of free individuals. Not just bad it’s Mondo bad.
Valeu !!! Mais um para minha lista. Esse longa conta com a produção de Roger Corman…
IMO – the movie is worthless.
Space Probe Taurus – 1965
Funny how the 2 astronauts Jump into lifeless,weithless gravity from the alien space craft,as if they were going to dive into a swiming pool,with that aquadiving equipment as well….LOL…if the roquet door was already open,they would already been flotating free inside that opening in sideral space….
This one escaped me. Fifteen years after the far superior Destination Moon, This space adventure was just what matinee’s were all about, Monsters Spacemen, Rockets, and a Meteor attack. along with some smooching that gave you enough time to run to the bathroom and back and not miss anything good.
“Did I miss anything?”
Imagine if you will, that 2001, opened three years later.
Nosferatu – 1922
Originally released in 1922 as Nosferatu, Eine Symphonie Des Grauens, director F.W. Murnau’s chilling and eerie adaption of Stoker’s Dracula is a silent masterpiece of terror which to this day is the most striking and frightening portrayal of the legend.
Attack from Space (TV) – 1965
Benevolent aliens from the planet Emerald send superhero Starman to protect Earth from invasion by an evil alien race called the Spherions. When Starman arrives on Earth, he discovers a conspiracy involving Earth’s top scientists, and he must root out the traitors and also stop the impending alien invasion.
Although the dialog is sometimes hilarious, the voice acting is very good, and the sets and cinematography are surprisingly excellent. Starman’s running quick-change is awesome 🙂 However… I can’t believe those engineers didn’t have a single extra solenoid on hand XD Is this the first appearance of the Death Star?? Favorite line: “I KNOW IT!” To get best enjoyment from this movie, put brain in neutral and let your eyes do most of the work 😉
The high council of the Emerald Planet, shown at the beginning of the movie, have freaked me out for decades.
No human mind was used in the production of this movie.
Silver Needle In The Sky (Rocky Jones, Space Ranger) – 1954
Rocky Jones and his happy-go-lucky crew must escort a group of space ambassadors to an interplanetary peace conference on space station X-07. Miffed that she hasn’t been extended an invitation, wicked Cleolanta of Ophesius plots to abduct the ambassadors and use them to secure the release of two of her men who are being held for trial on Earth.
Gotta smile while watching these. While I took every sci-fi show movie, book, comic etc. very serious 50 years ago, today I jus smile. As they boldly’ looked at the future, they did so without violating the stereo typing of the day.
Atomic Rulers (Starman) – 1965
Super criminals are planning to infiltrate Earth with mass nuclear destruction! Only Starman can defend civilization by thwarting evil!
Though it starts out just about the same as Attack From Space, give it about 3 minutes…
The House On Haunted Hill – 1959A group is invited to stay in a haunted mansion. Anyone who can survive the whole night wins $10,000. Comments:It’s hard to properly judge an older film against what is now produced. Nonetheless, one of the best ‘scary’ movies ever made.Some more #VincentPrice for essential #Halloween viewing. Did Vinnie and #BarbaraSteele ever make a pic together? That would have been the ultimate #horror movie!
