By now, everybody knows that this plays like a 50s low-rent version of Alien (1979). But the fact that it’s a pretty solid little suspense picture is overlooked — or maybe nobody’s paid enough attention to really notice. It’s a long way from The Thing (1951), but I’ve always really enjoyed it.
I’m overjoyed that it’s making its way from beyond space to my Blu-ray player, in its proper framing, thanks to the folks at Olive Films. Can’t wait.
