Andrew: I love this movie and I loved your review. This is one film that I have been saving up to review, I like it so much. The Criterion Edition of this film is a pure pleasure with the producer, Richard Gordon, talking with Tom Weaver - one of those rare instances where a commentary track really adds something special. And who, I ask you, can resist the special effects in this film?

PS, your "visual verification" is one of the most interesting I have ever encountered. The hyrogliphics look like some sort of symbol message out of The Blair Witch Project. "Listen to the letters?" Why does that intimidate me so? Maybe next time I'll have the balls. OK, I've typed them in. Here goes . . . . .-- Mykal
Thank you, and this movie is one of my favorite classics. It has all the trappings of a 50's monster movie, and the end is surprisingly gory and filled with action. The Criterion DVD was a big surprise, and I purchased it immediately when it came out a few years back.
The visual verification CAPTCHA is an unfortunate step, but it is the only way to allow guest posting and to prevent the system being overrun by spambots.
