NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST (1958) - Just saw this one today after buying a Triple Feature Monster Classics from Alpha Video on DVD. This film was produced by Roger Corman (He didn't direct it though) with a typical early Corman monster. The film is great stuff as an astronaut dies after crashing to the earth and he becomes impregnated by an alien creature. The music at the beginning is classic Sci-Fi material. You have to love this one. Check out Andrews Review:

I watched this one last night after a long,tiring day at work. Good thing,too,since I was too tired to run away. What a ridiculous mess! A dead guy has the blood pressure of a living man then comes back to life....seemingly pregnant with what looks like sea monkeys. The alien monster wants to "improve" the human race by killing it off.....logical,I suppose. There's a woman there with pretty big hair who has no obvious function. The scientist gets his head half eaten by the life-saving monster. All in all....3 outta 5.

I think my first exposure to this movie was a scene used in the Whose Line is it Anyway game film dub with Colin providing the voice of the monster.  It was also an MST3K episode where I saw the whole thing for the first time. 

The design of the monster reminds me of a mole mixed with  some sort of bird.

Fun movie.

Those shrimp/trilobite cartoon fetuses are also the groundbreaking forerunners of today's CGI cartoon monsters in terror features like Red Water.   TeddyR

Apparently the same monster costume was also used in Corman's "Teenage Cave Man" in the same year.

Woah!  You had me scared for a second there. 
Don't remember ever seeing this movie unMST-ed.  Even with the riffing that second half dra-aaa-aaggs.  That monster is adorably cheap though.

Roger Corman is so awesome, the guys like pushing 90 and he has a youtube and a Twitter which I'm like 95percent sure is actually him and not just a PR guy.
