I haven’t seen this one, but I recognize the image. Maybe TCM’ll play it sometime. Flangepart ‘I spy, with my little eye, some human beings I’m about to fry…’ Wonder if a remake will show up on Sy-Fy? Flangepart This is SO the place for this… http://www.orau.org/ptp/collection/atomictoys/atomictoys.htm Till we get a new open forum- I.E., spam free. roger h two words: lemon juice John Campbell Ken is soooo lucky he doesn’t have a dorsal fin! (I kid) Shark punching is abuse at any depth. zombiewhacker At first I thought this was the monster from that episode of Lost in Space, but guess not, huh? Which movie is it, then? Rock Baker The film was titled Atomic Submarine, and had a simply amazing cast! The Lost Continent of sea adventure movies! This thing is the alien pilot of an underwater flying saucer the crew of the titular sub call ‘Cyclops.’ “That’s a face?” Rock Baker Check out this cast: Arthur Franz, Dick Foran, Tom Conway, Bob Steele, Joi Lansing, Sid Melton, Brett Halsey! Sadly, ATOMIC SUBMARINE is pretty obscure. I’d been trying to see it since I was but a wee lad, and only got to add it to my library a couple of years ago. Ericb That looks a lot like Roger Corman’s first monster in “Monster from the Ocean Floor”. Gamera Sounds like a pretty cool movie. And thanks for the link Flangepart, I wish I could have had one of those cool Atomic Energy Labs. Though I guess I shouldn’t complain since at least I played with Lawn Darts and rode my bike without a helmet. And still I turned out mostly ok. Ken Begg Atomic Submarine, however, is available on a typical fab Criterion DVD collection entitled Monsters and Madmen, offering AS, Corridors of Blood (Karloff and Christopher Lee), Haunted Strangler (Karloff) and the fun Brit sci-fier First Man Into Space. The set is kind of pricey, but your local library could probably ILL it for you. Sandy Petersen You can readily get Atomic Submarine on the Monsters and Madmen Criterion collection. It also includes Haunted Strangler, Corridors of Blood, and First Man into Space. I enjoyed the colleciton. It appears to currently be selling for $72 bucks which is a rip-off, because I originally bought it for like $19 Rock Baker Its on the “one of these days….” list. I need to see First Man Into Space anyway. BeckoningChasm I hope we get to visit Trollenberg this week! The Rev. Looks like your wish is granted.
