Monster of the Day #283

This week the “eyes” have it. [Get it?]

  • The Rev.

    I haven’t seen this one, but I recognize the image. Maybe TCM’ll play it sometime.

    ‘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…

    Till we get a new open forum- I.E., spam free.

    Ken is soooo lucky he doesn’t have a dorsal fin!

    (I kid)

    Shark punching is abuse at any depth.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
