At about 1:00:00, Lee's wife confronts him. She states that he is blind of his actions. He is too attached to this power he is gaining. I think I know what she is really doing and why taking this position. She is doing an intervention. She is trying to get him in to a help group -- AA, Aliens Anonymous. I think she did this because of the help that she got in AlAnon, the group developed to help friends and family members of those addicted to aliens. They helped her understand that she has to make a stand and do what she can to get him to an AA meeting so he can face his addiction. Maybe he did make a meeting. Maybe they helped him learn, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature. And because of it, the greatest in the universe......

This movie would have been watchable, even without the gang, if it werent for the HORRIBLE effects of the Main monster baddy and his flying..uh..cave bats? Most of the movies are really dry, tedious and/or painful to watch but this one holds its own (relatively that is) and is now among one of my favorites. When the letter asks why Joel looks so sleepy when he talks cracked me up, i always thought Joel looked SEVERELY uncomfortable on camera and wondered if he ever smoked a little something to calm his nerves.

That final monologue at the end of the film was one of the truest and greatest things I have ever heard. No wonder they played it for us in full like 4 times.

Don't know about Crazy Days. But, Beechwood Market is up in the Hollywood Hills. It was still there about 10 years ago. My wife took a picture of me standing in front of it, and we went inside and bought a Coke!

Out of curiosity I looked up when Invasion of the Body Snatchers came out (since this film was obviously the Corman quickie version of that), and Invasion was released only *five* months earlier. Quick indeed!

You know, for as often as they'd feature Corman as one of the kings of bad cinema, I wonder what the guys actually thought of his genuinely great horror comedies like Little Shop of Horrors and Bucket of Blood.

Love the respect they showed at the end to Peter Graves. He always made any movie he was in at least tolerable just from his stellar acting presence. Not a big fan of Lee Van Cleef, but I do enjoy his acting as well. Too bad his career didn't blossom more than it did. All in all, not a bad movie really. Oh, and always great to see the beautiful Beverly Garland at work.

Crow is so funny in Winter Sports Cavalcade when his hockey mask head-dress gets knocks off which makes it so he can't see when he gets his hat put back on and then a piece of 'Snapped Cat' lands on its bill....then he peeks over the desk at the very end after he faints away.

ramchips - Good thing: The Cave Bats! I actually got a creepy feeling when they showed that one in the trees thinking and waiting to strike. Bad thing: 'It'. So lame and too unbelievable, especially when it inches up to Bazooka Joe who has to stand there and pretend he can't escape.

Reportedly Paul Blaisdell, who designed and built the monster, was actually hurt and pissed off when, at the first screening, the alien was finally revealed and the whole audience burst into derisive laughter. Apparently up until that moment he was convinced his traffic cone with lobster claws creation was frightening.

Apparently, Beverley Garland, who played Claire Anderson commented "THAT conquered the world? when she saw the creature to be used in the movie, and kicked it over! This movie was remade in 1966 with the title Zontar, the Thing from Venus, which I saw a couple of years ago, it was truly awful!

The end segment was so cute, when Joel was feeding the bots and watching without comment. Then I cracked up when the Mads were watching it as well. And I continued cracking up when they played it instead of the end theme. AND the stinger.
