IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE (1958 U.S.) D: EDWARD L. CAHN W: JEROME BIXBY P: ROBERT E. KENT/EDWARD SMALL
Former western star and gorilla suit icon Ray "Crash" Corrigan ended his career as It!, a blood-drinking martian monster (suit designed by Paul Blaisdell) with clawed hands who hides in the air shafts of a spaceship and pops up to kill the crew. Since discovering it`s influence on the later ALIEN, some genre critics have gone out of their way to lavish praise on IT!. But IT! is no classic, it is however an above-average b/w quickie from Cahn with some good scares and a cool monster. The ultimate late night gem for insomniacs. With Ann Doran, Dabbs Greer, Robert Bice and Pierre Watkin.
