Beware the RAT, BAT, SPIDER and er um, CRAB!(?)

One of the most memorable creations in movie sci fi history, has to be the one featured on this 1960 poster. A really fun little film. Think how cool it would be, if these types of creatures really were wandering around the Angry Red Planet, MARS.

..and don't forget the giant amoeba that eats the most obnoxious human character in the picture!

Wow! Another eye-popping poster! This movie really was the ultimate for a young monster fan's imagination. Who could ever forget the Bat-Rat-Spider-Crab (or what ever order they go in) and yes, that ameoba monster with the revolving eye! The poster really captures the feel of it. And then there's the great radio actors in the cast - how can you top those authorative voices? Especially Gerald Mohr (that green stuff on his arm at the beginning really freaked me out when I was a kid.)
