It! the Terror from Beyond Space

( 2 )

Overview

A favorite among many fans of 1950s horror and science-fiction movies, It! The Terror From Beyond Space is given the MGM Midnight Movies treatment and boy does it look great. The high-contrast print looks very nice throughout. And though there is still evidence of scratches and lines, just compare the actual movie to the original theatrical trailer and see the difference. It! has been given a full-frame transfer, which is how it was originally seen in theaters anyway. The English mono soundtrack is fine. French ...

It! has been given a full-frame transfer, which is how it was originally seen in theaters anyway. The English mono soundtrack is fine. French and Spanish subtitles are also offered. As stated above, the disc also contains the fabulous original trailer, which includes "subliminal" messages like, "See It!" and "Look Out for It!." Priceless stuff -- and a reminder of how studios would try anything to get people into the theaters. If you haven't seen It! yet, perhaps you should before It! sees you.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
The monster in It! The Terror From Beyond Space was actually former serial king Ray "Crash" Corrigan in his well-worn gorilla suit, slightly altered for the occasion by famed monster maker Paul Blaisdell. And therein lies the rub. We see all too much of It!, to the point, in fact, where a zipper is clearly visible in one shot. By the end of the film, It! is less scary than ludicrous, never mind the good performances from the rest of the small cast. Not that the much-vaunted remake Alien (1979) did all that much better with a larger budget and supposedly more sophisticated special effects. A hand puppet, after all, is still a hand puppet. It!, in contrast, relied on a spaceship typical of the 1950s, a straightforward vessel with a straightforward crew performing in typical Jack Webb "just the facts, ma'am" style. Marshall Thompson, formerly of MGM, makes a stalwart hero, and Shawn Smith, formerly Shirley Patterson, a pleasant enough heroine. But where Sigourney Weaver's Ripley in Alien is decidedly a child of equality between the sexes, the otherwise competent female scientists in It! are compelled to serve coffee for their male colleagues.

    Beyond Its Space and Time

    It was the summer of 1959. Every Wednesday night, the local drive-in charged $1.00 per carload for a double-feature of horror films. None of those dozens of old movies stand out in my mind so much as 'It! The Terror From Beyond Space'. And I was not the only one so impacted -- for those of us crowded into the back seat of Mom's Studebaker that night, it became the film by which we judged all others of that genre from then on. I was ecstatic when I found it available on VHS years ago -- and not one bit disappointed, either. I hadn't been mistaken; I really had remembered the picture hanging in the office of the space agency director. Just as with several other items unique to the film (women scientists - 2 of them!), I had never even forgotten the last line in the movie. And seeing it again after 40+ years still was (I feel silly admitting this) a bit scary. Although a black-and-white film, it managed to convey the same thrills as the special-effects-assisted 'Aliens', and that says some very impressive things about the creative artistry of the folks who made 'It! The Terror From Beyond Space'. I'm going to go and watch it again right now!...

    What ''IT'' is!!

    A recent issue of SCARY MONSTERS Magazine, also available at Barnes & Noble, gives you more than you need to know about this classic, that scared the pants off this eight year old and that could conceivably do the same again - under the right conditions!
