The Crawling Eye
is definitely a flawed movie but I enjoy the hell out of it. I was really happy to see that on TV again the other night, even if I ended up falling asleep well before the monsters show up.
: Both Rodan
and The Crawling Eye
were DCA releases, with the latter's poster boasting "A DCA release: the company that brought you 'Rodan!'" Interesting that King references both in the same book.
I've got The Crawling Eye
on DVD from a series called The Wade Williams Collection
. This release is the unedited European version and is called The Trollenberg Terror
. Very good film and I loved
the aliens and their design. A very atmospheric film.
I hope to get a similar film someday from the Criterion Collection called Fiend Without a Face
. It's mentioned in the liner notes of The Trollenberg Terror
and it sounds intriguing.
