Pretty Damn Scary for a Kid on TV in the 60's -- Kind of a Laugh Later On
I mean, here is a movie that opens with mountain climbers and one disappears into a cloud above them and...his headless body tumbles down out of the cloud still dangling on a rope.
And I think the Crawling Eye mind controls people and turns them murderous...or do I have the wrong movie?
And the cloud keeps marching down the mountain, filled with head-chopping crawling eyes and -- its rather like Carpenter's The Fog of 1980.
And then the crawling eyes -- one of them? two? three? -- are fully visible with their detached eyes and their tentacles grabbing hold of a scientific compound and attacking.
I thought that was a spectacular finale -- great effects, terrifying -- and the good guys melted those eyes down good.
Then a number of years later, I saw it again.
Talk about child development. Seriously, it took a decade or so to truly SEE how bad those crawling eyes looked(rather like eggs with yolks and seaweed hanging from them) the scientific compound a little model, the monster melting like eggs on the sidewalk.
But the FIRST time around...you see that beheaded mountain climber, its nightmare time.
And good camp ever after.
