It's an overlooked film



The first time I saw this film was on some Late,Late Movie Show . . . and I was intrigued by it. I enjoyed the rapping on the windows ... the claws on the shoulders and the vulture's talons in his shoes. "I'm suffering from a very bad fall". "I find science facinating".

I would very much like to see it. Is there any way to see it in this day and age?

I think you might find it new or used at amazon.com on vhs, I have not seen it playing on tv for years. I recorded it off tv so I have a slightly edited version on tape.

I went to see it in the theatre when it first came out. But I never got to see the whole thing, because the claws were freaking out my younger brother too much, and we had to get up and leave the theatre and go home.

As a child, I loved scary movies. This one was just too much for my brother, probably because we saw it on a double bill with "The Deadly Bees", and that freaked him out too. A dog got killed by the bees, and that really bothered him. Then when the vulture started grabbing people and carrying them into the sky, that was it for him.

I think this movie is on YouTube, so I will look there. Maybe I can burn it to a dvd and watch it on my TV.

Hi,one can never be too rich or have too many friends. I saw it on tv in color and black and white in theater when I was young. I freaked at scene where schoolteacher was cutting across cemetary and saw grave open and there was an insane laughing as something flew over her head. Wow. Wish this show was on dvd

Hi, I too would like if it(The Vulture) was put out on dvd ... maybe someday. I would like to see it whole and un-edited.

Overlooked or not, I watched it on tv when I was a child (many years ago) and I got so impressed that, for days, every time I went outdoors, I looked up at the sky afraid that the giant vulture would appear and take me.

I know about this movie only because I collect old TV broadcasts and one of the things I got was a circa 1980 recording of The Vulture on a local channel creature feature. Not bad.

The focus of real greed lies with unrestrained Government.

Overlooked or not, its still on par with "The Giant Claw" for absurdity and awfulness.

Nothing is more beautiful than nothing.

Paramount owns the rights to it, so it may NEVER see the light of day on legit DVD, unless they start some kind of MOD Program. I currently own a nice bootleg of it.
