The opening credits of Not of this Earth, as well as the rest of the movie is heavily padded with sample clips from Battle Beyond the Stars, Battle Beyond the Sun (Nebo zovyot), Forbidden World, Galaxy of Terror, and Humanoids from the Deep, as well as a couple others I didn't recognize (not to mention, I lost count at a certain point).

I'm gonna pull this one out & re-watch it to see if I can recognize any others, & then post it to the trivia or movie connections section.

It's a pretty cool montage of some of corman's best.

Normal is what people are until you get to know them

Update: Just finished re-watching. It borrows from seven other films.
Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)
Forbidden World (1982)
Galaxy of Terror (1981)
Hollywood Boulevard (1976)
Humanoids from the Deep (1980)
Nebo zovyot (1960)
Piranha (1978)

Hey, during the opening credits there are brief flashes of the castle from The Terror (1963), so that brings the grand total to EIGHT films! This movie has some of the most entertaining opening credits ever, don't ya think?
