Movie Info

The Trollenberg Terror, authored by Peter Key and directed by Quentin Lawrence, started life on British television as a six-part installment of ITV's Saturday Serial in late 1956 and early 1957. The big-screen version, was adapted by Jimmy Sangster, who compressed most of the best horrific and mystery elements of the original into an under-90-minute vehicle, which Lawrence directed. At a remote Alpine village, mountaineers suddenly start dying, their bodies horribly multilated -- at first, these

Although hampered by a low budget and some laughable model work, The Trollenberg Terror certainly has its moments.

The Crawling Eye (1958) is a bad movie -- but it's the good kind of bad, with not a mean-spirited bone in its gelatinous, pimple-shaped, tentacled, one-eyed body.

Arctic build-up to laughable eye finale is overall time waster

Perhaps "fun kitsch nostalgia" bad - but nowhere near good.

The Crawling Eye may be a good film to see on late night cable TV while you are hoisting a few at the bar.

Audience Reviews for The Crawling Eye (The Trollenberg Terror)

There's not much you can do when crazy eye aliens attack I guess, but the whole story is kinda stupid. It could have been better.

A fun B-movie with a fantastic monster! The idea has been ripped off quite a few times but never really improved. The decapitations are top!

Cheesy and some laughable acting in this 1958 horror movie. I wanted to watch this more for my interest in Janet Munro, who was terrific in the early 60's sci-fi "The day the earth caught fire". She is little more than a pretty face here, with Forrest Tucker shouldering the serious performing. The rest of the cast are lightweight at best. What makes this movie interesting is this plot seems to be the inspiration for the recent movie "the Mist". Not a bad watch..just nothing special either.
