One of the best of the medium-budgeted science fiction flicks of the 1950s, It! The Terror from Beyond Space is set in "the future" (1973, to be exact). An rescue ship travels out to Mars to retrieve the only survivor of a space probe that has experienced some sort of cataclysm. That survivor, Col Ed Carruthers (Marshall Thompson) is accused of murdering his fellow crewmen. But Ed claims that the killer was a Martian monster, and hopes to prove his assertions by signing up for a second journey

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
It's a wonderful little horror thriller that will whet the appetites of fans that love claustrophobic genre pictures.
Unintentionally funny low-budget 'Fifties horror effort. ("Mars is almost as big as Texas," one character thoughtfully muses at a point. "Maybe it's got monsters.")
Combination science fiction film and thriller is an early look at space travel on film.
In tone, it's really the predecessor of James Cameron's gung-ho sequel Aliens.
One of the best sci-fi flicks of the '50s; the basis for 'Alien.'
An excellent claustrophobic alien tale that debatably inspired "Alien"
A towering classic of 1950s sci-fi horror cheese. It's more fun, more memorable and certainly more influential than the handful of big-budget sci-fi movies of the era.
