Science Fiction and Fantasy
Some black and white sci-fi movies have a reputation for featuring monsters that are simply rubbish-looking men in rubber suits. This, however, is quite different. One of the first alien-invasion films, it involves a a genuinely creepy creature, plenty of suspense, and quite a lot of sly wit to ease the tension. The story finds a group of scientists investigating the landing of a UFO at the North Pole. Then, when they duly find something frozen in the ice and accidentally defrost it, the nightmarish creature goes on the rampage. An impressive blend of science fiction, horror and superior characterisation.
Cold war nuclear fears are put into perspective by the dramatic arrival of peaceful alien Klaatu and his silver robot Gort. Essential science fiction.
