Blast From the Past

"True, the special effects are minimal but the movies are better than I remembered. I watched The Crawling Eye for 4 days in a row years ago on the Million Dollar Movie and loved every minute of it (at 9 years old) and I was suprised to find it hadn't become too laughable like so many other Scifi movies from the 50's I've seen. True, the crawling eye itself is not Jurassic Park scarey but My 19 year old daughter even enjoyed it! Invaders from Mars was pretty good too, although the aliens are kinda corney it's still a fun movie to watch. And, the bonus British version was a great addition, in fact I liked the British ending much better!! All in all they're both good to watch on a Saturday night with some popcorn and remember how scared you were the first time you saw them, way back when."
Great copies of great old movies

"I liked both of these movies. This DVD set has excellent quality copies. This is well worth purchasing for old movie buffs"
Terrible Print - Memorable Movie

"This movie (Invaders) had an eerie feel that stayed with me since I was a kid. I watched this DVD with an adult friend who had never seen it before. He had a dream about it the next night! I had my share as a kid too. Have you ever seen the "ant eater" - a little bug that burrows, makes a cone-like hole, then waits for ants to fall in? I wonder if it inspired this film in any way?!
Regrettably, as others have said, the print is just terrible. Constant lines through the film. Hopefully someone will restore the film if this is the best that is out there. Having "The Crawling Eye" packaged with this is an added bonus."
