Were they cowards in the 50's or what? Ooh, scary!
Ha! That's the whole idea of Cheapnis. The cheaper the better....giant floating brains,rubber hands strangling people,tentacled eyes crwling over mountainsides. How can any of this be bad? Ha! Best of all....."From Hell It Came".....a tree-trunk that has revenge in it's heart! The movie sucks.....but, man,is it funny.
But really,....I guess all the "aliens" coming to get you in the 1950's were allegories for those "alien" Russians (or communists) taking over the world(read that ...."the USA!"). Just like the "Bodysnatchers"....they look like your neighbors,but they have a "hidden agenda"!!!!!!! It's all just maximum paranoia. But it sure made for some great ,laughable movies!
