Movie Review, ‘The Crawling Eye’

Are you a movie snob? If not, here’s a 1950s monster movie just right for a snowy afternoon.

The Crawling Eye (1958) stars Forrest Tucker and Janet Munro. It’s set in the Swiss Alps and involves–well, I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you.

Unlike most monster movies of this era, The Crawling Eye features very nice cinematography, all-around decent acting, a pace that’s just right, and suspenseful writing. My wife thought it was going to be another one of my stinkers, but had to admit she was wrong. If you’re not looking for Deep Hidden Meanings and feminist angst, and all that other stuff, this film’ll suit you down to the ground.

Show this to your arty friends to annoy them.
