Classic Sci-Fi Trailers, Vol. 2 (Sinister Cinema). [Category: Commercial]

More science fiction movie trailers, again mostly from the 50s, and again, lots of fun. This tape gets 5 extra points for throwing in some drive-in snack bar promos and ephemera.


  • Gimmick Alert! Richard Carlson tells us all about 3-D in the trailer for It Came from Outer Space.
  • Certain scenes in Robot Monster "will terrify you with their brutal reality!" See the movie to find out why we're all snickering.
  • You too will be petrified by The Man Who Turned to Stone!
  • The Monster of Piedras Blancas is "a claw-fingered, scaly-skinned, half- human crustacean!" The movie itself is "the screen's Monsterama of incredible sights and frights!" It was named "the most brain-paralyzing shock story of them all!" Just who writes this stuff, anyway?
  • The severed head in The Brain That Wouldn't Die was "a woman defying society's conventions!"
  • Beyond the Time Barrier takes place exactly "64 years into the terrifying future!"
  • Msties, take note: contains the trailers for Robot Monster, Terror from the Year 5000, Night of the Blood Beast, The Brain That Wouldn't Die, and The Leech Woman.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
