The Beast With a Million Eyes Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Notable only for the presence of former silent film great [[Performer~P14466~Chester Conklin~chesterconklin]], this silly sci-fi flick from legendary producer [[Performer~P85920~Roger Corman~rogercorman]] is a murky blend of alien-invasion fare such as [[Feature~V25499~It Came from Outer Space~itcamefromouterspace]] and sundry "animals-run-amok" movies. When an invading alien (possessing far less than a million visual organs) touches down in a desert township outside of Indio, California (in a spacecraft that resembles a kitchen appliance), it begins its plan of world domination by controlling the minds of various animals, which subsequently attack the townspeople. The animal attacks are numerous but dull -- except for a scene of homicidal birds that beat [[Performer~P94487~Alfred Hitchcock~alfredhitchcock]]'s [[Feature~V5727~The Birds~thebirds]] by a full five years (not that Hitch had cause for alarm). ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
