sci-fi

Fritz Lang's silent sci-fi classic. NOTE: this was transferred from a vhs copy. The print that this was taken from was well-worn and quite faded in many scenes. Shows the importance of film preservation.

From IMDB: An intelligence agent discovers a Nazi plot to revive the Third Reich by using clones.

From IMDb: Atomic scientist Doug Martin is missing after his plane crashes on a reconnaissance mission after a nuclear test. Miraculously appearing unhurt at the base later, he is given sodium amytal to reveal what happened, but authorities are skeptical of his story that he was captured by aliens determined to conquer the Earth with giant monsters and insects. Martin vows to use existing technology to destroy them. Stars: Peter Graves with an uncredited appearance by Coleman Francis!

From IMDb: In the 21st century Ray Peterson, reporter for the Interplanetary News, is assigned to write a story aboard a space station. Tension mounts between Peterson and the station commander, who believes he is in the way, but has orders to leave him alone. Errant spaceship Alpha Two enters the solar system and its photon generators are radiating enough heat to destroy Earth as it approaches. It falls to Peterson to try to figure out a way to enter the spaceship, disarm the generators, and escape before suffocating.

Yet another version of this sci-fi/horror "classic." After being decapitated in a car crash, "Jan in the Pan" needs a new body, and deranged surgeon/fiancee Herb Evers begins stalking strippers with the hope of performing a full-body transplant and eventually getting the best of both worlds. Naturally, things do not go quite as planned.

I believe this is a clearer/sharper transfer of "Brain" than many (most?) of the others available in the Archive. Run time is 82 minutes, so all of the shocking gore (dismemberment, neck chewing) is intact.

This movie is based on the movie serial. From IMDb: Cowboy singer Gene Autry stumbles upon a civilization buried beneath his own Radio Ranch. The Muranians have developed technology and weaponry such as television and ray guns. Their rich supply of radium draws unscrupulous speculators from the surface.
