the original X-men X-man

The Man From Planet X is another filme that scared/scarred the crap out of me when I was a kid.

Mind you, I only saw this film on television, never in a movie theater, so, in my humble opinion, the scary parts had to be really scary in order to be as effective viewing it on a 10-inch television screen in the comfort and safety of my parent's living room vs. the big screen in a dark movie theater.

The real scary elements of this film:

  • Lots of fog just like a gothic monster flick.
  • Lots of suspense waiting for The Man to show up.
  • The Man finally shows up in spectacular fashion.

Recently, I viewed this film again and it still holds up. I recommend it.
