Public domain science-fiction films in the Internet Archive

The Internet Archive is well-known for the Wayback Machine it hosts and they also have a very large selection of public domain media*, relevant to IMDB are the films they have and this is a list designed to bring together the science-fiction ones. I largely made the list for myself, so I could keep a track of some of these early classics as I work through their catalogue (some are classic for being good, others for being so bad they are good and some are just bad) but I'm making it public as I'm sure there are other people out there who'd be interest - if nothing else you can grab the bad ones, some beer, some friends and hold your own MST3K (a number of them have appeared on the show). Although it is worth noting that not all of the lowest rated ones here appear in the Bottom 100 because they don't have the 1,500 votes needed to qualify - so get watching and get voting, the world need to seem some of these gems!!

The better known PD ones are available on some dirt cheap DVDs - I have quite a few on triple feature DVDs selling for £1 and there are 50 film boxsets selling for very little, most of them are worth the 30p/20 cents you'd pay for them, although free is better.

So here you'll find some early classic sci-fi, quite a few movie/TV serials, the excellent Quatermass, a couple of Soviet sci-fi flicks, the first 4 Gamera films and other giant monster movies, as well as some of the worst films ever made, which often makes them must-sees (e.g. Plan 9 From Outer Space). This covers 10+ decades of movie-making, so there must be something in there to catch your fancy.

See also: the equivalent list for horror movies, there is some crossover with science-fiction/horror films so I've tended to include them in both. I've also started a similar list for public domain martial arts films

Further reading: If you want to track down other PD films outside of these genres then a good place to start is Wikipedia's list of public domain films in the US, which also explains the situation. Their page on public domain films has a wider focus. There are numerous sites offering public domain films but I can't really vouch for their checks (just Google them up), however, for horror there is Openflix's sci-fi & fantasy section.

* I can't check the copyright status of each one but they are pretty diligent (although not perhaps as careful as the Gutenberg Project, but they might be being over cautious some times) so there are unlikely to be any legal issues, although you'd want to check the copyright situation in your own country to be sure (America has longer copyright period than somewhere like Australia, for example. So if you go by what is available in the US you should be fine). There are other places online with PD films but IA is the most trustworthy source.

NB: IMDB does include links to the Internet Archive videos on a few entries, but not all. I'll see what I can do about fixing that at some point but feel free to scoop up the links here and add them to the entries.

A post-apocalyptic film starring Sonny Chiba and it set a new record for the most expensive Japanese film made, neither factor helped to stop it bombing at the box office.

Link - it is the original 156 minute version, not the 108 minute butchered film that cut out most of the Japanese scenes. Note: Link goes via a redirect as IMDB's filter screens are censoring the first word of the films title and removing the link, I assume naughty types have been using a misspelling to get around the filter on the f-word. ” - Mighty_Emperor
