Don't Look Them in the Eyes!

What a great sci-fi gem from director Roger Corman! A man wearing dark glasses goes to a doctor and asks for a blood transfusion. From that point on, suspense builds as we go with Beverly Garland as she assumes the job of a live-in nurse to this "strange" man with the glasses. The man is no man at all, rather an alien presence studying earth and its inhabitants to see if his species can live on earth with human blood as a nourishing factor. The alien man is frightening in manner, abilities, and his coldness to seemingly everything. Paul Birch does an outstanding job playing Mr. Johnson. Garland is superb as the heroine and Jonathan Haze does a fine job as another curious household servant. Corman builds a great deal of suspense from a pretty good script. Highly recommended!
