Makes a tad more sense than a lot of Corman's Sci-Fi Flicks, 24 December 2006
Author: ( from Pennsylvania, United States

For a Roger Corman movie, Night of the Blood Beast had somewhat higher production values than most. Maybe that was because Corman was just Executive Producer on this one. The special effects were actually pretty good, and the monster costume wasn't all that bad. The story also seemed a bit more believable than a lot of his oeuvre. The acting was fairly good for a genre pic, and the cast was very believable.

The only thing that really annoyed me about the movie was a number of scenes in which the characters were able to get a blood pressure reading off of a presumed-dead body (with no heartbeat) ... those elicited a definite groan from me.

This was one of about ten sci-fi movies from the fifties that I hadn't seen until it showed up in the "Tales of Terror" boxed set from Mill Creek Entertainment.

If you're a fan of the genre, definitely give it a look if you get the chance ... its no Quatermass, but its also no UFO: Target Earth, either.
