In 1965 American International Pictures distributed this film on a double bill with the Italian sci-fi film Planet of the Vampires (1965), which was dubbed in English and retitled "Planet of the Vampires". See more »
A creakily atmospheric chiller from the American International stable, 1965's Die, Monster, Die! is a loose adaptation of HP Lovecraft's The Colours Out Of Space and boasts a great exploitation title and Boris Karloff, although it's now more likely to offer fun than frights.
A young heroic type arrives in a remote village looking for his fiancé but finds her family shunned by the hostile locals, and with good reason her mad scientist father Nahum Witley (Karloff) has recovered a strange meteorite which turns plants into giants and several members of his household into grotesquely scarred mutants.
Clunky acting and a faintly ludicrous script aside, there's a lot to enjoy, from the gloomy sets and portentous dialogue to one of wheelchair-bound Karloff's last meaty roles and a delicious mood of corruption well sustained by director Daniel Haller (formerly art director on some of AI's finest Vincent Price vehicles).
