The film was not actually shot in wide screen. It was converted to Cinemascope in the final print after having been shot in a standard Academy ratio, much like some films which are "matted" after having been filmed in a normal size. 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).
