I wasn't sure this was going to be a "must see" for me, but the atmospheric lighting, outstanding writing and acting had me from the first.
It doesn't hurt that veteran X-Files director was in charge of the pilot.
Steve Railsback (X-Files' Duane Berry) was seen briefly as the haunted husband of the ghost in question. Clever musical references as well as humorous asides, ("Agent Scully. Agent Mulder.") add spice for the viewer, not to mention outstanding "gotcha" moments and spooky special effects.
Not of This Earth (1957)
Featuring the immortal Dick Miller!!
I love this 1957 Roger Corman film. A very unique concept with a somewhat sympathetic villain (a "space vampire") draining the blood of the unwary to send home to his starving planet. The vampire hero strolling about with his briefcase full of medical equipment and his dark sunglasses make for a fascinating visual. Spooky concept, and very atmospheric for a low budget film.
I remember seeing this film and many more fine Corman flicks on the Friday night horror movies (Shockwatch with your host, The Cool Ghoul) as a child, leading me to become a lifelong horror movie buff. Maybe it's nostalgia, but I, like the reviewer above, would love to see a fresh DVD print of this movie. Plus, bonus points for featuring my favorite, Dick Miller.
