Island of Terror (1966)
I have to agree with Brad Kingsley's review wholeheartedly...
I have to agree with Brad Kingsley's review wholeheartedly. I, too, saw I of T in the early 70s when I was a preteen on a Saturday late night show called "Creature Features", hosted by the great Bob Wilkins in northern CA. It scared the daylights of of me. I saw the negative reviews on this film and I am convinced this is just a generational thing. Back in my era, our imaginations would take over very easily and we would allow ourselves to get into the true horror of these types of films. These days, there are great films made, but we are ladled tons of the highest quality special effects so we don't have to even use much of our creative viewing. Back in the campy 60s and 70s, we knew how to get the most out of the least using our brains. This is one fine, classic sci-fi film. Peter Cushing was delightfully serious in this film which assisted it along tremendously; we could believe him, therefore believe the story (sort of, ha ha). I have to say, there was nothing like sitting on the couch with my dad or my brothers and getting terrified like that! I wouldn't trade those memories for the world.
Right on, Brad...I of T did deliver a great late night scare...and if I really use my imagination, still does!
