When Rheinhart gets off the train, you can see that its very cold because his breath comes out as condensation.
However, there are people sitting outside drinking at the the local pub, the grocer has fruits and vegetables outside on a stand, and the bicycle repairmen is working outside in shirtsleeves. None of this would have happened in the weather as shown. 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).
