All the Crawling Eye Scenes From "THE CRAWLING EYE" (1958) (video)

Forrest Tucker ("F Troop") stars in the British sci-fi thriller "The Crawling Eye", aka "The Trollenberg Terror."

Also appearing are Laurence Payne, Jennifer Jayne, and Janet Munro.

A Swiss mountain's inhabitants are terrorized by giant eye monsters that move within radioactive clouds.

The story was based on a 1956 British TV serial.

It was released in the U.S. on a double bill with another British sci-fi film, "Cosmic Monsters."

The monster SPFX are somewhat low-grade, but a lot of fun.

This movie was a partial inspiration for John Carpenter's "The Fog" (1980).

Stephen King mentions the film in his 1986 horror novel "It."

It was the first movie spoofed on Mystery Science Theater 3000 after its move to Comedy Central in 1989.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!

Delightful. Didn't they just have so long sharp sticks handy?
