One of my top sci fi movies is Battle in Outer Space. I’ve seen many try and make a list of sci fi movies, but most seem to totally ignore the lesser knowns, or those that were made several years ago, or those that are simply hard to categorize.
We all know about Aliens — but what about all those films that helped set the stage for these movies, and inspired those who made them?
Battle in Outer Space is a showcase of model making, vehicle design, and the pre-CGI optical photo plate effects are truly amazing for 1959.
The sound effects on the cave aliens might have started life as dog squeaker toys, but that doesn’t mean the film won’t capture you with its charm.
