Viewing Notes

Driving home from movie night I listened to the latest Cinema Diabolica podcast about Mario Bava. This inspired me to watch his excellent Planet of the Vampires (1965). This is ALIEN before there was ALIEN. The guys on Cinema Diabolica touched on it and I’d go into it here but I’d rather you see for yourself (if you haven’t already). Very good 60s sci-fi horror.
