The fifteenth movie night of 32 Days of Halloween has dealt in the past with the sprawling mayhem of the “atomic monsters” subgenre. We’re going with Attack of the Crab Monsters, directed by Roger Corman and released in 1957. What happens when one expedition you’ve sent out to research the after effects of atomic testing in the Pacific goes missing? You send another one, of course! Because when you buy expeditions in bulk, it’s cheaper that way.
And is it just me or does the opening scrawl read exactly like the opening briefing you would get in a video game? Corman was a visionary! Enjoy!
It’s available as part of a Corman triple feature on DVD.
