It’s a free form night on 32 Days of Halloween, so we’re going with the film that inspired a Tom Waits song. It’s The Earth Dies Screaming from 1965. What happens when you get back from your flight and see that everybody’s dropped dead? You go sidestep into what’s essentially a one-act play set in a pub and every so often dodge some of the slowest moving robots in sci-fi history. If there was anything that ever screamed low budget sci-fi, it’s this. It’s Tuesday night cheeseball goodness.
Fox released it as a double feature on DVD (with Chosen Survivors) for $9.
