Description by OLDIES.com:
IT! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958, 69 minutes): Too terrifying to even have a name, "It" is a seemingly invincible monster that is hellbent on killing everybody on a mission to Mars. "A Martian by birth and Frankenstein by instinct" (Variety), this life-devouring alien brushes aside bullets and even nuclear blasts - making it the deadliest Cold War-style invader ever to hit the silver screen.
THE MONSTER THAT CHALLENGED THE WORLD: A small earthquake awakens monsters in the depths of the Salton Sea which triggers the giant snail-like creatures to begin to multiply. Now, it is up to the Navy to try to stop these deadly mollusks as they migrate down the California waterways in search of more humans to devour.
IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE: After the first mission to Mars fails, a second ship is sent to pick up the survivors. However, only one man is left, and it appears he murdered the rest of the crew! When the space ship returns to Earth, the crew discovers a most unwelcome stow away--a living, breathing, hunting, killing creature! This low budget favorite has been sited as one of the inspirations for ALIEN (1979).
