Description by OLDIES.com:
The Monster that Challenged the World (1957, 84 minutes):
Creeping dread! Crawling terror! Oozing Fear! The local beaches go from fun-filled swim-fest to horrifying slugfest when a horde of gargantuan vampire snails ooze their way into the water supply - and threaten to suck the life out of mankind! Packed with nerve-jangling "suspense and excitement" (Variety
), this slimy sci-fi thriller delivers "superior monster action" (VideoHound's Movie Guide
) that'll pull the most hardened sci-fi cynic right out of his shell!
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.
Huge creatures threaten the future of the human race in this monstrous double-feature.
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).
