Battle In Outer Space (1959)

ostensibly a sequel to 1957's Mysterians, this is a cool little flick. actually, it's a pretty big movie with city destruction, spaceship battles and a moon attack. there sure wasn't anything like this made by any US studio. it was only George Pal that would attempt epic scale movies like this over here.

this never showed up in my area at all, and I didn't see it until I was intrigued by clips I saw on the wonderful Godzilla Fantasia tape. interestingly enough, Cinemax aired it several times in the early 90s, so there was an uncut version out there. now we have it on DVD, which is really cool.
