Here's a movie who lives up to and surpasses it's trailer easily. This is the shorter trailer, which doesn't show everything it thinks you need to know, but it would have worked on me. I couldn't wait to see this movie the first time it aired on my local station at some ungodly hour and ever knowing the story from Movie Monsters #3 I still loved it.
The first time I saw it I didn't realize just what an influence it was on Star Trek, but it sure is obvious now. Everything about this movie works, it's just that amazingly awesome.
