What I Think Of: I Married a Monster From Outer Space (1958)

Is this movie as cheesy as the photo to your left? Yeah, perhaps even cheesier. I mean the monster costume designs are, well, they look like poorly made trash bags. But that doesn't mean because it looks cheap, that its a poorly made movie. Think of this movie (with possibly one of the worst titles ever) as a more low budget and lesser known Invasion of the Body Snatchers. There are some pretty intense moments, and the whole idea that you've been sleeping with some copy of your husband for over a year (that in truth looks like the monster in the picture!!) is terrifying. Still, while the effects were bad and the concept cheap, the acting was surprisingly good. So yeah, just some cheap, fun, b-grade sci-fi goodness. Seriously this movie looks like it was made for the price of a Happy Meal.
