fiendwithoutafaceFiend Without a Face is a 1958 independently made British black-and-white science fiction film from Amalgamated Productions, released by MGM, produced by John Croydon and Richard Gordon, and directed by Arthur Crabtree. The film stars Marshall Thompson, Kynaston Reeves, Michael Balfour and Kim Parker.

Fiend Without a Face tells the story of mysterious deaths at the hands of a mentally created invisible life form that feeds on atomic power and then steals human brains and spinal columns to use as bodies in order to multiply its numbers.

The screenplay by Herbert J. Leder was based upon Amelia Reynolds Long‘s 1930 short story “The Thought Monster”, originally published in the March 1930 issue of Weird Tales magazine.
– Via Wikipedia.

A great little film, full of pro-atomic propaganda, chauvinist attitudes, silly monsters, some great anachronistic lines like “You ever think of trying sleep, instead of Benzedrine? You know, you might like it.”

Feel free to throw rotten vegetables at it, in the comments, and enjoy!

  • I really couldn’t stop laughing at some of the horrifically absurd political world-view commentary and the outrageously sexist comments throughout this movie.

  • There’s a new Doctor Who spin off series coming, called “Class”

    Class – Coming on 22nd October

    It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. And this incursion is only the beginning.

    Charlie (Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed) and Tanya (Vivian Oparah), assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly), are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) to guard against the creatures of nightmare that want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.

      More background – these were animal activists protesting against the Dodger Dog…at the Giants’ stadium. Apparently the hot dogs at Dodger Stadium are produced by Hormel and an undercover team discovered terrible conditions for the pigs. So I applaud their cause… How anyone is supposed to understand that in the moment is beyond me. The players were very worried.

  • Ok technically not science Fiction, but here’s my contribution to Syfy Saturday.

    • Carl Sagan was a big Sci-Fi fan, and an author of Science Fiction! πŸ˜€

      EDIT: Oh, the salesman. Well, not so much. πŸ™

      • I would watch Cosmos with Carl Sagan when I was a kid. Such an inspiration.

        Carl Sagan’s wife worked with Seth MacFarlane to make the 2014 Cosmos.

      I’m not a sci-fi gal, but I like science documentaries. that was beautiful!

      • Cosmos.. with Neil Degrasse. Was a huge hit with my family. We would make popcorn to watch it. It was an event in our household. I think I have bought every child the series on DVD.

    Silence, hugs, and applause as Rosetta’s 12-year mission ends with crash landing on cometIt was an unusual grand finale. The crowded European Space Agency (ESA) operations center in Darmstadt, Germany, waited in silence and then the signal from the descending Rosetta mission simply stopped at 1:19 p.m. local time showing that the spacecraft had, presumably, landed on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko some 40 minutes earlier, because of the time the signal takes to reach Earth. Mission controllers hugged each other, there was gentle applause from onlookers, and that was it.

    Thanks for all you did, brave little explorer!

    Anybody read Dark Matter by Black Crouch? He’s the guy who wrote Wayward Pines. I hear it’s good. I’ve requested it from my local library but I’m 64 on the waiting list. πŸ™
