Joe Dante on

It Conquered the World

Released 1956

One of Roger Corman’s most beloved 1950s drive-in double-bill quickies. A pointy-headed alien from Venus moves into a cave in Bronson Canyon and mind-controls nearby scientists in time-honored fashion. Sci fi stalwarts Peter Graves and Beverly Garland risk their lives for us all.
