‘An Unspeakable Horror… Destroying… Terrifying!’

The Beast with a Million Eyes is a 1955 American science-fiction horror film about an alien able to see through the eyes of the many creatures he takes control of. It was produced and directed by David Kramarsky, although some sources say that it was co-directed by Lou Place and co-produced by Roger Corman and Samuel Z. Arkoff.

The movie was released in 1955 by American Releasing Corporation which later became American International Pictures (AIP).

Plot:
The isolated Kelley family struggle with their small farm in a bleak landscape. A mysterious plane crash happens nearby. Then wild and domesticated animals and finally their handyman turn on the family and attack.

It turns out a space alien (the beast of the title) has taken over the minds of the lesser animals (the 1,000,000 eyes of the title), working its way up to controlling humans as part of a plan to conquer the world…

Reviews:
” …it is scarcely a shock to see that The Beast with a Million Eyes is one of the tackiest, trashiest monster movies ever to be made in Hollywood by somebody other than Ed Wood Jr. But unfortunately, it somehow fails to be tacky or trashy enough to be fun.” 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting

“The nice thing about this film is that it centres on a very ordinary family. Furthermore, the young lovers are here given short shrift; it is the middle-aged married couple upon whom the story focuses, two people who must defeat their adversary with no other weapon available to them but their own human natures; and to make this possible, and credible, the story first ventures into some surprisingly dark territory.” And You Call Yourself a Scientist!

“The film’s ropey execution may generally overwhelm the script’s intelligence and humanity, however, I do prefer a film that tries something and fails to one that doesn’t try anything and still fails, so I can’t help but like The Beast with a Million Eyes more than its actual quality deserves.” The Horror!?
