The Comic Critic Reviews The Earth Dies Screaming and The Return of Stickman #842

I made several mistakes about The Earth Dies Screaming; the worst was that I thought it came out in 1957. I thought it might have beat “Plan Nine from Outer Space” as the first to have alien-controlled dead people. And don’t go trying to tell me that that honor belongs to “The Brain Eaters,” because its people weren’t dead, they were just taken over by parasitesBut I did find one “first:” This is the first movie whose zombies have those creepy full-white eyes. Ew! That almost makes up for it being like a half-finished episode of Dr. Who.
