Check out THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME (1932), based on the Richard Connell short story. Gruesome in its Pre-Code way and better, although I do like BLOODLUST.

NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST (1958)>>>>>>>>>>>>>SPOILERS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>


AIP quickie of an Astronaut who is killed on Rocket entering Earth impact, but displaying no signs of death (Rigor Mortis etc). as time goes on, the Group He was working with is terrorized by something outside and his odd return to life, along with a connection of whatever is outside. Eventually, it ends up in Bronson Canyon as so many 50's films seemed too.
While this is cheap looking (under Roger Corman and his Brother, what else would it be?) and the Monster ain't all that, the script for his is actually better than You would guess with elements of the earlier THE CREEPING UNKNOWN and decades older ALIEN. Cast is decent, albeit pretty unknown...all I could see in those parts were Beverly Garland, Yvette Vickers and Russell Johnson. ***

I read The Most Dangerous Game short story a while ago back in 2007....

Never saw the movie, but i always enjoyed that type of story, and I really liked Bloodlust.

The Last Woman On Earth (1960)

the world has an interruption of oxygen, killing everyone besides the main cast....scary situation, worse than zombies honestly. Who needs happy endings.

Great observation! Yes, I think so. That still looks right out of Bava/Argento.

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959). PLAN 9 has been , Thanks to the Medved Brothers THE GOLDEN TURKEY AWARDS, dubbed "The Worst Film of All Time" . Is it bad? Absolutely! But the All Time Worst? Don't think so!
I had heard of this in various magazines like FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND and CASTLE OF FRANKENSTEIN, but not much info. Finally saw it on late night TV in the late 70's and was all but on the floor laughing at the amazing dialogue and the many technical gaffes. Seeing it some years later, paid more attention and despite the whole ludicrous situation, the message behind the film actually makes a lot of sense and I began to see there was more to it than met the eye.
Writer/Producer/Director Ed Wood is usually referenced in the same "Golden Turkey" categories and although His work was usually wanting, I feel He did the best He could with what He had to work with, which usually wasn't much. All of his films are technically "Not Good", but they are at least entertaining, unlike many films with large budgets/Stars that left Me cold, like WILD WILD WEST, ARMAGEDDON, TOP GUN etc. ***
