20 Million Miles to Earth
1957
Directed by Nathan Juran

This film is a stark example of why you should never remove animals from their natural environment. Especially if that natural environment is the planet Venus. Because they could become titanic stop-motion monsters and fuck some serious shit up!

Apparently the creature in this movie is known as the Ymir, but I have no idea how they arrived at that as it never seems to be mentioned at any point in the film. That’s not important though.

What is important is that the stop-motion is done by Ray Harryhausen! And the Ymir fights a fucking elephant!

I give it three spooky pumpkins out of five.
