  1. Eric Brightwell's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    Like many low budget horror films of the era, the first two acts are pretty boring and insubstantial. When many of those films finally revealed the monster, however, it was laughably goofy and anticlimactic. The monsters in this one, though, are like Ray Harryhausen-meets-David Lynch and the spectacle of their violent destruction is worth the wait.

  2. bryanvmh's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    "An invisible threat" opens a lot of allegorical avenues, and this one makes sure to really state what the concern is (nuclear power), but so much of its admittedly short run time is a drag. I did like the satellite precursor to the "enhance!" phenomenon - this machine even lets you know when you're approaching the danger zone

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    Quite slow and boring at points, but the ending is a bonafide hoot.

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    That certain was a late '50s horror movie!

  5. Steve G.'s rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    Plods its stupid way towards an enjoyable last quarter of an hour, but I think any monster movie that makes its monsters mostly invisible should be subject to some kind of trade description investigation.

  6. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    I see a lot of influence on video games in this, specifically Half-Life and Resident Evil 4. the last 15 minutes should have been half the movie

  7. runfromfire's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    Classic B cinema. A practically-budgetless monster flick drenched in Cold War fears and cheeseball acting. The SFX were pretty boss for the late-50s though.

  8. Chase Vault's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    This movie has it all: radiation plants, the mad professor, Russians, thought materialization and vampirism. Besides, this movies wins the spectator over with superb fallacy and almost enchanting visual effects. It's hilarious. Watch it.

  9. Kyle Lewis's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    Did an at home double feature with this film and The Blob. Fiend without a Face definitely had better acting and a more imposing threat.

  10. Sadhaka's rating of the film Fiend Without a Face

    Creepy crawling brain sucking... brains! A clear predecessor to both Night of the Living Dead and The Evil Dead. Amazing stop motion on a budget. "It penetrated the medulla oblongata". "They're evil!"
