The Mole People (1956): Courtesy of Google Video

Here, for your viewing pleasure is the movie The Mole People, which for some reason is available in its entirety. The introduction alone is worth sitting through once. The rest of the movie...well...that's a matter of taste and expectations. Don't expect a lot and you'll be pleasantly lulled to sleep. Expect a lot and you might as well watch something like The Monolith Monsters...

  1. I actually enjoyed this one, though more for the ideas (and the Mole People themselves) than for the execution. It also suffers from one of the lamest, most anti-climactic endings of all time.

    It's no Attack of the Crab Monsters, is what I'm sayin'.

  2. @Jeremy Duncan: The ideas are engaging, if poorly executed. The whole 'Lost Race' angle could have been handled a lot more effectively than it was, but that's hindsight. Buried Mesopotamian colonies with mole-hybrid slaves...that sounds like an RPG scenario...

    You're right about the ending. But what if that wasn't the 'real' ending? That could get interesting...
