OUTER LIMITS / It Crawled Out Of The Woodwork - 1963
Let's start off the month with this wild little tale from the mind of Joseph Stefano, head writer for the Outer Limits series. It's all about an energy-being that overruns an experimental power station after being accidentally created. Anyone killed by the thing can be restored to life with electronically-controlled pacemakers and are made to service the "being" by a fanatical scientist who pretends to be looking for a way to destroy it.
We have a sound clip from this episode for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our lint bunny monster, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's... IT CRAWLED OUT OF THE WOODWORK!
Here's where the problem starts, located near to where I first lived in LA. Hell, I even had to live through the Northridge Earthquake after that!.. Get me outta here!!
Here's Michael Forest as Professor Peters who's applying for a job at Norco, Kent Smith plays the head of the facility, Dr. Bloch. Michael was in these Roger Corman flicks... VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT, BEAST FROM HAUNTED CAVE, SKI TROOP ATTACK and ATLAS.
Peters is introduced to Professor Linden, played by Joan Camden, who wears a strange looking pacemaker...
She tells Peters to go into a long corridor, then closes the door behind him and sics the terrifying energy monster on him!.. I want my BANKIE!!
Peters shows up at his apartment and his brother, played by Scott Marlowe, wants to know where the Hell he's been. After a scuffle, big bro ends up falling into the bathtub and gets electrocuted big time because of his pacemaker!
