The Beast with 1,000,000 Eyes

aka The Beast with a Million Eyes
How bad is it? Producer Roger Corman disowns it. And he was proud of "Carnosaur."
Should you see it? Not really.

This is one of those classic cases of coming up with a great title and then trying to figure out how to film it. After all, what budget will allow for a monster with a million eyes? The plot has a creature from space that is able to take over the minds of animals, seeing through their eyes. It has people attacked by birds (before Hitchcock) and by the family dog (before Stephen King), but the eventual payoff of seeing the monster is an oversized teapot, is disappointing. It's shoddiness is endearing, the acting not too bad.
