Alien Massacre (1967)

aka Dr. Terror's Gallery of Horrors, aka Gallery of Horrors, aka The Blood Suckers, aka Return from the Past

How bad is it? It's terrible.
Should you see it? If you're a huge fan of John Carradine and Lon Chaney Jr.... maybe.

I've seen this film by accident at least 5 times. Most people find it by looking for the similarly titled "Dr. Terror's House of Horrors." Many of the titles used have nothing to do with the film , which is an anthology of five stories involving vampires, werewolves and walking dead. It looks like it was filmed on a high school stage with whatever props were lying around and the script, which adds nothing new or interesting to the genre, probably took less than a day to write. Chaney and Carradine don't appear together; they, director Hewitt and actor Roger Gentry were also involved in the earlier "Wizard of Mars" (reviewed earlier), which, while bad, was better than this.
