Movie Details

Part of the 13-part 100 Years of Horror series directed by Ted Newsom and hosted by horror movie star Christopher Lee, 100 Years of Horror -- Aliens & Sorcerers looks at horror movies that include sorcery and magic, and at those that cross into the realm of science fiction. This installment of the series features clips from movies including The Magic Sword, Necromancy, the seminal classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The Thing (with Gunsmoke's James Arness in the alien monster suit), It Came From Outer Space, The Blob (starring a very young Steve McQueen), and others. The 100 Years of Horror series chronicles the history of movie horror from the earliest experimental chillers through the "golden age of movie monsters" and on through the gory shock-horror films of the late 20th century. Host Lee starred in The Curse of Frankenstein (1956) and The Mummy (1959). ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
