Planet of the Vampires

Mario Bava, most commonly known from his horror movies and as the director of "Diabolik," crafted this brilliant story of space travelers that land on a planet of vampire/parasites that want to use the humans as hosts to leave their planet for a more life-friendly planet, say Earth. This movie is so underrated from its detailed costumes to the great sets, one wonders if the makers of Alien saw it, because the two films are very similar, but this one came first. The lead actor is incredibly good and the two actresses are incredibly beautiful. This is a fun movie and should be seen by anyone who isn't too jaded by today's CGI laden movies.

1965 1 hour 28 minutes Not Rated, but only contains mild violence.
