About

A Classic US one sheet poster for the 1957 B-movie thriller "Not Of This Earth," one of the earliest sci-fi movies made by prolific low-budget producer/director Roger Corman in what has become a seventy year career. In an alien-vampire mashup, the plot saw an extraterrestrial humanoid sent to earth to discover whether human blood can save his dying race. One of a wave of low-budget, exploitative B-movies produced for the burgeoning teen drive-in market, the film was released as the bottom half of a double feature with Corman's "Attack of the Crab Monsters." More often than not, the best thing about a B-movie is the poster, and this is no exception. Designed by Albert Kallis, one of the great American movie poster artists, the iconic silent scream immediately captures your attention and certainly did its job drawing in the viewers - the film reportedly made a 400% profit in the first week! Despite its cheap thrills, Time Out reviewed "Not Of This Earth" as "a minor sci-fi gem," and the film has spawned at least two remakes.
