Product Description

A classic science fiction terror thriller about a weird creature from outer space which survives in the rarefied atmosphere of the Swiss Alps and terrorizes scientists in a remote high-altitude research station. This hideous monster hides in the fog-shrouded cloud of mist and kills its victims by decapitation. As the mysterious cloud descends on the Swiss village of Trollenberg, United Nations science investigator Allan Brooks (Forrest Tucker), Professor Crevett (Warren Mitchell) and a young woman with psychic powers (Janet Munro) must find a way to stop the monster's murderous rampage before it's too late.

Format: DVD
Just finished watching this great gem about five minutes ago. Loved start to finish. The dvd transfer was first rate with very little scratchs or wash out at all. Sound was pretty good. As with most all sci-fi/horror movies you don't really see a whole lot of the monster but get your moneys worth at the end. For the budget that the fx guys must not have had they did a fairly good job. The close up of the eye looked really good. I first heard of this movie from reading Stephen King's book IT and had to see for myself. Worth the wait. As with all titles I've gotten so far from Image first rate, run out and get your own and don't leave the lights out. See ya around.

I'm not going to rehash the fairly well known the plot. The other reviews have already covered that pretty well. The story is gripping and the acting is exemplary. The special effects were done on a shoe string budget and show it, but still pull it off marginally (if you suspend your disbelief a bit).
So why the five stars? The DVD film-to-video transfer was made from pristine source materials resulting in a viewing experience I've not had with this movie since I saw it's theatrical release in 1958. Presented in its original 1.66:1 widescreen aspect ratio, it offers a completely restored version totally lacking any scratches or bad cuts. In addition, this version is the European edition with the main title reading "The Trollenberg Terror". The sound is still mono, but the fidelity is rather good. Nice crisp highs, good bass response, and no hiss.
Even with extra material consisting of just the trailer, this DVD is well worth it. Especially to a fan of the film. I also found the liner notes to be emtertaining and very interesting. They include a lot of backgroud to the film, the genre, and I was especially amused at an anecdote about Forrest Tucker.
If you're a fan of the film (or not), I recommend this DVD release.

Format: DVD
4.5 stars for acting story and atmosphere.
-1.5 for mostly poor special effects.
"His head it was torn off"
This line scared the heck out of me as a kid - along with a number of decapataions and idea of an eye monster. I could not sleep alone for weeks. Seeing it now - what is scarey about this film is not the creatures - but more everything that leads up to them.
A very good mysterious plot - spooky, and atmospheric - good acting and an actress, Janet Monroe - who with a bad haircut, worse teeth, funny eyes and a crooked mouth is also very cute in a wholesome sister-ish sort of way. She is very believable and projects all her fears onto the viewer.
I took the eye monsters as realistic and a total terror as a kid. Especially - their exelerated hyper breathing along with a little bell that sounds when they are up to their evil tricks.
Up close the eye creatures are menacing, large, and gross.

But from a distance the monsters look more like marshmellows with pipe cleaner legs. - Infact most of the minitures are shoddy, cheap and not at all believable. Utlra low flying aircraft is slung through the air on strings and the paper cut out people are obvious. A roaring fire appears more like someone burning a cigerette package.

That said - TCE is still a good, fun movie.
TCE will probably entertain and even scare kids. While many adults will enjoy TCE for the atmosphere story they will also cringe when they see the terrible special effects.

Format: DVD
This movie is based on a British TV series The Trollenberg Terror.

A mysterious cloud is occupying the mountain. People are mysteriously disappearing or at least their heads are detaching. Alan Brooks (Forest Tucker) has seen this happen before and is familiar with the phenomenon so he is sent to investigate. Also Sarah Pilgrim (Jennifer Jayne) a psychic in a sister act is compelled to go there; if you do not keep your EYE on her she has a tendency to wander off in a trance.

There is something funny about one of the disappearing villagers that suddenly returns.

It looks like the only hope for the town's people is to head for the lab at the top of the sky lift as it has thick concrete walls. The lab is equipped the standard 50's SCI/FI equipment. Yet your future is cloudy (radioactive cloudy). When confronted by a mysterious eye will you freeze in your tracks or do you have a tentacle to be lifted by the experience.

Do not watch this movie if you are in a cabin.

Format: DVD
This is a real gem. The DVD quality is excellent. British Sci-Fi and Horror from this era often surprises--the films may initially look like standard American triple-feature drive-in fare (quality variable but almost always great fun!) but beyond that they often have better than expected scripts, cinematography, and casts (as is the case here). The Crawling Eye also includes fine music by Stanley Black. Released in 1958, The Crawling Eye has the feel of good British TV from the early Sixties (probably because it was based on a TV series). The plot is engaging (with the neat twist of working a psychic into it--a little ahead of its time) and the monsters are genuinely vile and disgusting. If you like classic Sci-Fi and Horror don't hesitate to add this one to your collection. Other recommended British classics: The Day the Earth Caught Fire and the deeply weird Devil Girl from Mars.
