Dir. Nathan Juran (1958). Programmed by Tim Burton as part of his Lurid Beauty of Monsters series, this enjoyably idiotic cheapster trafficks in alien invasion, atomic angst, and the transmigration of soulsit takes on a whole new luster as imagined through Burtons eyes as a vehicle for Johnny Depp, Helen Carter Bonham, a pair of encephalitic puppets and a talking dog.
