FIEND WITHOUT A FACE (1958)
I'm sure when FIEND WITHOUT A FACE came out in 1958 it scared the living bejesus out of younger audiences, but watching it now, it's extremely dated. Tons of military stock footage, slow pace, lots of scenes of just people standing around talking, a slow-moving finale that seems to take like 20 minutes, stiff acting, amateur dialogue. The monster attack scenes are entertaining, but other than it's a slow moving affair. Worth a watch for fans of 50's era monster movies, others might want to think twice.
Drinking game idea: every time somebody says "Gibbons", "mental vampire" or "atomic".
