    Even if you've never seen the movies, the monsters he created are iconic of 50's sci-fi cinema. Which alien/monster is your favorite?

    It! The Terror from Beyond Space. This was clearly an inspiration for ALIEN.

    Maybe scriptwise, but remember: We're judging Blaisdell's monster makeup effects ONLY, not on the strength of the movies they appear in.

    You guys don't have to have seen any of these movies to vote, you know. Just look at the pictures and pick the monster that looks the coolest to you.

    It! The Terror From Beyond Space, definately. Works for me at every level.
     
  6. Having never seen any of these films, I'll go with Invasion of the Saucermen.

    Wow, hard choices. I almost want to go with It Conquered the World simply because Beverly Garland kicked the original prop like it was a football. The She-Creature is a favorite movie of mine but I always found the costume somehow not fitting for the movie, like a suit out of a Japanese Kaiju flick.

    Although it's dopey I have to go with Invasion of the Saucermen, it's an iconic costume that perfectly captures how I picture space creatures from the 50's.
