Rocketship XM





The Future Is Coming!


A cheap B&W movie rushed into to production to beat the groundbreaking "Destination Moon" to the cinema screens in the early 50s, Rocketship XM sees a group of plucky astronauts veer off their chosen route to the moon, landing instead on mars in a mind numbing piece of unscientific anti-logic that sets up the rest of this odd slice of B-movie madness.

On arrival the crew discover...

Beneath The Planet Of The Apes





The stella success of the original Planet of the Apes movie spawned a franchise that encompassed live action TV, a kids cartoon and four sequels. All the follow up films are entertaining, although diminishing budgets mean that some of the films are fun to watch for the wrong reasons! Beneath the Planet of the Apes is the first sequel and relates to a new crew, sent to rescue Taylor, the astronaut from the first movie....

The Nightmare That Threatens The World!


Don Siegal's classic slice of Cold War paranoia continues to send chills down the spine after over 50 years and several remakes.

Body Snatchers is set in the world of perfect 1950s small town Americana, A Norman Rockwell Idyll of conservative values and well behaved, perfectly manicured wives, where, seemingly from nowhere, mysterious vegetable...

Capricorn One

Posted 5th April 2009 at 10:40 PM by Sam@Cult Labs

Capricorn One

Capricorn One is a slice of 70s Sci-Fi paranoia in which Hollywood takes one of the ultimate conspiracy theories - that the moon landings were faked - and moves the action to a martian styled TV Studio.
