The Psychosexual Menace of I MARRIED A MONSTER FROM OUTER SPACE

Despite its sci-fi trappings and absurdist title, I MARRIED A MONSTER FROM OUTER SPACE is one of the most paranoid psychosexual horror films of the 1950s.  Alongside another Cold War exercise in terror, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, the 1958 film (originally intended to be the A-picture on a double feature), has more to do […]
