I had the great poster for this movie on the wall of my room when I was a kid (along with This Island Earth, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and several others). But I didn't actually see the movie until about 30 years later!

It's a pretty low-budget film but it does have a few good moments. The credits in the post above lists Leonard Nimoy, but you'll never recognize him. He's only in a brief scene and you don't exactly get a good look at his face.

And just for the record, in spite of what that great poster shows, the people who are victimized by The Brain Eaters don't have white eyes and sharp canines. Darn it.

This movie became a cult hit after the producers were sued by Robert A. heinlein for ripping off his story The Puppet Masters. He lost.

He lost in court, Butch -- but when those thieving, plagiarizing bastards stand before the throne of God I'm sure the Holy Ghost will look down at these unrepentant sinners and roar at them in a voice which will thunder throughout heaven and shake the foundation of the Earth.

"I'm sick and tired of you assholes stealing ideas from people who have more brains in the pinkies I gave them than in the balls I forgot to give you!"

Boy, that'll be the day, won't it?" :D
