KEEP WATCHING THE SKIES! American Science Fiction Movies of the Fifties

Keep Watching the Skies! is THE bible for sci-fi and monster movie nerds. It goes into such detail about these genre films from the fifties that it almost defies credulity. If you have a favorite giant bug movie from the golden age of atomic sci-fi it is a dead-bang certainty that it is deconstructed in Mr. Warren’s epic, two volume tome (it is the combined edition that CONELRAD recommends). Of course, there are numerous other subgenres presented in the book besides the giant insect flicks.

One of the features of Warren’s reviews that is particularly entertaining is that he includes contemporaneous reviews for the films. It is fascinating to read what reviewers thought of ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN at the time of its original release.

Mr. Warren’s book is a marvelously entertaining book for serious study or casual reading.
