Die, Monster, Die!
No one can stop this killing machine....It's Already Dead!!!
A young man visits his fiancé's estate to discover that her wheelchair-bound scientist father has discovered a meteorite that emits mutating radiation rays that have turned the plants in his greenhouse to giants. When his own wife falls victim to this mysterious power, the old man takes it upon himself to destroy the glowing object with disastrous results.
Great cast with Boris Karloff and Nick Adams...acting is really good. I love how Boris acts all sinister until he finally opens up. This is another fine example of good film making with a limited budget and small cast..
Ive been a fan of this film for a long time...hopefully it will get an HD release...
I'm not sure how I've never seen this. I guess it's just as well. It's mostly strangely boring, which doesn't seem at all appropriate to a AIP adaptation of Lovecraft starring Boris Karloff. Phooey!
In Die, Monster, Die!, based on H.P. Lovecraft's "The Colour Out Of Space," smug American Stephen Reinhart visits his new girlfriend Susan Witley at her family's mansion in Arkham, England. (It is unclear why the story's original New England location was moved across the pond.) There he finds Susan's wheelchair-bound (or is he?) father Nahum Witley (Boris Karloff) to be hiding a horrible secret that has to do with a maid's disappearance, Susan's mother's extreme sensitivity to light, and a charred, scarred, dead, and decaying area of land near the Witley house.
The vague descriptions of H.P. Lovecraft's unnamable, indescribable horrors make his stories notoriously difficult to adapt to the screen. In the case of Die, Monster, Die! (as overblown…
Fairly unremarkable AIP fare taken up a notch by virtue of having the incomparable Boris Karloff.
A very colourful-looking film that looks to have been made using the same process of a number of Hammer films of the period, complete with the sometimes-distracting anamorphic distortion at the far left/right of frame.
An adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Colour Out Of Space that actually doesn't drift too far from its source. Nick Adams comes to rescue his girlfriend from her ancestral home. Seems the meteorite her father - Boris Karloff - is keeping in the cellar is having a very bad effect on everybody and everything in the vicinity.
Hollywood never did know what to do with Nick Adams. Boris Karloff, nearing the end of his life, is tremendously game but the movie seems to rely overly much on the fact that he's Boris Karloff to bring menace to the proceedings.
more groovy spooky castle stuff. last 15 minutes get real weird and awesome.
Some similarities to House of Evil in this mostly tedious AIP entry, as Karloff has a greenhouse full of giant plants, and his crazy wife roams around the manor with a knife. It’s not particularly interesting stuff, with lousy supporting actors and a go-nowhere plot.
