‘The Earth Dies Screaming‘ is a British sci-fi / horror film that was directed by Terence Fisher and focuses on an alien force that invades earth by releasing a toxic gas.
Soon after the gas is released the aliens land, and any survivor that they kill soon rise up from the dead and starts ki9lling survivors.
A small band of survivors seek refuge in a local inn (not unlike ‘Shaun of the Dead‘ in later years) to plan their escape.
Filmed in black and white, this is a film with plenty of creepy moments and also set in place some plot devices and situations that would be adopted, used, and refined in future zombie films.
The posters that accompanied the film are very enjoyable and are steeped in 1960s sci-fi aesthetics (as opposed to horror).
