Kilrshrew notes that the original .avi suffered from video noise/flickering in some of the movie segments.  This occurred in mine too, which tells me that the issue is with the master tape BBI must have used.

Trivia: A rare color photograph of the VENUSIAN IT CREATURE shows its true color...lobster red! It was nicknamed Big Beulah by its creator, PAUL BLAISDELL, and Denny Dimwit by the screenwriters. Other names given by the cast and crew were the Tee-Pee Terror, the Cucumber Critter, and the Carrot Monster. During filming, BEVERLY GARLAND told herself that it wasn't finished...that they were still working on it...that it would get better. But of course, it never did. Chocolate syrup served as the Venusian's blood at the dramatic end of the movie. Always ready to reuse props, Corman used the bat-thingies again the following year in 806-THE UNDEAD.

Once again, the exterior shots were done at Bronson Canyon, which was also used for exterior shots in the filming of 107-ROBOT MONSTER; 210-KING DINOSAUR; 315-TEENAGE CAVEMAN; 317-VIKING WOMEN; 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST; 404-TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE; and 701-NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST. This movie was remade for television by director Larry Buchanan (*418-ATTACK OF THE THE EYE CREATURES) as Zontar, The Thing from Venus.

Born in 1926 and a former engineering student who briefly attended Oxford University, ROGER CORMAN directed over 70 films, mostly for American International studios headed by Sam Arkoff. Six of Corman's films have been MSTed: 311-IT CONQUERED THE WORLD; 315-TEENAGE CAVEMAN; 317-VIKING WOMEN; 503-SWAMP DIAMONDS; 511-GUNSLINGER; and 806-THE UNDEAD. Another of his films was used in MST3K The Home Game, H01-THE DAY THE WORLD ENDED. He produced most of the films he directed. Some of his other gems are: Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957); Bloody Mama (1970); Creature from the Haunted Sea (1960); Little Shop of Horrors (1960); Sorority Girl (1957); War of the Satellites (1957); Not of This Earth (1957) again with Beverly Garland; She-Gods of the Shark Reef (1958); Wasp Woman (1959); Creature from the Haunted Sea (1960); and several good Poe-themed films starring Vincent Price. Corman also produced: 406-ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES; 618-HIGH SCHOOL BIG SHOT; and 701-NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST. Having a great knack for seeing fresh and cheap talent, Corman gave many Hollywood big names their first start, such as Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron and Ron Howard's directorial debut. More about Corman can be found in his autobiography, "How I Made A Hundred Movies in Hollywood and Never Lost A Dime."

Born in Minneapolis in 1925, Peter Aurness studied drama at the University of Minnesota. Changing his name to PETER GRAVES upon his arrival in Hollywood, he played Paul Nelson in this movie, starred as the well-meaning-but-culpable scientist Ed Wainwright in 517-BEGINNING OF THE END; was Paul Whitley in K13-SST DEATH FLIGHT; portrayed Jeff in 811-PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR; and provided the uncredited narration in 418-ATTACK OF THE THE EYE CREATURES. Graves, the brother of the equally tall and talented James Arness (star of TV's Gunsmoke), is best known for the role of Jim Phelps in TV's Mission: Impossible and as the host of A&E's Biography. His filmography includes some other bad films, such as 1954's Killers From Space and and 1957's Poor White Trash, as well as several well-regarded films, including 1953's Stalag 17 and the Airplane! movies. His filmography also includes: 1952-Encore; Maytime in Mayfair; 1953-Beneath the 12 Mile Reef; 1955-Court Martial of Billy Mitchell; Let's Make Up; Night of the Hunter; 1957-Casey Jones and the Fury; 1958-Legend of the Sea Wolf; 1968-Sergeant Ryker; 1969-The Magic Christian; 1970-The Adventurers; 1971-The President's Plane is Missing; 1974-Where Have All the People Gone; 1978-Cruise Missile; 1979-The Rebels; 1980-Survival Run; 1983-The Guns and the Fury; The Winds of War (TV miniseries); and 1987-Number One with a Bullet.

Born Beverly Fessenden in 1926, beautiful, smart and feisty BEVERLY GARLAND who plays beautiful, smart and feisty Claire Anderson here, was in two other MSTed Corman flicks: she was the vivacious Vera in 503-SWAMP DIAMONDS and the wiley Sheriff Rose Hood in 511-GUNSLINGER. This talented actress was limited to appearing mostly in Grade-B or lower films, supposedly because she had dared to do television (which was looked down upon in the 1950's) and was considered not good enough for A-pictures. She later became best known for her TV roles in My Three Sons, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and currently on Superman--The Adventures of Lois and Clark. You may have seen her as a guest star on the 1994 MST Turkey Day bumpers. Her other films include: 1949-D.O.A.; 1950-A Life of Her Own; 1953-Neanderthal Man; Problem Girls; 1954-Killer Leopard; The Miami Story; 1955-Desperate Hours; New Orleans Uncensored; Curucu, Beast of the Amazon; 1957-Not of this Earth; The Joker Is Wild; Chicago Confidential; 1958-Saga of Hemp Brown; 1959-Gunfight at Sandoval; Alligator People; 1963-Twice Told Tales; 1968-Pretty Poison (with Rock Hudson); 1969-The Mad Room; 1972-The Voyage of the Yes; Say Goodbye, Maggie Cole; 1974-Where the Red Fern Grows; Airport 1975; 1979-Roller Boogie; 1980-It's My Turn; 1992-World's Oldest Living Bridesmaid; and 1994-Haunted Symphony. Beverly's former husband, RICHARD GARLAND, was also a Corman player, appearing in Attack of the Crab Monsters; and 806-THE UNDEAD.

His looks having landed him mostly villain roles, steely-eyed LEE VAN CLEEF (1925-1989), who plays alien-sympathizer Tom Anderson here, also stars as occidental ninja John McAllister in both 322-MASTER NINJA I and 324-MASTER NINJA 2. Prominent among his many films are director Sergio Leone's famous "spaghetti" westerns: For A Few Dollars More; and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. You can also catch him in Escape From New York; and The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms.

SALLY FRASER, who played Graves' lovely and doomed wife Joan Nelson in this movie, also appears as Glen's determined sister Joyce in 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST and as Helen Kingman in 313-EARTH VS. THE SPIDER. She appeared with Ed Kemmer (who played her husband in 313) again in The Giant From The Unknown.

Born in 1928, RICHARD "DICK" MILLER first got steady employment in Hollywood by appearing in many early films directed by Roger Corman, whom he met through his friend Jonathan Haze. He's been in over 50 TV series including Soap, The Untouchables, Dragnet, Wagon Train, Mannix, General Hospital, Fame, and the mini-series V. Among his 80 film credits: 1954's Apache Woman with Lloyd Bridges; 1956's 311-IT CONQUERED THE WORLD; 511-GUNSLINGER; 1957's War of the Satellites; 806-THE UNDEAD; Not of This Earth; 1959's A Bucket of Blood; 1960's Little Shop of Horrors; The Terror with Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson; 1965's Hush, Hush...Sweet Charlotte; 1977's New York, New York; Gremlins; 1981's The Howling; 1989's Gremlins 2; and 1993's Matinee (with John Goodman).
