Queen of Blood (1966)   3 comments

Queen of Blood

An alien spacecraft sends a distress call to Earth moments before crash landing on Mars. Since it’s 1990 and the United States has a cadre of rockets at the ready for such an emergency, we send one up to see what all the fuss is about.

“Have you tried wearing it down?”

A crew of five, including John Saxon and DENNIS HOPPER, flies up to Mars to save the day. They find one survivor, a female in a catsuit with a weird tulip hairdo and green skin.

“Sure! Let’s bring her on board. What can happen?”

They decide to bring the alien on their spaceship because that always works out well. Before you can say, “Have you seen my cat?” Tulip Head gets hungry.

“Perhaps a soupçon of O positive before bed?”

Dennis Hopper…let me repeat that, DENNIS HOPPER tries to feed the alien but she won’t eat the weird Soylent Green-like astronaut food offered her. Later we find out why. Her tastes run to liquid nourishment and no one in the crew is safe from her snacking. Instead of killing her or jettisoning her into space, they tie her loosely and try to stay awake.

“Is there a Dunkin’ Donuts around here?”

As you might have guessed, she gets out and let’s just say, her efforts leave a few empty bunks in the crew’s quarters.  They still don’t kill her though because science (Basil Rathbone!) needs to study her and, oh crap, she laid eggs.

“Game over, man.”

Director, Curtis Harrington made some nifty films for American International Pictures like Night Tide and Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet. He also wrote Queen of Blood and a number of other screenplays. You don’t have to look too closely to find connections between this film and a couple later, more famous science fiction favorites. This is a fun one.
