Steve's Church-less Movie Of The Week: Evil Hand Double Feature ...

The Ataris: Science Fiction Double Feature (reprise)

Yoinked from imdb and the almighty wikipedia god ...

"Hands of a Stranger is a 1962 American film directed by Newt Arnold. When a pianist's hands are destroyed he receives a double transplant from a murder victim. Much to the bewilderment of the pianist, these new hands decide to take control and gain vengeance for their past owner's death.

This movie is a retread of the classic horror tale 'The Hands of Orlac' so memorably filmed in 1935 as 'Mad Love' and done competently in 1961 under the original title."

And Now, Our Feature Presentation ...

"Invasion of the Saucer Men (also known as Invasion of the Hell Creatures, working title - Spacemen Saturday Night) is a 1957 sci-fi comedy film starring Steven Terrell and Gloria Castillo and personally produced by James H. Nicholson for his American International Pictures (AIP). The screenplay by Robert J Gurney Jr and Al Martin was based on the 1955 short story 'The Cosmic Frame' by Paul W. Fairman. The film was released as a double feature with I Was a Teenage Werewolf.

Special effects technician Paul Blaisdell who did the alien make-up recalled that the film was intended to be filmed as a serious feature but gradually fell into a comedy. The entire film takes place in the period of one night with 98% shot on a studio soundstage. The film features an evil alien hand that crawls around and stabs a car's tires with needle-like nails, hence the film's inclusion in today's handy double feature.

Larry Buchanan cheaply remade the film in color in 1966 as a made for television movie for AIP-TV as The Eye Creatures. The The Lillingtons had a song entitled Invasion of the Saucermen on their Death by Television album. The TV series Futurama based the appearance of character Morbo off of the aliens in this film."
