When I bought this film I was thinking that it would be in the "So bad it's good" category, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 8, 2016. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 15, 2016. I have never heard of 'Monolith Monsters' but was familiar with other classics like 'The Forbidden Planet', the original bw version of 'The Thing', 'When Worlds Collide', 'This Island Earth', and such like. It now gets added to my favourite sci-fi classics like the ones mentioned above. This review is for the Blu-Ray edition of 'The Monolith Monsters' released in June, 2019 by The Shout! The movie remains entertaining even after 50 years and a couple of dozen views. This movie doesn't waste too much time getting anyone to believe what was going on, either, so the story progressed at a nice pace, another reason to like it. On top of that, anyone who actually came into contact with it while it while it was growing, turned to stone. A 1950s US science fiction film with a twist, no monster. This is a different kind of Science Fiction story, where a meteorite crashes to earth carrying a deadly threat. I purchased this because on the extras of the blu ray of Forbidden Planet, James Cameron mentions this movie and as close as he can, sings its praise. Movies like this used to be what scared us half to death, only this one was slightly different than most from its time, because the "monsters" weren't creatures that one would think of, they were actually remnants of a meteor which broke up when it crashed into earth, and would grow when it was touched by water.

I used to have a pre-teen crush on Grant Williams anyway, and he was in so few movies, so it was so nice to see him in this one. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 15, 2018. Some sci-fi film makers from that era always used to blame radiation or present factually incorrect theories in their films just because they really didn't know any better about science at the time, but this manages to avoid all the expected ignorance and I actually thought it was better then the recent Jake Gyllenhall/Ryan Reynolds sci-fi film I saw called 'Life'. Pleasantly surprised by how good this was, considering it was late 50s or so.
