The Beast with a 1,000,000 Eyes is the 1955 sci-fi movie. An alien has landed on Earth and plans to take over the planet by possessing every being he can. The Kelley family, who have problems of their own, are unaware of the situation. However, as the wild life slowly starts to act hostile, they realize something is up. Unfortunately, they are far away from civilization, so they cannot easily call for help. Their nerves are getting frayed. Can they defeat the alien or will he take over the Earth?

This is a cheesy B-movie that starts out strong but soon drags by focusing too much on the family’s domestic problems. Bill is rather creepy as he lusts after his fellow veteran’s daughter. It is a relief once the beast starts to infiltrate their farm. The climax is rather smarmy as it turns out that the power of love is able to kill the beast. While the conflict is meant to test their bonds, the viewer may wish that the lesson was handled better. Honolulu sci-fi fans should rent this movie first.
