Cheezy Flicks returns with yet another hour long compilation of movie trailers, this time focusing on the science fiction genre.  Despite the name “Cheezy”, there are plenty of flicks featured here that are considered classics.  While this compilation suffers from some of the same problems the other comps in the Cheezy line have had (namely the fact that some trailers are repeated), it’s still a damn good time and any fan of 50’s sci-fi will want to check it out.


The trailers include: Fantastic Voyage, Thunderbirds are Go, War of the Worlds, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Godzilla, Five Million Years to Earth, Them, The Giant Behemoth, It Came from Outer Space, The Love Factor, Barbarella, Konga, Attack of the Puppet People, Phantom from Space, The Incredible Shrinking Man, and Unidentified Flying Objects.  There are also trailers for FOUR Ray Harryhausen movies (First Men in the Moon, Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, One Million Years B.C., and Mysterious Island) as well as FIVE movies that would later appear on Mystery Science Theater (Fire Maidens of Outer Space, Gorgo, The Green Slime, The Phantom Planet, and The Incredible Melting Man). 


Although some of the trailers have been carried over from previous Cheezy offerings, there’s still enough cool new stuff (The Love Factor trailer is a doozy) to warrant putting this on your Netflix Queue.  Vol. 2 quickly followed.
