NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST
   Film (1958). Balboa/AIP. Dir Bernard Kowalski, starring Michael Emmet, Angela Greene, John Baer. Screenplay Martin Varno, based on a story by Gene Corman. 65 mins. B/w.
   In this typically cheap 1950s Corman production (the executive producer was Roger CORMAN; his brother Gene produced it from his own story), a rocket pilot has cells implanted in his body by a deeply unconvincing-looking ALIEN who returns to Earth with him. Embryos grow inside him, making him the first (but not the last) effectively pregnant movie astronaut. Several plot twists suggest an attempt to cash in on the popularity of The QUATERMASS XPERIMENT (1955).
