A Halloween Film Recommendation: The Flesh Eaters (1964)

AMC has been filling the gaps this week showing this, and it's one of several well done sixties horror movies that does more with less. I hear you saying, but Aaron, what does this have to do with comics? Shouldn't this be on the B-movie blog? Well, the comic connection is that it was scripted by none other than Arnold Drake, creator of Doom Patrol as well as Deadman.

Nothing says titillating horror like a girl's saggy bikini butt.

On a separate note, this and Robocop 2 would make a great comic-book-writers-as-screenwriters double feature (maybe not, actually).

I searched high and low for a better image to represent Flesh Eaters, I don't know about distributors sometimes.

I seem to recall Robocop 2 had kind of a J Jonah Jameson style robot with a TV screen face, but my memory's hazy, it would have been VHS when I saw it.
