Forbidden Planet

Forbidden Planet

This film scared the living snot out of me when I was young, but now I think of it as a deeply influential movie.

From its never-been-done-before electronic soundtrack to its Disney-drawn effects, this retelling of Shakespeare's The Tempest is much more than a simple B-Movie.

Similar in a way to Solaris (1972), Mankind, in the form of Dr. Morbius, is trying to understand an alien race, the Krell. However, he does not realise, just as the Krell before him did not, that their ever-increasing scientific advancements were to end in a deadly embrace.
