Queen of Blood / Planet of Blood

directed by Curtis Harrington

USA 1966, color, 81 min

With Robert Boon, Dennis Hopper, Florence Marly, Judi Meredith, Basil Rathbone, John Saxon

Earth receives a radio transmission from a species of interstellar vampires inhabiting a dying planet. When one of the alien ships crashes on Mars, a human rescue team locates a survivor and brings her aboard the return ship to Earth, unaware that she feeds on blood. Some of the effects footage comes from the Russian film, Nebo Zovyot (1960), purchased by Corman. Blood is considered a precursor to Alien (1979). (amctv)

Other sources claim the original footage used to be from Karzhukov's other movie Mechte navstrechu.
