This week the Castle team go back to a movie that is the undeniable blueprint for Ridley Scott‘s Alien— the 1966 Queen of Blood, starring Dennis Hopper, John Saxon, and Basil Rathbone. Here, Earth astronauts follow a distress call to a crashed alien craft — only to take on board an alien queen who has vampiric designs on them all. So, fine, it’s the proto-Alien, but is it watchable today? Listen and find out!
