The Beast With a Million Eyes (1955)


I need this world.

From millions of light years

away, I approach your planet.

Soon, my spaceship lands on Earth.

I need your world.

I feed on fear, live on human hatred.

I, a strong mind,

without flesh or blood,

want your world.

First, the unthinking,

the birds of the air,

the animals of the forest,

then the weaker of men

shall all do my bidding.

They shall be my ears, my

eyes, until your world is mine.

And because I see your most secret acts,

you will know me as the

Beast With a Million Eyes.


A date ranch in the off-season

is the Ioneliest place in the world.

When you've lived through

10 years of off-seasons,

it does things to you.

Not very nice things, I'm afraid.

This is my ranch, not

much of a place anymore.

We've been losing money

for three years now

and I guess that makes me a failure.

At least, my wife seems to think so.

But it isn't just the fact

that the ranch is going bust,

and it isn't just being alone out

here day after day, year after year.

It has something to do with the

feeling you get when you start thinking,

"What's out there, just beyond

the grove, surrounding us?"

The vast and cruel world,

still, dry, deadly,

slowly withering beneath the

white heat of that desert sun,

the perfect place to hatch

a brood of horror or of hate.

Perhaps it began out there, the hate.

Something that goes far

deeper than angry words,

a growing, twisting thing

that's slowly destroying us.


Carol, we've got to settle this.

We're sending Sandy

to college in the fall.

I won't let her go.

The money's in the bank. It's

going to be used for her schooling.

If you want to know the truth, it

has nothing to do with the money.

Carol, what's the matter with you?

We can't keep her here

on the ranch all her life.

- Give her a chance.

- Chance? I never had a chance.

She's your daughter. Do

you hate your own daughter?

Sometimes, when I see

her, so young and pretty,

with all the best years ahead

of her, the years I missed.

Yeah, sometimes I think I do hate her.

That's it! Run away! You

haven't got the courage to...



- Carol, I...

- Oh, get out.

Get out!

Sandy, how long?

Sandy, I told you to

keep that dog out of here.

Come on, boy!


I don't suppose it

really matters, but...

Does anything really

matter to you anymore?

Well, I'm sorry she heard.

I... I didn't mean to...

You say a lot of things

you don't mean, Carol,

but you still say them, don't you?

Yeah. I'm not easy to

get along with, am I?

Oh, I don't know. I think I

could stand it, except for...

Out there.

All that wasteland and mountains.

We might as well be on another planet.

Oh, Allan, without Sandy, I don't

know what would happen to me.

It'd be just you and me and

him, always watching.

Why doesn't he ever

go away on his day off?

Always watching us. Heaven

knows, thinking what thoughts.


We've been over this before. You

must know by now he's harmless.

I've never been sure.

I've got to flood the

north grove this morning.

I'll be home for lunch.


I want you to get out. Go on!

Who's there? Sandy, is that you?

Duke, how did you get in here?

- It's my fault.

- Well, it doesn't matter.

I taught him how to

open the screen door.

- Where are you going?

- Swimming.

Sandy, there's something I'd...

- Will you be back for lunch?

- Do you really care?

Come on, Duke.

Come on, Duke. Here, boy!
