• Fiend Without a Face (1958)

    ** (out of 4)

    At a military base in Canada people start falling dead with their brains and spinal cords apparently sucked out. The locals think it's a madman but soon we learn a scientist has accidentally let loose a group of invisible brain eaters. This film is mainly known for being one of the first to use extreme gore, which is used to good effect at the end of the film. The sound effects are very effective but other than that this is your casual 50's sci-fi film. I prefer The Brain Eaters, which was also released in 1958.
