Monsters from the Id!

If you’re in LA this weekend, and you love SciFi and mad scientists – and c’mon, who doesn’t? – then you’ll want to attend the screening of “Monsters from the Id”, a documentary on mad scientists, 1950s movies, and the future of science in the US. Seriously, check this video out and tell me you don’t want to see this:

There will be a panel after the screening, talking about these topics as well. That trailer hits all the right notes, and features some of my favorite movies of all time (“War of the Worlds”, “Them!”, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, “The Thing from Another World”, “Forbidden Planet”, und so weiter). Man, I wish I could go, but I don’t think I can make it. But don’t let that stop you. Put down the Krell brain enhancing machine and get moving!
