Monolith Monsters (1957)

Monolith Monsters was a horror movie about a meteor that crashes into the earth. However, instead of a blob this time the arriver on earth is a bunch of rocks that spread across a desert wasteland and each time they grow and reform they suck the ever loving silicone right out of anything they come into contact with. This is a great example of what the 1950s horror movie at a drive in was truly all about.

You can tell because this movie while mildly thrilling was the exact kind of thing that despite having a nifty idea had barely any story at all and nothing that should truly engross you for the entire time. That being said, this movie does have a pretty good ending when they cause a large amount of water, apparently the monsters’ ultimate weakness, to wash over the rocks and put them out of their debauchery.
