They Came from the 50's......... by dusty-abell They Came from the 50's......... by dusty-abell
Here's my homage to all the great Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror movies of the 1950's I grew up watching as a kid on the late night picture shows, weekend film festivals & Creature Feature programs in the 1970's & 80's! This is actually a revisit to a piece I did almost 9 years ago or more now, that I was NEVER happy with...... it had been in the back of my mind for some time to go back and give it another shot. I'm SO much happier this time around, plus I got to add about 15 more things to the piece. You can find a key to all the characters here dusty-abell.deviantart.com/art…

Hit that Download button to really see all the detail in the piece................

Thanks, hope you get a kick out of it, it was really fun to do!

Back when TV stations actually bothered to run old films instead of the now endless cycle of infomercials.........

Gah! I hate infomercials and reality TV.  That's why I spend most of my time watching Turner Classic Movies, which is showing lots of good old horror movies for the Halloween season.

Yeah it'd be cool to see a mash up of the 50's 60's 70's & 80's horror movie villains together though

I recognize the giant man but the giant woman? Giant woman equals giant tits so how was that scary even in the fifties?
