A Trailer a day keeps the Boogeyman away! From Hell It Came (1957)

From Hell It Came 1957

A wrongfully accused South Seas prince named Kimo (Gregg Palmer) is executed by knife thrust to the heart. Kimo returns as an angry spirit called a Tabanga/Baranga (I haven’t seen it in a while so I can’t remember which is the correct name, I’ll have to do a feature in Obscure Scream Gems soon!), a wickedly adorable glowering walking tree stump with a pulsing heartbeat!

The Tabanga Tree is one of the marvelous creations by the great B- Monster Maker…Paul Blaisdell.

Now scientists Dr. William Arnold ( Tod Andrews) and Dr. Terry Mason ( Tina Carver ) must find a way to stop him on his murderous revenge rampage….!

Directed by Dan Milner and starring Tod Andrews, Tina Carver, and Linda Watkins as Mrs. Mae Kilgore  (who was featured in 3 of the best Thriller episodes.)
