Compare and Contrast: I Talk to the Trees....

on December 22, 2010 by Steve Simels

From the set of The Wizard of Oz (Victor Fleming, 1938): An unidentified technician recoils at the sight of one of the film's crotchety fruit-throwing apple trees...


...perhaps because he senses that in From Hell It Came (Dan Milner, 1957) it would be reincarnated as the vengeful jungle banyan known as... The Tabonga!


I should add that From Hell It Came is one of the my all time favorite B-horror flicks of the 50s, mostly for the scene where the Tabonga, chased around his island home by angry natives with torches, manages to elude his pursuers by hiding behind...a tree.
