circa 1970 science fiction movie, space alien, stop-action disembowelment.

Science fiction B movie, circa 1970 plus or minus a few years.   In a scene toward the end of the movie, a space alien in human form stopped the car, stepped out, and his intestines fell out of his abdominal cavity (in a close-up, stop-motion). He staggered back to the car.  A female human was a passenger in the car.  He was trying to escape the authorities, not sure why the female was with him.  Saw this movie as a late-night feature on TV, half asleep, at around the age of 11 or so, and it creeped me out for many years afterward.   May have been one of the 5o0 or so movies with John Carradine.  In English (dubbed?).  Could have been color, but I saw it on a B&W set.

  1. Thanks, Livinghead! I had never been able to find out anything about this movie, and my faulty memory was not helping. The woman in the car with “Bronco” featured prominently in the movie prior to that scene, so that I remembered his “damaged flesh” scene incorrectly. The movie has apparently shown under four other English titles, and is also available for free on PlutoTV. Amazon Prime has it, but many out there might think that they wouldn’t get their money’s worth ($3.99 rental). These older sci-fi flicks had a surreal believability that no doubt helped spawn a rash of UFO stories in the 60’s. I’m not an expert, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was one of the first “gore” scenes in cinema. I have only skimmed over it to verify that it was the movie I remembered. Looking forward to watching all of it again soon.
