It Conquered the World and The She-Creature were actually released as a double feature in 1956. They were remade as Zontar, the Thing from Venus and Creature of Destruction in 1966 and 1967 to bring them into color and onto color televisions. The original, black-and-white versions are linked above (maybe), and the remakes are embedded.

Management is not responsible for anyone freaking out due to scary overdose.
