Classic Sci-Fi Double Feature

  • Welcome to the sci-fi double feature film page. 
  • On this page I’ll be featuring a double feature of classic science fiction films for you to view and enjoy. 
  • Keep visiting the page as a different double feature will appear each week or two. 
  • There will also be links to any posts that might be on this blog about the films.

For this double feature session, we’ll be viewing two sci-fi films that have been somewhat unfairly maligned. Well, you make your own judgments. Enjoy!

Assignment: Outer Space (1961)

An Italian sci-fi film set in the future (2116 AD) where Ray Peterson, reporter for the Interplanetary News, is assigned to write a story aboard a space station. His routine assignment turns out to be anything but routine when he finds himself actively taking part in a situation involving an out-of-control space station threatening the Earth.

Doomsday Machine (1972)

It is revealed that the Red Chinese have built a "doomsday machine" capable of destroying the surface of the Earth, and that they plan to use it within a matter of days. Also involved in the story is Project Astra, a manned U.S. space mission to Venus which will play a role in the survival of the human race.
