The Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1950s
On this list of the best 1950s sci-fi movies, you will see a significant crossover between horror and science fiction. The science fiction films of the decade contained elements of horror, and the horror films of the ‘50s often contained a sci-fi bend. A prime example of this trend is Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, which can also be found on our list of the best ‘50s horror movies.

One of the greatest sci-fi movies ever made is the 1951 classic The Day the Earth Stood Still, the story of an alien visitor and the dire consequences that ensue. Other notable ‘50s sci-fi films on this list include The Incredible Shrinking Man, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Forbidden Planet.

Another iconic sci-fi film on this list that features elements of the horror genre is The Blob, starring Steve McQueen. The Blob was featured at drive-in theaters around the country, and remains a popular throwback sci-fi film even to this day. Vote up the best ’50s sci-fi movies below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
