Unknown" the other night, for the first time in many years, it suddenly struck me that I remembered virtually nothing from this particular outing. And yet, all I could recall was that "this is the one with the spore plants," and just about nothing else; surely, NOT a good sign going in.
Usually, the older the poster, the rarer it is. Authentic original theater issued movie posters usually contain an NSS information tag/paragraph and number. However, this is not always true. There are plenty of original movie posters that do not contain NSS info.

And now that I have refreshed my memory of this episode, it seems clear to me just why my memory had been so hazy regarding this one: There really is nothing much to remember about it, as very little in the way of story or action is provided to the viewer to begin with!
For me, it was the second episode of a group that seemed to indicate that the program was entering a midseason slump of sort. Whereas episodes 17 - "Don't Open Till Doomsday," "ZZZZZ," "The Invisibles" and "The Bellero Shield"--proved to be some of the most fondly remembered episodes that the program ever gave us, beginning with episode 21, "The Children of Spider County," the show entered into a run of around five episodes that were of a slightly lesser, decidedly middling quality, only to rebound in a very big way with episode 26, "The Guests.
Unknown" just might be the weakest of the lot. This, by the way, is all subjective and comparative, of course, and episodes such as 25, "The Mutant," must remain very fine sci-fi in anybody's book. Still, I was happy to rediscover that even though this particular hour of "The Outer Limits" surely does suffer in comparison to most of the other 32!
In this episode, we encounter some of the crew of Project Adonis, an orbiting space wheel floating 1, miles above the Earth. When some mushroomlike growths are discovered clinging to the outside hatch and brought inside, one of the crewmen, Lt.
Howard Dabney Coleman, unrecognizable here sans moustacheexperiments on it, placing it in an agar bath and then an incubation chamber, where it sprouts and becomes a pretty-looking, lilylike plant. But upon removing the alien growth from the chamber, Howard is suddenly sprayed by a cloud of spores and what looks to be a mist of sorts from the plant, killing him fairly instantly.
Later, it is seen that an artificial tanning lamp also causes the mushroomlike thingies to sprout. But real trouble only comes later, when a group of the Adonis crewmen, returning to Earth after their tour of duty, are struck down by the plant spores and sickened unto death.
Back on Earth, the project commander, Col. MacWilliams Stephen McNallyfaces the very tough decision of whether to allow these men to land on Earth and risk contaminating the planet, OR to instruct them to self-destruct while still in space.
Ultimately, the returning Adonis crewmen ARE permitted to touch down at a Florida spaceport, but crash-land in a wooded area nearby. And unfortunately, those alien plants very quickly take over the entire area, spewing spores of death all the while.
Can anything eradicate this new and frightful menace? The Official Companion," it was discovered only after this episode finished shooting that the running time was a scant 45 minutes, thus necessitating padding and numerous insert shots to fill it out to a proper length.
And the episode does indeed feel padded, with an extra-long and surprisingly dull precredits sequence, endless shots of those darn plants, and an extended interlude during which a crewman takes a space walk to effect repairs.
The episode is sloooow moving, to put it mildly, and the so-called "bear" of the hour, those plants, is hardly an intimidating one. The resolution of the crisis at the episode's finale is something of a deus ex machina that comes out of, uh, thin air; credible though it might be, anyone who has seen "The War of the Worlds" might have an inkling as to the nature of the denouement here.
The spores that these alien growths emit look just like cereal, and thus I was not at all surprised when Schow revealed that they were indeed Puffed Wheats. Actually, the spores here are pretty darn reminiscent of the ones that would be featured in the Season 1 episode of "Star Trek" entitled "This Side of Paradise.
Visually, however, the spores are pretty much identical. In all honesty, what this episode of "The Outer Limits" brought most forcefully to this viewer's mind was an Italian sci-fi film of the sort helmed by director Antonio Margheriti in the mid-'60s; films such as "Battle of the Worlds" and "War of the Planets" In other words, a Grade B sci-fi film, here featuring a lackluster script from Stephen Lord, but fortunately given that wonderful first-season "OL" feel.Cool Design & Lettering.

Follow. There's a way of writing/drawing that is simply beautiful" this poster was a personal favourite of mine because of the painted look of the 'g'. It almost looks like a movie poster the way its laid out even though there is no images.".
For the title I chose Trajan Pro. Love it or hate it, it's a good looking font, and it's used a lot for movie titles for it's dramatic look and feel. I applied a slight drop shadow and inner glow layer styles to the title font. For the credits, I used a font called SF Movie Poster.
This is a great condensed font, excellent for adding a ton of names into a very tight space. It really reminds me of Johns Pizza in the village but without the writing on the booths and walls.

The official Jurassic Park movie poster. This features the key poster art for the movie and lists the cast and crew. This is the bare minimum movie poster so you want to know how to make this one. And there we have it, that is how to make a movie poster.
As always, harsh constructive criticism is welcome, it is due in 2 weeks so I have time to improve things. Oh and the movie is due to release early (Just kidding, but I wish it was.) Update: Top Posters of all time.
