Sci-Fi Movie Posters
In the 1940s, the internet didn't exist. So, movie directors, writers and producers had to let their imaginations run wild. And they did just that. The Sci-Fi genre significantly increased in popularity during the decade, especially in films. If you didn't know, the genre focuses on imaginative and futuristic concepts that usually involve science (like a mad scientist), technology, space, time travel, parallel universes, and many other creatures. 

We've seen it all from a scientist who turned himself invisible, aliens attempting to take over Earth, and even killer clowns from outer space. Many of these movies are combined with horror. They're seen as classics today, but we want to know what you think about some of these 1940s Sci-Fi movies.

You'll have four options: 'This movie is indeed a classic,' 'It was alright, nothing to go crazy over,' 'I didn't like this movie at all. Not a classic,' and 'I never saw this film.'
