Once They Were Men, Now They're Land Crabs: Monstrous Becomings in Evolutionist Cinema

Fascinating piece on the 'menagerie within' in films about animal-becomings, such as Roger Corman's Attack of the Crab Monsters, the Quatermass film Five Million Years to Earth, and others. Deleuze and Guattari's becoming-animal appears in the final pages, but the idea is integral to the argument.
