I'm looking for this black and white horror film I watched back in the 70s. It featured a ski lift, mountain top and these clouds, and there was something in the clouds that killed you. These films were on the TV, it was a feature called Monday night X-film. Can you help please?

  • Is it one film or several?

I'm inclined to think this might be The Trollenberg Terror, better known in some markets as The Crawling Eye.

The film's storyline concerns journalist Philip Truscott investigating unusual accidents occurring near a resort hotel on a mountain near Trollenberg, Switzerland. United Nations troubleshooter Alan Brooks suspects these deaths are related to a series of similar incidents that happened three years earlier in the Andes mountains, which involved an unexplained radioactive mist and cloud formation.

It doesn't involve a ski lift, but it does involve a cable car, which is similar technology, but larger and enclosed.

    I think this must have been the inspiration for the Freakazoid episode "The Cloud". Huh! Commented May 14, 2015 at 20:03
