The 1965 B-movie The Night Caller (also known by its alternative US titles, Night Caller from Outer Space and the less subtle, and much less accurate, Blood Beast from Outer Space) starts out as a typically British sci-fi / horror flick in the vein of The Quatermass Xperiment before, about forty minutes in, going off in a direction so unbelievably daft, it is amazing the actors taking part were able to keep straight faces whilst shooting the film. Scientists John Saxon, Maurice Denham, and Patricia Haines track what they think is a comet down to earth, only to discover it was actually a matter-vessel transporting an alien being. Named Medra and apparently hailing from Ganymede, Jupiter's third moon, he's eight feet tall, has hands like the Creature from the Black Lagoon, talks in polite Home Counties RP, and looks like Peter Sutcliffe after he's sampled one of Dr. Jekyll's cocktails. On a mission to abduct human females and return with them to his home world, the method by which the fearsome Medra goes about `recruiting' these women is truly ludicrous, with him advertising for hopeful models in the pages of 'Bikini Girl' magazine!
The Night Caller's director, John Gilling, was responsible for a couple of the better horror movies of British cinema's mid-1950s to mid-1970s boom period, films like The Flesh and The Fiends (1959) and Hammer's The Plague of the Zombies (1966), and his work on this less well-known effort is similarly solid; Jim O' Connolly's script has a few witty flourishes, and whilst the imported American Saxon (Enter the Dragon) is a slightly incongruous lead, we do get great performances from the rest of the cast, particularly Haines, Alfred Burke as a copper on the case, and especially The Wicker Man's Aubrey Morris, gloriously seedy as a porn-peddling Soho scumbag.

1.0 out of 5 stars The colour version is crap 26 April 2014
By buffer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen the B&W version, I guess i was expecting too much, the colours were just like the colour version of A Christmas Carol (the Alistair Sim version yuk) I was surprised the DVD contained the B&W version, so i watched this first, then the colour one, i only managed about 5 minutes, i could not watch it any longer, but i am glad it had the B&W version as this is the best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Moody and noirish 9 Feb 2013
Format:DVD
Moody and noirish 60's British sci fi thriller that starts like a Hammer Quatermass movie, before veering off into the world of seedy Soho pornographers.

It's bizarre but entertaining. Only a rushed and unresolved ending really spoilt things for me.
