It's hard to make much of a case for films like Destination Inner Space, an underwater hybrid of The Thing From Another World and The Creature from the Black Lagoon filmed quickly and on the cheap because, you suspect, the producer knew someone in the mini-sub business. It's the kind of monster movie parents wouldn't have minded their kids seeing while they were off doing something more interesting, and if you were one of those kids who saw it years ago on TV you'll probably cut it a lot more slack out of nostalgia. In its favor it does pre-empt films like Sphere and Leviathan with its plot that sees a team of marine researchers discover an alien spacecraft on the ocean floor and it does have one thing still going for it - a pretty cool monster. Yes, it's a guy in a monster suit, and a monster suit designed to hide his aqualung so he can swim underwater at that, but it's a pretty cool monster suit all the same that leaves you in no doubt that this plague-riddled alien gill man definitely does not come in peace.

Francis D. Lyons may have won as Oscar for co-editing Body and Soul but as a director he's strictly of the point-and-shoot school, covering everything adequately without ever making it look better than the limited resources for the first half hour of perfunctory setup. This is the kind of film where sets are sparse and if a prop isn't specifically mentioned in the script, they'll do without it. Things do pick up once the monster is unleashed and the humans find themselves besieged and running out of oxygen, while the underwater setting gives it some genuine novelty despite the unconvincing miniature work and the occasional problems of shifting scale, but it's never in danger of setting your pulse racing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Destination Inner Space,1966, Released by Cheezy Flicks: What More Do You Need to Know? 3 Aug. 2016
By Old and in the way - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Somehow, this old sci-fi gem slipped under my radar, until a just few years ago. As some of the the other viewers have already stated, in one way or another, "Destination Inner Space" is one of several 60's sci-fi movies that borrowed heavily from 50's sci-fi, switching outer space to inner space, often, as in this case, the ocean. Other concepts of inner space in film include the human body, as in "Fantastic Voyage" and the human mind; "Charly" comes quickly to mind.

In relation to the theatrical "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," DIS is low budget and not very original. However, taken as mid sixties cheeze, the kind I loved to go to the movies for back then, it is awesome. From a child's point of view, it takes too long to get to the monster and the real action. However when it does, it is exciting and worth the wait. And, that's just the way movies were back then. And although the fish monster is not as great as the Creature from the Black Lagoon, for 1966, it's still very cool.

As an adult who has developed more that just a taste for cinematic cheeze, but a love of it, this is fun. The sets and effects are between top notch sci-fi theatrical film and sci-fi TV, such as the "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" TV series, which was sheer perfection to me as a 10 year old boy.

The cast stars Garry Merrill and Scott Brady, two fine actors whose demand was down, yet who turn in appropriately melodramatic performances. The rest of the male supporting cast do a fine job, as do the ladies, who add a little sexual tension to the drama, though are primarily here as eye candy. As actors, Sheree North is good and Wende Wagner is simply beautiful.

I watched it on Amazon streaming and my internet speed isn't good enough to get a great picture, so I can't comment on that. What I can say is that if you love 60's sci-fi cheese and haven't seen this, it is neither the best nor the worst. Nonetheless, it's a fun trip down memory lane.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sea Monster, Sheree North=Not Bad! 26 Aug. 2015
By Max Sun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Sea Hunt, Flipper, and other TV shows/movies involving the ocean were quite successful back in the 60s. This is a nice little diversion.

There is an amusing lack of urgency by the Navy about a possible new enemy submarine, but that is part of the charm of this type of movie. The tension between the male leads is silly in it's execution. The main reason to watch is of course Sheree North.

The effects are weak save for the impressive sea monster suit. Dr. Peron finds her hero and the underwater flying saucer was rarely a subject in sci-fi movies of that era.

3.0 out of 5 stars ... one of those sci-fi movies that's monster is so bad it makes the movie worth watching 16 Feb. 2016
By James M. Dunnam - Published on Amazon.com

This is one of those sci-fi movies that's monster is so bad it makes the movie worth watching. It's pretty obvious that the hump on the back of the monster is hiding the air tank for the actor in the monster suit. I give the person create though for being able to swim and move as well as they did. The rest of the acting was..okay. It's one of those movies that I watched out of the corner of my eye why surfing the internet on my iPad and/or laptop. In other words something to make noise in the background.
3.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have this obscure aquatic alien flick available BUT be warned! Picture & Audio are strictly Dollar Store quality. :-( 21 Dec. 2013
By Hose Knows (aka Jinzo Ningen) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
THE STORY: Mysterious alien saucer lands at the bottom of the ocean, threatening the scientists & engineers of a nearby deep-sea research facility. A huge, finned whatzit who apparently piloted the interstellar ship attempts to make our world its breeding ground. A small team of aquanauts are forced to defend themselves against the hulking, finny fiend AND figure out a way to stop it before the thing begins reproducing ...potentially threatening all life on the Earth. Oddly enough, this film has many of the same plot points as the decades later underwater monster mash, DEEPSTAR SIX.

THOUGHTS: This waterlogged sci-fi has some great B-list character actors in it but best of all it was a real treat to finally see the man behind the voice of Jonny Quest's bodyguard, "Race Bannon," actor Mike Rhodes. The bulky monster suit looks pretty cool and has a charming "Black Lagoon" vibe to it. Film is undeniably silly & simple-minded, like most fare of this type, but that's OK! Flicks like this one are great fun to screen late at night with a big bucket of popcorn.

THE DVD: I would've given DESTINATION INNER SPACE a top rating just to finally have it on DVD, but the release is a disappointing cheapjack job from those lowball losers at Cheezy Flicks. Like everything else I've seen from these guys, the audio & video quality are on par with a 2nd or 3rd generation VHS taped off of a late night TV airing, which is probably what this was "mastered" from. It's watchable, but barely. Certainly nothing to brag about, that's for sure. Still, this is the only home video outfit that I've ever seen offering this rather rare sci-fi title, so your options to own the film are essentially this crap or nothing. The movie definitely isn't an "A" picture or even some beloved old "B" movie. It's more like an unheard of "C" or "D" effort. Even so, it deserves a proper remastering and a decent legit release. Olive Films, Kino-Lorber and Shout!Factory have taken it upon themselves to obtain and release a lot of older genre product lately. Hopefully one of these specialty video companies will snag DESTINATION INNER SPACE and, using better quality source material, give us a top shelf version of this old school aquatic alien flick on DVD or, dare I hope... Blu-ray? Don't hold your breath, but keep your fingers crossed. 4 STARS for the film, minus 1 STAR for the low-end quality = 3 STARS. Glug.

If you stumble upon this movie by some chance, as I did searching through free SciFi prime movies to watch, give it a go.
As far as movies go, it doesn't deserve the four star rating I gave it. As far as cheesy SciFi flicks go, it's pure gold.

As others before me stated, the film centers a black lagoonish creature that hatches from a space ship in the ocean. It kills a few people, and the crew is left with no choice but to confront it to fix their small air problem.

I grew up watching cheesy SciFi movies. Some were hit and miss. Some were so bad that I'd tell you to avoid them with a fifty foot pole. If ecialyou find yourself reading this, however, give this one a chance. It has some decent moral lessons as well (especially modern day, with the discovery of Kepler-22b- and our colonization test on Mars scheduled for 2025).
