If you don't like this sort of low-budget movie don't buy it - but don't attack those of us who do. Thoroughly recommended for "anoraks" like me!
First, let it be said, that this is an old film (1958), in black and white, with poor special effects, little budget, a so-so scenario and little known actors. So, why the heck did I rate it four stars? Well, there are many, many reasons:
1) This film is absolutely hilarious. Now, granted, many of the gags were not intended by the director and scenarist, but the final result WILL mightily cheer you up. I can not give away too many details, but let it be said nevertheless that the appearance of the "monsters" and the design of the alien spaceship provide a significant part of the fun. The final "battle for the Earth" scene is another part of the charm of this film - believe me, it is much, much better than those described in "Earth vs. Flying saucers" or "Independance Day" (which are both great monuments of comedy)...)))
2) The reflections about marriage as seen by men, women and "monsters" from outer space are great fun! However, they are NOT for the feminists...
3) This film was amongst the first to make a full frontal attack at the subject of "alien sex", by showing a group of human women who without a shadow of doubt had full intercourse with horrible alien creatures and adding that both sides actually ENJOYED it!. Now, this being the 50s, nothing else than a couple of kisses is shown, but the whole film asks this question: "What exactly were they doing in their bedrooms?" and that gives it a very peculiar, somehow kinky, atmosphere...Read more ›
Stay tuned for her shocking revelation and dilemma on "Who can you trust."
There is a little more psychological depth of thought that went into this movie. It is not just another "Earth girls are easy" script. You may even find yourself rooting for the substitute.
Well worth the slightly higher price tag......!!!
I shall say no more!

Old sci fi B movie but fascinating. The alien has an appreciable psychological profile, very uncommon for a 50s film.Published 13 months ago by Camillo
