The character of Dr. Aranya and the spider people were added by Ron Ormond. Herbert Tevos' original story began with Masterson--who was merely a "schizophrenic homicidal maniac"--at the cantina, where the dancer played by Tandra Quinn was just a murder victim. The rest of the story is much the same as was seen in the film minus the various scenes involving the women and dwarfs watching the crash survivors. The film ended when Mexican authorities responded to the flare Phillips fired off and landed on the mesa, whereupon Phillips, Doreen, and Van Croft were rescued and the love triangle was resolved when Doreen chose Phillips over Van Croft.

This mess is one of the worst science fiction movies of the 1950's. It makes Ed Wood's films look good. It does have its moments though.
The acting is terrible and too daft to laugh at. The guitar/piano music score, which hardly stops throughout the movie, is utter rubbish and drove me mad. The only good points about The Mesa of Lost Women are the giant spider scenes. Even the spider looks terrible.
This is grade Z rubbish. A real golden turkey.
Rating: 1 and a half stars out of 5.
