This is the second of three films in producer Ivan Tors' "OSI" series. The scientists are taken to the "Snake Mountain Proving Grounds, operated by the Office of Scientific Investigation," according to Dr. Dryden. Dr. Stanton's desk nameplate indicates he is "Chief of Investigations." See more »

As a long time classic sci fi fanatic, I must admit I'd never even heard of this film before. This comes as no surprise as it seems to have had essentially no significant release to VHS or DVD yet. For the fan of classic black and white '50s sci fi, this is essential viewing. Though the model effects are primitive and the "science" is rather dubious, the cast is first rate. Reasonably effective use of stock footage of U.S. military V-2 rocket tests helps overcome some of the budgetary limitations.
