British Are The Best Breeding Stock
6 November 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The title role in Devil Girl From Mars is played by Patricia Laffan who is probably best known to film viewers as the sultry and evil Poppaea in Quo Vadis. That is all except those who favor camp science fiction. And this film is camp from the opening credits.

As is the normal Mars is the infinitely superior planet to Earth, but they've divided their society by sex and the men lost the war to the women years ago. In being enslaved for generations, something's taken the old mating urge out of the male Martians (think about what happened in Zardoz). Patricia Laffan has been sent to Earth to bring back breeding stock and apparently her target is London.

But she collides with a meteor and is forced to make a landing in the highlands of Scotland to make repairs. The ship lands on the property of the Bonnie Charlie Inn, a nice country establishment with a few guests, some of whom happen to be scientists.

The film other than its Martian connection plays like one of those old closed circle English murder mysteries and this select group of people are going to try to save Earth from being enslaved for their male members.

The film is a laugh riot with all the cast playing it so absolutely straight that it comes out funny. Patricia Laffan in that tight get up is an unforgettable sight. Could mating with her and others like her be all that bad?

No great production values went into this, but someone in creating it had a great sense of humor.
