Storyline

Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

Dr. Peter Burton, dressed in a radiation suit, tells Dr. Sheppard and Joanna Merritt to stay back as he enters a radioactive hot zone in the chemistry lab, but Sheppard and Merritt follow him in anyway. When Peter carries out a dead scientist - dead from radiation poisoning - Sheppard and Merritt stay behind with a Geiger counter to seek out the radiation source, neither wearing protective gear. Peter soon returns with Dr. Van Ness. Peter discovers and secures a deadly radioactive isotope, but Peter is still the only one wearing a protective suit. The others stand about three to four feet away, watching quietly as Peter's actions expose them to lethal levels of radiation. See more »

Confusing and frightening for a young kid
18 July 2005 | by (Renton, Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

I was perhaps seven or eight years old when I saw "Gog" in the 1950s. The story was only somewhat comprehensible to me; although I understood that the laboratory was some type of research facility, it was unclear to me why things were going haywire. The jet flying overhead was a mystery: where did it come from, who was in it, and what was it doing?

The scientific devices were fun to watch, especially the "ray" weapon. Being unable to grasp the concept of sabotage, I didn't appreciate why the device was not operating as designed. But what had the biggest effect on me was the action of the robots. Their running amok in the lab scared me to death. Maybe I picked up on the terror of the lab's occupants.

The combination of confusion and fear made watching the movie (on TV) unpleasant but fascinating. It would be fun to see "Gog" now, knowing what I do about the plot, the actors, and the Cold War era in which it was made.
