Storyline

Atomic scientist/pilot Doug Martin is missing after his plane crashes on an reconnaissance mission after a nuclear test. Miraculously appearing unhurt at the base later, he is given sodium amethol, but authorities are skeptical of his story that he was captured by aliens determined to conquer the Earth with giant monsters and insects. Martin vows to use existing technology to destroy them. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)

Trivia

Contrary to the usual practice in the 1950s, the credits appear at the end rather than at the beginning of the movie. See more »

Goofs

When the alien Denab receives the report from his observer on the surface and shows Dr. Martin the calculations (on what appears to be a piece of aluminum foil), the calculations are written in English and use Earth mathematical signs, which hardly seems likely for an internal report for beings from the planet Astron-Delta.

What a scheme those aliens had
16 April 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Before Seventh Heaven, before Mission Impossible, before even Fury, Peter Graves spent a lot of his time doing science fiction films, some of the best and some of the worst. This one falls in the latter category.

This was a cheaply based low budget thriller with no thrills where Graves has been monitoring atomic bomb tests out in the New Mexico desert by air. Some nasty old aliens are out in the caverns laying plans for a billion of their people to come take over the earth from the folks who live here now. I won't say more, but it involves a scheme of creating monsters who will destroy mankind and then the aliens will destroy the monsters without spilling too much human blood.

The miracle here is that Peter Graves as an actor had a career after some of the films he appeared in back in his salad days. This is one great example of what he survived.

Stock footage from other films, cheap black and white photography, imbecilic plot. Peter Graves looks stoically earnest throughout though. I guess that is a tribute to his talent.

Ed Wood would have looked down on this one.
