The only comment I can add to the near-unanimous panning of the film by other IMDb critics is this. Remember how when you were very young, you saw some sci-fi or horror film that scared the daylights out of you, and then when you saw it again many years later you wondered how you could have possibly found it so scary? Well, this isn't one of those films! As a pre-teenager, I used to stay up Saturday nights to watch "Chiller Theater", a weekly showing of the "best" that the 1950's had to offer by way of Grade Z (or less) sci-fi or horror films, occasionally livened up by humorous commentary by the host, Zacherley. Some of those films were minor gems in their way. But even as a prepubescent fan, I could spot a dog of a film when I saw one, and "Killers from Space" was identified once and for all as a howler even then.
