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)

And the winner is...
17 February 2001 | by (Annandale, VA) – See all my reviews

Were some of these low-budget 1950s sci-fi flicks intentionally competing to see who could come up with the most ridiculous looking aliens? When it comes to getting laughs, the bug-eyed beetle-browed killers from space are second only to Corman's conquering turnip. But it's a close second, and they get a good deal more speaking lines and screen time. Modern film makers actually trying to make their monsters amusing have never been able to create aliens as hilarious as this. Other than that, however, there isn't really anything to recommend in this rather mundane effort.
