Corman - Arkoff - Nicholson with Lower Than Usual Budget
A dysfunctional family operating an isolated date farm in the California desert is threatened by the arrival of an extra-terrestrial.
This film was made by American Releasing Corporation, the company that later became American International Pictures. This puts it firmly in the realm of Sam Arkoff, John Nicholson and Roger Corman. Corman produced this picture, and allegedly he helped direct it. Furthermore, it was apparently done on a budget of only $29,000 and using a tea kettle as the monster. A tea kettle? Yes.
Sadly, it is rather disappointing as nothing much happens. Not even throwing Dick Sargent in the mix can save things. For Corman or AIP enthusiasts, it is a must see, but beyond that it does not have all that much to offer.
