Goofs

When the train car becomes decoupled, the car with the two men is now supposedly traveling backwards. However, the scenery visible in the window is still moving in the same direction - it should have changed direction with the travel of the train car. See more »

One of a kind
25 January 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now here's a real oddity. Made before the British scifi/horror boom of the late 50s, this eccentric film mixes gruesome scientific experiments with farcical comedy, set in a fictitious Iron Curtain state. And one of the stars, playing a straight role, is Leslie Phillips. So is it any good? Well the clash of styles is somewhat disconcerting, but the film is attractively photographed and the action and horror scenes well staged. Some talented personnel worked on it ; the likes of Ted Moore and John Box, plus John Gilling who went on to do some good Hammer horrors. "The Gamma People" isn't quite in that league but still merits a viewing.
