Storyline

A pair of crooks (Kenne Duncan and Jeanne Tatum) take over the country house of a geologist (Robert Clarke) and his trusty dog. They have kidnapped an heiress (Marilyn Harvey) where they plan to hold her until the ransom is collected. Soon they hear an explosion in the woods nearby that turns out to be a spaceship containing a sexy blonde alien with a skintight metallic suit, high heels, lipstick, and incredible eyebrows (Shirley Kilpatrick). Don't let her touch you in any way! The plot is advanced by an off-screen narrator. Written by alfiehitchie

Gotta love that She Monster
13 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those so horrible they are awesome horror/scifi movies from the late 50's. I remember watching this on the Friday night Horror movie "Dimension 16", 10:30 Friday nights based out of Joplin, Missouri-"Do you know where your children are....HA HA HA" (scary laughter) anyway, this movie as a child scared the pants off of me, the sight of the glowing She Monster from outer space lurking around in the woods was pretty heady stuff when you are 6 years old. I was able to get it when it came out on DVD and while as an adult I can see how thin the plot is, how bad the acting is and how low budget and the sets are, it still brought back wonderful memories of hiding under the blankets with my sister after watching the eerily sexy She Monster. I read somewhere that the female lead was actually a stripper and the reason you always see her backing away from the camera (no ass shots) is that the costume was so tight she split the rear end out and the budget was so low they couldn't or wouldn't repair the costume. Don't know if that's a true story but I hope it is as it makes this campy little classic even campier.
