Invasion of the bulbous heads
27 February 2006 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Invasion of the Saucer Men is just typical of the movies AIP came out with during the 1950's, aliens vs teenagers.

In this one, a young couple accidentally run over an alien but its hand comes alive and terrorises people. The local farmer doesn't like the teenagers using his land for snogging in their cars. More aliens then appear and kill one of the teens with an overdose of alcohol as revenge for their mate being killed. A flying saucer then blows up with the military in attendance and the aliens are done away with at the end by light, their weakness. With a drunken bull.

The best thing about the movie are those alien creatures, with their hideous looking bulbous heads.

The cast is lead by Steven Terrell and is joined by some familiar faces from sci-fi B movies: Gloria Castillo (Teenage Monster), Raymond Hatton (The Day the World Ended), Russ Bender (It Conquered the World) and Ed Nelson (Attack Of the Crab Monsters). With Frank Gorshen (The Ridler from Batman).

Invasion of the Saucer Men is essential viewing for all sci-fi fans, even just for those creatures. Great fun.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
