Storyline

A teenage couple making out in the woods accidentally runs over an alien creature with their car. The creature's hand falls off, but it comes alive, and, with an eye growing out of it, begins to stalk the teens. Meanwhile, Joe the town drunk wants to store the body in his refrigerator, but some of the alien's buddies inject alcohol into his system, and Joe dies of an overdose.

Neat effects (still) in formula 50's sci-fi.
21 November 1998 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

The same plot with only the type of monster changed was used in the following years run-away hit, The Blob, which was Steve McQueen's first major role.

Here we have Paul Blaisdell's alien creature creations which are quite inventive. (Blaisdell did The She Creature, effects for Not of This Earth and much much more).

It's the old worn formula of the kids who tell the authorities about the creatures from outerspace who've landed and no one will believe them.

The creatures are able to detach their hands, which have eyeballs, and sharp hypo like fingernails which can punture tires or inject people with one heck of a high alcohol content.

It's great fun for 50's monster lovers.
