This campy 1950s sci-fi film has turned into a real cult classic. The film is so bad - horrible special effects and terrible dialog - that it is a hoot to watch. It's so terrible it's fun to watch. Instead of scary you, the corny dialog just makes you laugh out loud.
I forget whether this film was made to be serious but at this point, it's like an Ed Wood film: so terrible that you laugh through the entire thing, making it a good comedy. As a bonus for guys, you get to ogle Allison Hayes, who looks good at any height!
I am amazed this movie is not available on DVD. If it wasn't well-known, they certainly wouldn't have bothered with a re-make.
