Storyline

In Norrisville, Bill Farrell leaves his bachelor party on the eve of his marriage with Marge Bradley. He is abducted by an alien that takes his shape and marries Marge on the next day. Marge feels something strange with Bill and one year later she realizes that he is a totally different man. One day, Marge follows Bill and he goes to the woods; she finds that he is an alien and sees his spacecraft. She tries to tell to Washington and to the FBI, but the aliens have dominated key people in town that do not allow any sort of communication with the exterior world. What is the intention of the alien invasion? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Grabs your attention fast and just doesn't let go!
16 October 2004 | by (Mansfield, CT USA) – See all my reviews

'I Married A Monster From Outer Space' should be ranked as one of the great 50s sci-fi/ horror films. I was really surprised at how well done this movie was. I guess I was expecting a Ed Wood type film, which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing, but what I saw, was an above average, well acted and directed movie. This film was surprisingly well done. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It held my attention from start to finish. Creepy alien monsters keep popping up throughout the movie. It had a sense of suspense running throughout the film. This movie grabs your attention fast and just doesn't let go. It was great. 'I Married A Monster From Outer Space' is a must see for all 50s sci-fi, horror, monster movies fans.
