The dogs who attack the undisguised aliens near the end of the film were initially too scared to approach the costumed actors. The dogs were then acclimated to the presence of the suited actors - perhaps too well, for when the time came to shoot the scene of the dogs attacking the aliens, the dogs didn't attack the aliens, but jumped playfully around and on them instead. The dogs were then trained to go for the "breathing tubes" on the alien costumes. Apparently, the actors playing the aliens had to guide the dogs to attack the "breathing tubes." See more »
After the newlyweds depart the church, they are driving down a country road. Just as they are about to pass a mysterious alien figure, the shadow of a boom mic can be briefly seen on the road as the camera traverses with the motion of the vehicle. See more »
A classic, just don't get swayed by the "B" feature title.
I rate this right up there with other 50s sci-fi classics, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Day the Earth Stood Still, and Them. The title makes you think you're in for a radioactive-teens-with-fangs-from-outerspace bomb. This is anything but. Excellent acting, tight direction, believable dialog, and truly creepy aliens give this a black and white thumbs up. Remade recently in a faithful adaptation, but despite (or because of) the color photography and bigger budget, this 50s version remains the better bet to watch.
