Prof. Erling and his financial backer Victor build a prototype time machine to snatch objects from the past. Latest find, a statuette, radiometrically dates to 5200 AD! When this draws colleague Richard Hedges to the island lab, Erling reveals that 20th-century objects put in the machine seem to be "traded" for analogous future objects by intelligent life. And on the sly, Victor's been trying to get a living visitor. Does the future need help, or is the present in danger? Written by

Hey, the night scenes were even hard to make out on the 1962 Zenith black and white TV, but it still scared us so much that my sister and I couldn't wait to be frightened by it the following year or whenever it was shown again and it was definitely tops on our scary movie list. I mean come on, Sorry, Wrong Number(1948) was pretty scary back then. But this hideous looking creature stole the beautiful nurse's face and the scene where she confronts the guy in the hospital bed is chilling indeed. This is one horror flick that has managed to stick in my mind for forty some odd years. Its not like it won any academy awards but neither did Hitchcock.
