The Atomic Submarine is atmospheric and creepy, especially when out in the frozen wastes of the North Pole.
A lot of stock footage didn't spoil my enjoyment, although we see different submarines. Good performances from 50s B movie regulars like Arthur Franz and Tom Conway keep the movie going. The monster in the flying saucer has to be seen to be believed. Great stuff, considering the low budget.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
