All of the film's main "Production Associates" (financiers) appeared in the movie under assumed names: Bryan G. Pearson (Thor, as Bryan Grant), Ursula Pearson - uncredited (Hilda, as Ursula Hansen), Tom Graeff (Joe Rogers, as Tom Lockyear), and Charles Robert Kaltenthaler (Derek, as David Love). Gene Sterling, also listed as a "Production Associate" makes a cameo as "The Leader." See more »
This is a very unintentionally funny MST3K style scifi film from the late 50s. Aliens, modeled on a splicing of Nazis with those pesky Commy Ruskies who everyone was afraid of at the time, decide to use earth as a breeding ground for their crop of "Gorgons", animals that are harvested for food and then brought back to their home planet for consumption.
Apparently, over the years, this alien civilization has devolved from a civilization of families into an authoritarian planetary military camp in which family units do not exist and thus there are no parents, siblings, etc. Everyone is just a slave to the state. Plus this alien civilization considers itself the master race. Earth is found to be the ideal place for the Gorgon to grow until harvesting, growing from the size of a lobster to a gargantuan size.
However, one alien, Derek, has read about how things once were on his planet, and rebels at the idea of leaving the Gorgon there to grow in number and size, wiping out the inhabitants of the planet. He escapes from his alien cadre, and the malevolent Thor is left behind to capture him (turns out Derek is The Leader's son though he doesn't know it) if he can, kill him if he has no alternative. Since Thor just killed a dog for the fun of it, you figure he'll look for any excuse to kill Derek.
The dead dog is the catalyst for what comes later. Derek, feeling sad for the unnecessary killing of the harmless dog, takes the ID showing his address and shows up in town. Wouldn't you know the dead dog's owners have a room for rent. Wouldn't you know they have an attractive age appropriate daughter who looks something like a young Drew Barrymore in a bad wig. Of course Derek rents the room.
Evil Thor quickly finds a ride into town - let this be a lesson that you should never pick up hitchhikers, especially ones in weird uniforms. Come to think of it, don't rent rooms to strangers in weird uniforms either. Meanwhile, the original Gorgon is in a cave, growing in size and in potential danger to humankind.
How will this all turn out? Watch and find out. Don't let the low rating fool you. The acting is wooden, but the film tells you something about small town and suburban life and the good intent we assumed of strangers that we have completely and justifiably lost over the last 60 years, and gives you a feel for what people were afraid of back then - some malevolent force far away, not the lone nuts that walk among us today. I'd recommend it. Just realize you are dealing with, what was from the start, a low budget production.
