Trivia

This film uses several chunks of footage from Doomsday Machine (1972), including re-dubbed and uncredited clips of Casey Kasem (as a flight controller), Grant Williams and Henry Wilcoxon. That movie, in turn, took most of its exterior effects (at least the ones used in this film) from Gorath (1962). See more »

Goofs

In the exterior space scenes, the 'stars' clearly move and even swing back and forth, revealing them to be small lights hanging in the background. See more »

"And do not worry, we are Oriental, not Chinese!"
2 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Doesn't anyone remember that the beginning of this movie had the hero scientist being chased around a crater where the space ship crashed on Earth by crazy Chinese (or evidently some other Oriental) spies? And the girl spends the whole second half of the film floating around the space ship in her underwear - a lovely touch. You can't rate this kind of masterpiece on the same scale as other movies. It has all the wacky appeal of a painting of Elvis on black velvet or a recording of William Shatner "singing." I saw this movie fifteen years ago and just had a dream about it last night (which is what made me look it up here) and that's extra disturbing. What do you think that's about? Sorry - ten line minimum.
