Trivia

Even though the character Marilyn Hanold played was named Princess Marcuzan in the credits, her name is never mentioned throughout the film. She is only referred to as "princess". See more »

Goofs

When the space monster is advancing during the end of the film, there's a brief shot of him from below where fluorescent lights may be seen in the ceiling. It's kind of hard to believe fluorescents would be present in a space ship of alien design. See more »

Low-Budget but fun Schlock.
4 October 2005 | by (Morgantown, WV) – See all my reviews

A low budget, low brain-power film that is nevertheless quite entertaining. This film was a staple of late night and afternoon horror/SF movie shows when I was growing up. I never missed it. Disappointing at first, since there is no "Frankenstein" to speak of, only the android "Frank". But the Spacemonster is low-budget gruesome. The crash-burned android looks sufficiently frightening but is still sympathetic. The Martian invaders are something out of a low-grade exploitation film and make me giggle every time I watch the film. If you're looking for production values and crisp scripting, you probably ought to look somewhere else. If you're looking for a light-weight romp, something to swill soda and eat popcorn to on a rainy evening, then you could do much worse.
