Trivia

In the United States, all of the advertising material, including the trailer, gave the title of the film as "Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster." The main title on the film itself is "Frankenstein Meets the Spacemonster." 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 »

IGNORE the low rating on this 60's sci-fi classic. Excellent entertainment!
15 December 2006 | by (Subcrust Base 955 - Venus) – See all my reviews

This is a really low-budget b/w movie but it is very entertaining. This movie has really aged well. Many sci-fi fans that see this movie for the first time will know what I'm talking about. I saw this 1965 movie for the first time in 2006 and loved it. I guess this one fits into the category "so bad it's great." But I consider this a damn good effort, especially considering the budget.

The movie is tons of laughs. The alien invaders have an Uncle Fester-looking adviser to a hot-looking queen, who looks kind of like Barbara Steele. They come invading Earth and run into a cyborg ("Frank") built by the good old USA to explore space. This movie even has a helicopter air assault in vintage transport choppers! AWESOME! They had to send the Army to help the cyborg defeat the bat-people aliens and their weapon of last resort - a fanged monster that the aliens themselves can barely control!!!!! This movie has EVERYTHING and any fan of classic sci-fi and 60's bikini party horror should really love it.
