Quotes

[first lines]
Dr. Nadir: We continue to hear modulated hydrogen frequency signal of 21 centimeters, Princess.
Princess Marcuzan: What does that mean?
Dr. Nadir: We're not quite certain, Princess. But it is definitely the same signal we have been following since we left our planet. The source of the signals is the planet that we are observing on the telescanner now. These transmissions indicate some intelligent life.
Princess Marcuzan: Let us move in for a closer look.

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.
