Goofs

The reason for the design of a wheel type space station is to generate gravity as seen in the movie 2001 in that the crew lives and works on what would be the inside of the outer wall of the station. In this movie it appears that the crew is not on the outer walls because the interior shots show curved walls and flat floors. See more »

Mutiny in Outer Space is well worth your time!!
29 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shot in black and white, Mutiny in Outer Space one of the lesser known 50's sci-fi, probably because it wasn't made until 1965, but worry not

  • it is made in the same mold as most other 50's sci-fi in regards to


script, acting and special effects. An Italian/USA production with all English speaking actors - no annoying dubbing here folks.

The special effects includes ship launches, dockings, space station shots, a killer fungus, and some rather convincing makeup effects for on contaminated crew members. All work well to serve the story, just remember these are still pre-Star Wars effects and in alignment with what you have see in other 50's sci-fi...

I find this film to be much more entertaining than the supposed classic with similar storyline 'It! the Terror from Beyond Space' made nearly ten years earlier.

Well worth your time seeking this flick out. The transfer available is magnificent and much better than some of the commercial 50's sci-fi titles out there!!

By way of comparison, MIOS is much more engaging than other 50's fare such as The Unknown Terror, The Flame Barrier, or Curucu-Beast of the Amazon. Check it out!!!
