Storyline

Strange goings on at the site of an experimental underwater laboratory as a mysterious object of unknown origin is detected in the area. A group of researchers investigate and come face to face with the object, a large automated extraterrestrial probe. They board the craft and discover a small object at first considered to be some sort of instrument package, which they take back to the lab for closer inspection. It is then that events take a turn for the worse. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

The creature from the black lagoon in space
14 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Destination Inner Space is our own Earth's oceans and some folks from another planet are showing an interest in it as a place to live. A group of scientists headed by Gary Merrill who live in an under water sea lab discovers a phenomenon of incredible size and the Navy sends Commander Scott Brady to investigate.

The usual conflict between scientists and the military plays out with Brady and Merrill. In addition Brady has a conflict with another of the of the sea lab's crew Mike Road.

The phenomenon turns out to be a space ship that settles in one of the crevices under the ocean and it's containing pods that are in a deep freeze. Stupidly the crew takes one aboard and it hatches into a cousin of the creature from the black lagoon though light years smarter. After that the film becomes almost a rerun of the classic, The Thing.

Serving as decoration are scientists Sheree North and Wende Wagner. That's for the male audience to get them to the film if they're not science fiction fans.

Destination Inner Space though the science may not be creditable it's still good fodder in the fiction department.
