Trivia

AIP gave director Larry Buchanan the script for Day the World Ended (1955) to use for this film. The result is an almost line-for-line remake. See more »

Goofs

John Ramsey takes away Tim's moonshine jug, and throws it to break it. The jug is not actually seen hitting the ground and breaking, but we do see the broken bits of the jug after it has been broken. Yet, there is silence - no sound of the breaking jug is heard. See more »

Quotes

Mickey Brown: Yeah, that's right. Now you know. You and your dime store stuff. You're cheap. A cheapie. I didn't know who cheap you were until I met her.
Jada: She hates your guts! You're cheap to her! She'd rather kill herself first!

It's been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that's true, then Roger Corman must feel very flattered. AIP's 1967 "In The Year 2889" is an almost word-for-word remake of Corman's campy 1956 "The Day The World Ended" only with - would you believe? - worse acting, worse direction, worse editing, and a Halloween mask monster. Larry Buchanan did such a terrible job with this neutron bomb of a movie that it's almost painful to sit through. On the other hand, the house is nicer and it was shot in color. Paul Petersen reprises the role of Steve, originally played by Richard Denning, but is so wooden in some scenes that it's hard to believe that this is the same guy who performed so well on "The Donna Reed Show". Incidentally, we have nothing against Mr. Petersen who, after being dumped on by Hollywood, went on to found "A Minor Affair", a very worthwhile organization to aid other child stars. But, back to the movie: we had an uncle who was a wine taster, and he once said that if you took excrement, put it in a bottle with a nice label, aged it for ten years, when you uncorked it you'd still have excrement. Corman's original film might have been junk, but at least it was entertaining junk, and Paul Blaisdell's monster was, if nothing else, imaginative. The "monster" in this film is so unimpressive that it's hard to describe, unless you've seen "Fire Maidens of Outer Space" which, on reflection, compares well with this loser, having about the same production values. In short, no matter how starved you may be for entertainment, don't even consider watching this awful, awful movie.
