Goofs:
Continuity: The first time Dr. Temple visits the petrol station, as the blonde attendant stands alongside his jalopy flirting with him, her gloved right hand alternates between resting on the bonnet outside the glass windscreen (with Temple's left hand holding the steering wheel) and grasping the steering wheel through the-now glassless!-windscreen (with Temple's hand off the wheel).See more »
Quotes:
Dr. Curtis Temple:Why that's impossible! No propulsion system on Earth could possibly send a rocket to the Moon and back in 24 hours.
Richard Arden:The system we employ was not created on Earth.

He should have had his head examined--Earlier!, 10 May 2006
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

This movie is passable at best. It has an interesting plot: some aliens are trying to find a way to survive by building a base on earth. They are seen as hostile because, for heaven's sake they take over people's brains and use them to construct their stuff. A scientist who has had brain surgery and has a silver plate in his head, is immune to this. Later, a buddy of his puts a colander on his head with a silver plate and is able to infiltrate the "evil forces." Along the way, our hero, who suffered his initial brain damage in a car accident, drives around in a classic roadster (he must be trying not to be conspicuous) which he is always parking somewhere and setting the hand brake. He flies in the faces of the aliens who seem to tolerate him a lot more than they should. His girlfriend, who finished in third place in the Lucille Ball look-alike contest is a scientist who is carrying the soul of an alien around with her. There is so much coming and going, we never quite understand what the heck they're doing. Only that they seem to make frequent trips to the moon. The ending is full of emotion and good will and, yes, overacting. Captain Kirk would have been proud. Sometimes you see a film that has a good skeleton plot and with a few bucks and a little imagination, it could have been OK. What is lacks is the human element.
