Not sic-fi, sci-fact! ~!!
13 November 2001 | by (Fayetteville, GA) – See all my reviews

I ordered a prerecorded tape of this movie based on the recommendation provided by other viewers, and I was extremely impressed by the movie. The tape is great, and the movie is very impressive.

Get this one if you have the slightest interest in sci-fi movies of the 1950s. This is a factual treatment of the very concepts which the films from that magical decade dabbled in so imaginatively.

Plan on watching it as a double feature with `Earth vs. the Flying Saucers'. You won't be disappointed . . .
