A remake of "I Married a Monster from Outer Space"
9 September 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is typical of a made-for-TV movie. A remake of 1958's "I Married a Monster from Outer Space," it comes off second best. It is nowhere near as slick, well written or well acted as the original.

Tom Tryon and Gloria Talbott were far more effective in the lead parts than former soap star Richard Burgi and TV vet Susan Walters. To be fair, Walters' acting was adequate, but Burgi's uninspired performance cast a shroud over the whole production.

On the plus side, effective use was made of the technology, and the FX were not, for the most part, overdone.

If you have a couple of hours to kill, this movie will do the job. If you like the genre and want to see a better film, rent the original.
