1950s B-movie tribute
13 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

MICRO MINDS is a 1950s B-movie tribute episode of MONSTERS. In it, a young female scientist keeps alien microorganisms in a fish tank in her laboratory, only to suffer a catastrophe when one of the creatures suddenly grows to giant size and proceeds to threaten her very life.

The whole look of the episode is cheap, cheesy and cheerful, and to hammer the point home, '50s B-movie actor Troy Donahue has a supporting role in the production. The most fun thing about this is the look of the alien at the end, which seems to have been based on the creatures in the British sci-fi classic ISLAND OF TERROR. Unrealistic, yes, but certainly enthusiastic and fun to watch.
