In a Scottish inn, the owners, employees and guests are reunited in the bar. Our of the blue, a flying saucer lands nearby and a woman dressed in black leather like a dominatrix with a cape arrives in the bar armed with a ray-gun. She explains that she is Nyah from Mars, and she was heading to London. However her spacecraft collided with an airplane and was damaged; therefore she had to land to repair the saucer. She also explains that she is looking for men to breed her female race since the male population is dying after warfare between males and females and they need offspring. Nyah has the robot Chani to help her to capture men, but she wants that one of the men volunteers to go with her to Mars. Who might be the volunteer?Written by

The arrival of the spaceship knocks out the electricity supply to the telephone and the car ignition. However, it does not affect the domestic supply to the hotel since the captives try to electrocute Nyah by wiring up the door handle. See more »

Decent special effects and a few interesting scenes here and there but it moves at a snail's pace!
I love old 50s sci-fi films--both the really good ones and the really bad ones. The good ones make you think and are very entertaining and also sport decent budgets (such as WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL or THIS ISLAND EARTH). The bad ones are so silly, so inept and so stupid that they make me laugh and are great for parties (such as PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE or TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE). The problem here is that while this film isn't good, it's good enough and slow enough that it isn't good for a laugh and isn't really entertaining enough to make it worth a look either. It's a real shame, though, as the film did have some good special effects--with a silly looking space ship by today's standards, but looking awfully good for 1954. Plus, I really liked the Devil Girl--her outfit and style was, in a strange way, kind of sexy. But, unfortunately, the acting was the pits and many of the actors' strong Scottish accents and lack of subtitles made watching this a bit of a chore for this American. With a healthy injection of energy and perhaps if it had taken a less serious tone it could have been worthwhile. As it is, it's a very talky film you'd probably like to pass on and find something better or a lot worse!
