Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead.Written by

Dr. Peter Burton, dressed in a radiation suit, tells Dr. Sheppard and Joanna Merritt to stay back as he enters a radioactive hot zone in the chemistry lab, but Sheppard and Merritt follow him in anyway. When Peter carries out a dead scientist - dead from radiation poisoning - Sheppard and Merritt stay behind with a Geiger counter to seek out the radiation source, neither wearing protective gear. Peter soon returns with Dr. Van Ness. Peter discovers and secures a deadly radioactive isotope, but Peter is still the only one wearing a protective suit. The others stand about three to four feet away, watching quietly as Peter's actions expose them to lethal levels of radiation. See more »
Now from this point on, photoelectric cells sound a warning when unauthorized personnel enter the corridor. Oh, and there are hidden television cameras along the ceiling.
You mean to say they're watching us?
All the time.
They're interfering with my impulses.

Well, I can't mention them. They're unauthorized, but they're nice that way.

"Gog" sure scared the hell out of all of us "Saturday-matinee" habituees in '54. The sound, the monkey experiment, the levels below ground, the radiated plant, the desert mirror scene, and of course, the two flame-throwing robots, Gog and Magog. Ivan Tors (of TV's Science Fiction Theater) did a damned good job in keeping us kids on the edge of our seats. Have a faded bootleg copy. Sure wish that the current copyright owners would issue a restored copy on VHS in the near future.
