Not exactly the scariest alien monster I've ever seen.
The Astounding She Monster isn't exactly the scariest alien monster I've ever seen. The monster consists of an attractive woman in a one piece skin tight costume that glows. In addition to the glow, she constantly goes in and out of focus to make her look more alien in appearance. This is another low budget movie from the 50s that isn't very good and isn't so bad that it falls under the category of "It's so bad it's good". It's a 62 minute film and that's about as long as it should be. If it were drawn out any longer, it could only get worse. I'm not sorry I watched it and I know I'll not forget the movie, but I am hard pressed to recommend it to anyone except those wanting to see a cheap, low budget 50s Sci-Fi movie. Actually there are plenty of people out there that want to see just that. To get a complete taste of 50s Sci-Fi genre movies, you should see a couple movies such as this. This is an example of what was out there at the theaters and drive ins. It's not a good classic movie but it sure isn't anywhere near the worst.
