Crooks take over the country house of a geologist after they have kidnapped an heiress where they plan to hold her until the ransom is collected. Soon, they hear an explosion in the woods nearby that turns out to be a spaceship containing a glowing blonde alien with a skintight metallic suit, high heels, lipstick, and incredible eyebrows. She kills with her touch, which contains radium poisoning.Written by
An absurd introductory narrative precedes THE ASTOUNDING SHE-MONSTER! Then, another narrator takes over, telling us what we're witnessing on screen. The abduction of a socialite, made so much better by voice-over rather than any real dialogue. The scene shifts to the wilderness, where geologist, Dick Cutler (Robert Clarke- THE HIDEOUS SUN DEMON) walks his dog, unaware that nearby, a ship has landed. From this craft comes the shimmering alien of the title. Not only does she shimmer, but she seems to warp, as though made of some ethereal liquid. Either that, or she's imbibed too much space juice. Who really knows for sure? She saunters... no, sachets along, like an alien in need of a restroom. Still shimmering. Meanwhile, the kidnappers and their hostage arrive, all of this happening close to Cutler's remote cabin. Soon, all will meet together. What are the odds of such a confluence of various characters and events occurring? Perhaps the she-monster knows. Uh oh! The sachet-ing she-monster has the space voodoo, touch of death! She wanders... no, meanders through the forest, using her hands of deadliness! Who will survive this awfulness? Fans of all that is movie muck, rejoice! This is your day of deliverance! EXTRA CREDIT FOR: #1- The tough-talking crooks and their drunken moll. #2- The game of "in-and-out-of-the-cabin", where everyone leaves and re-enters several times, even after it appears they've escaped the horror! This is highly entertaining flotsam...
