An alien agent from the distant planet Davana is sent to Earth via a high-tech matter transporter. There, he terrorizes Southern California in an attempt to acquire blood for his dying race, the result of a devastating nuclear war.
Scientists investigate what appears to be a meteorite that crashes into the ocean. After a few days and nights of mysterious lights and noises, a giant machine comes out of the ocean. The machine is the creation of an alien race, that is trying to syphon energy from earth. A true classic, in that it is so different from anything in the time period. To this day, nothing else has come out like it.Written by
Although he was fourth billed, George O'Hanlon, who played Arnie, was the most familiar face in the cast. For more than a decade, he was the star of the popular long running series of "Joe McDoakes" (aka "Behind the Eight Ball") comedy shorts which ended production the previous year. See more »
When the Mexican Air Force planes attack Kronos, they are clearly shown to be P-51 Mustangs (with V-12 in-line engines) in the shots shown approaching the target. When the attack begins, they change to completely different types of aircraft with radial engines, probably F4F Wildcats or F6F Hellcats. See more »

This film is a great piece of science fiction. I especially loved the fact that every time that Kronos is attacked it seemed to get stronger. You also get good comic relief from George O'Hanlon, better known to most people as the voice of George Jetson.
