Storyline

In California, an old man (Bela Lugosi) grieves the loss of his wife (Vampira) and on the next day he also dies. However, the space soldier Eros and her mate Tanna use an electric device to resurrect them both and the strong Inspector Clay (Tor Johnson) that was murdered by the couple. Their intention is not to conquer Earth but to stop mankind from developing the powerful bomb "Solobonite" that would threaten the universe. When the population of Hollywood and Washington DC sees flying saucers on the sky, a colonel, a police lieutenant, a commercial pilot, his wife and a policeman try to stop the aliens. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When the police leave the station house to go to the graveyard, it is night and they pile into a black 1953 Ford. A shot of the police car driving on the road to the cemetery - in daylight - reveals that it has changed into a 1957 Ford (and just before the shot ends the car pulls over to the side of the road and the occupants start to get out, although neither the cemetery nor Jeff's house is anywhere in sight). A few seconds later, as the car pulls into the cemetery, it has metamorphosized into a black-and-white 1956 Ford, and it is nighttime again. See more »

This movie maybe be awful, but it's the best!
4 January 2001 | by Marcey13See all my reviews

I really love this movie, I have seen it so many times, spotting all the mistakes. But I love it, it entertains, it's funny. Ed Wood was a good film maker, because he made movies because he loves doing it, not because he wanted to make money. The way he made his movies was amazing, the things he went through, he was a legend. I love this movie so much it's in my DVD collection. 10/10 from me!!!! Ed Wood rules!!
