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 his mate Tanna use an electric device to resurrect them both and the strong Inspector Clay who was murdered by the couple.

When the population of Hollywood and Washington DC sees flying saucers in the sky, a colonel, a police lieutenant, a commercial pilot, his wife and a policeman try to stop the aliens.Written by

When the film was released in Hungary in the 2000s, it was given a deliberately horrible dub, recorded not with professional voice talent but with random employees of the DVD distributing company, all of whom could barely act. This was made to make the movie even more laughable. See more »
After seeing the film ED WOOD, I was compelled to rent this film. Granted that it was poorly made despite Wood's intentions behind the production that were both honest and sincere, and it comes across more like an elementary school play, but the attraction to the film is almost like the attraction one has to slowing down on the highway to see an auto accident.
In every scene, there is something wrong. Misplaced props, bad lighting, continuity errors, implausible dialogue, almost a training film on how NOT to make a film.
Edward D. Wood Jr. had ambition, vision, determination, charisma and imagination. What he didn't have was talent. Instead of being shunned by the world's film aficionados, he has been posthumously embraced as a "holy fool" of cinema. One whose sincere efforts came out horribly twisted to the point of absurdity.
Yes, the spaceship looks as if it came from an IKEA catalog, the acting is so wooden you risk splinters, the plot and continuity has holes you can pilot a battleship through and the production vales are so threadbare, it makes THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT look like STAR WARS. But the film has a charm to itself. A funhouse mirror vision of science fiction, where the distortions are the attraction.
