Basic
29 August 2015 | by drystyxSee all my reviews

Although dated 1965, this sci-fi outer space flick has a definite fifties look.

It looks much like a McCarthy era film very basic, with a very basic, standard backdrop, and yet it has a 1965 message of anti McCarthy distrust of authority.

That's fairly fresh, because we get the black and white basic look of the hard nosed authoritarian era, but in this movie, it is the commander of the unit in space who becomes deranged, though it be by a space fungus, still he becomes the unruly one.

The story flows well, and there are some leggy gals strutting their stuff for the young boys.

An interesting combination of two eras, taking the best of both eras. The stark, unassuming sets that let us enjoy the story (fifties style) and the notation that authority figures aren't always perfect (sixties).
