I’ve opined in the past that had I to pick one film to represent ’50s sci-fi, it might well be this one. This is odd, in that in many ways it’s not very representational of the breed. It features a variety of monsters instead of a single menace, and there’s no atomic radiation involved. Even so, the feel of the film is so entirely ’50s to me that this might well remain my choice. Quality-wise, it’s right in the middle, sort of cheesy but well executed none the less. It remains one of the most satisfying selections I’ve played at T-Fest, and is probably the one that I’d first repeat, if it ever came to that (although clearly it won’t).
