It doesn't take long for someone to make a welcome visitor to feel not so welcome.

And in this case, it's a normal good guy, William Schallert, playing the villain. As earthlings Robert Clarke, Raymond Bond, Margaret Clarke and Schallert discover an unknown planet heading into the direction of earth, they prepare for the best or the worst. When a lone creature from the earth man named planet X does show up, all but Schallert treat the visiting and nonspeaking being with sensitivity. Schallert, obviously a suspicious type, takes drastic measures to get into the visitor's mind, even going as far as physically attacking it.

This is 1950's sci-fi without the camp, without ridiculous subplots that really don't belong, and without a ridiculous looking creature. There's nothing but the story of conflicts in humanity over what's the best way to deal with the unknown, and a theory that we shouldn't shoot first and wonder about the alternative later. It's moody and deliberately slow, subtly fascinating, and more intelligent than most audiences going into expected. That makes this slow going at times, certainly having a conflict yet never fully grabbing you past feeling sorry for the poor visitor who seems to be there with good intentions. An interesting moment in the career of cult director Edgar G. Ullmer.

Boring, slow, Cheap, Background Movie, Like Background Music

Boring, slow, Cheap, Background Movie, Like Background Music Decent acting, but still boring. Characters suck. Story goes nowhere. Can't remember the music. The sets were cheap. It's like watching a background movie, very boring, like listening to background music. Not recommended.

Just for fun, some spoilers too.

Hey, I love cheesy Sci-FI, especially when it is more of a pseudo science fiction. This movie is just plain fun on all levels, from the sadistic Dr. who tortures the alien while communicating in geometry, a tactic still used in most educational systems. To Sally Field's mother as the damsel in distress. A solid win for the viewer, the added artistic touches like a fog machine running 24/7 for atmosphere combined with the spaceship that looks like a Christmas ornament gives the viewer a veritable cornucopia of swatches of video wallpaper that all together make one great piece of iconic kitsch.

Also what movie from the United Kingdom would be complete without an American hero saving the day with the aid of Scotland Yard? The only bummer is I was hoping we would see Sally Fields mother in the film the way she was portrayed on the poster......not a chance, and it is too bad too, I liked that image on the poster...a lot.
