Killers From Space Review

Shot on a budget of about $4.78, Killers from Space is one of those fun old 50’s sci fi movies that provides plenty of unintentional laughs.

Peter Graves plays a scientist riding in a plane to observe a nuclear explosion. The plane crashes and he is believed to be dead. He shows up a few days later, disoriented and with a scar over his heart. He’s seeing things and not thinking clearly and eventually starts talking about aliens living in caves. It turns out he was saved by aliens in black jumpsuits with Marty Feldman eyes. He was saved so he could tell them when the next nuclear test was because they are gathering and storing the energy to feed to their menagerie of giant insects and lizards. When they have a large enough zoo, they will turn them loose on the public and wipe out the Earth’s population.

Yes, this movie is fun to watch, but make no mistake that as a film it’s terrible. The alien’s "look" is ridiculous and watching Peter Graves cringe from giant insects that aren’t really there is hilarious. The plot isn’t bad as 50s sci fi goes, it’s just so poorly done.
