A Certificate


Our Score
A group of misfits stranded in Chicago uneasily band together after robots from Venus launch an invasion attack in director Sherman A Rose's below par programme-filler. Spirited acting by good guys Richard Denning and Kathleen Crowley can't shake off the tedium engendered by an over-reliance on talk rather than action. The lumbering robots with Death Ray eyes are the usual 1950s tin cans created by raiding the kitchen appliance draw. An unimaginative potboiler based on the novella Deadly City by Paul W Fairman.


Four Chicago residents are stranded in the centre of the city following a mysterious evacuation. When they learn of an imminent alien invasion, the quartet of strangers join forces to try and save the planet. Sci-fi thriller, starring Richard Denning, Kathleen Crowley and Virginia Grey.
