Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

An enormous alien robot lands off the California coast and tramples on everything in sight as it advances towards Los Angeles on an energy-sucking spree. Despite its reliance on stock footage, cost-cutting special effects (mainly large-size props) and average direction - by The Fly's Kurt Neumann - this unusually slanted invasion thriller is a perfect example of engagingly deranged 1950s B-movie-making. A minor classic with the cube-like heavy metal conqueror relieving the occasional bouts of tedium where arch scientists Jeff Morrow and Barbara Lawrence race to save the Earth from total destruction.
