Jack Arnold directs Grant Williams, Randy Stuart and April Kent in this domestic set sci fi thriller.
The performance and effect work are very much of their time, charming rather than ropey, but the action becomes so involving you ignore the seams apparent in the spectacle. Good writing and strong vision make this a very easy prospect to just enjoy the ride. Narratively lean but with quite admirable existential ambitions this is an intelligently made treat. In a small but significant role as a circus midget happy with her lot, April Kent impresses. Sadly a quick Google suggest this was the peak of a short career. Shame really as she adds a little extra heart to this sharp tale of bloodless body horror and one man’s survival against a rapidly changing world.
