Movie Info

It has now become a film-review clich to preface a write-up for I Married a Monster From Outer Space with the cautionary "Don't be misled by the title." The fact remains, however, that this one of the better and more intelligent horror outings of the late 1950s.

Audience Reviews for I Married a Monster from Outer Space

OK B-grade flick about a town where all the men are replaced by lookalike aliens. Kinda crappy effects and mediocre performances, but for a movie like this, that's not going to matter that much. A bit like Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets the Stepford Wives. A decent timewaster for a rainy Thursday morning (which is when I saw it.)
