If anything, a modern vantage point reaffirms how devastatingly the film hits the nail on the head.

Despite the lurid title and the involvement of several genre regulars, It Came from Outer Space is hardly a typical 'Fifties sci-fi movie.

Picture has been smartly fashioned to take advantage of all the tricks of science-fiction and 3-D.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

One of the better science-fiction films to come out of the Cold War 50s, this one must be counted among the anti-McCarthy statements.

Cinema em Cena

Conta com uma temática rica que, ao contrário de boa parte de seus contemporâneos, usa os alienígenas não como metáfora para a ameaça comunista, mas para condenar o preconceito.

The 3-D process leaves the image somewhat murky, but you can discern sparks of authentic pulp poetry throughout.

Surprisingly good '50s alien invasion flick with giant eyeballs -- maintains its charm despite the lack of 3-D effects on most video copies.

predates the paranoia trope made so popular in 1956's Invasion of the Body Snatchers about what is human and what is alien.

Serling observed that for as lovely as Bradbury was to read, his prose proved nearly impossible to say.

The hokey "xenomorphs" would egregiously emphasize the film's subtle indictment of human prejudice.

While It Came from Outer Space's theme is a refreshing change of pace from the doomsaying brethren of its era, its appearance is not.

It was one of the first major-studio 3-D productions of the 1950s, and is based on a story by Ray Bradbury called "The Meteor."
