Scientists track down an invisible alien who has crash landed on Earth. Trite and talky.

The first twenty minutes of ths movie is so boring, but if you stick with it, it does pick up. Sure the special effects were bad. they were bad for that time period. And as far as the narrator goes, it would have been better if they chose a character whjo had a point of view in the movie.

A pretty bad film, with poor acting, choppy editing and an abismal soundtrack. However there are a couple of good plot points which almost redeem it.

Entertaining 50's Sci-Fi although often for unintentional reasons. Not quite an award winning "Alternative Classic" (a/k/a worst of the Z's) but worthy of honorable mention due to some of the special effects which provide unintended comic relief. (The chase scene is unintentionally hilarious.) The helmet of the alien's "space suit" is the same helmet that an alien wore previously in another Alternative Classic, "Robot Monster". Only in "Robot Monster", the helmet was worn in the opposite direction (the back of the helmet in "R.M." is the front in "P.F.S."). A decent plot and some special effects (which were decent for the time) keep this movie from being a total "train wreck".

So we have another one of those sci-fi's when a strange man in a suit drops from outer space, this time he happens to be invisible underneath his suit and goes around hurting a few people. Eventually the scientists trying to track him down manage to shanghai his suit because he gets out of it for some reason even though his life is dependent on the gas that is in the suits breathing apparatus. With the suit they set a trap because they know he will need to return to breathe the gas again.

Memorable moments, the film was that dull I only remember two things in detail. The first one being the worst comb over I have ever seen being sported by a man in a radio station who pops on frequently to send messages over his tannoy. The second memory I have was when the alien locked the woman in the science lab and watched her labour over some machinery, they should have named this 'Pervert from Space' just because of that scene.

Other criticisms were the amount of narration used to explain this, it was obvious that they must not have had all the facilities possible to just create the story and had to resort to a sort of narration that sounded similar to a news reporter to explain this. One positive is I thought was some of the special effects were pretty good for its day, not all the moving invisible objects were moved by string.

Ordinary low budget sci-fi film from the 1950's, complete with a cliche'd sci-fi score and overacting. Entertaining, but only in enjoying a poorly made film. It has some surprisingly decent special effects for 1953.

A typical low-budget science fiction movie from the 50's. The effects are cheesy but great for camp goers. The acting is the usual- bad. A generic and forgettable film.
