From gimmick director William Castle comes a film that could use a jolt of schlocky fun. There are actually 15 girls, but other than the lead, none of them ever shows anything resembling fear or a personality. The girls run the gamut of stereotypes, including a Swede who murmurs, "I want to be alone," a hot-blooded South American, and a curiously manly and athletic Russian. As for poor Mai-Ling (the Chinese student), her every appearance is accompanied by mysterious East music, and she seems to have studied speech with Mr. Magoo's servant. The closest thing to a twist is that the big enemy turns out not to be the Russians, but those other commie bastards, the red Chinese. The scariest thing in the film is a our 16-year-old lead attempting to seduce a much older Murray Hamilton. That's just icky.
