Fascinating sets show the geometric world of the future.

Classic Film and Television

A prime example of low-budget mid-century cheese, more valuable now as an artifact of that era than for any supposed entertainment value it might have possessed in 1960. It can only be enjoyed ironically.

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Not really good, but such a fascinating no-budgeter that it's mesmerizing.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The cardboard sets and flat acting and primitive story line reminded me of the '50s Captain Video TV program I got a kick out of watching as a kid.

Audience Reviews for Beyond the Time Barrier

The science part that sets this pic into motion is actually pretty cool and well thought but the execution is lame, with cardboard sets that are horrible to look at and it just drags forever and ever, never really going anywhere or giving any decent payoff in the end. This what b-movies in the 60s looked like.
