Movie Info

Gog--or GOG, as it was originally released, is another of Ivan Tors' speculative melodramas about the activities of the fictional Office of Scientific Investigation. This time, OSI operative David Sheppard (Richard Egan) looks into sabotage being directed against the New Mexico installation where the first manned space station is being built. The base is under the "command" of NOVAC, an anagram for Nuclear Operated Variable Automatic Computer. It turns out that NOVAC has been overriden by enemy agants, who've reprogrammed the computer to undermine the space-station project and even commit murder. To this end, NOVAC dispatches two robots, GOG and MAGOG, to do its dirty work. Can Democracy be saved? Gog was directed by Herbert L. Strock, who later helmed many episodes of Ivan Tors' Science Fiction Theater TV series.

There can be no doubt as to where the makers of Gog stood on the McCarthy witch hunts . . .

Audience Reviews for Gog

It's silly junk and hopelessly dated but so earnestly played and ridiculous its good for a few laughs.

54% It's mostly a guided tour through a pre-NASA government lab, when two robots with erections start killing the employees.

I was surprised that this film was released in 1954, its about the government doing space research and there lab and robots are taken over by a outside force what outside force we are never told, a good sci fi movie that mad the drive in and local theater in 1960 time frame, not a sleeper but not stellar either. 3 stars
