Critic Reviews for It Came from Outer Space
Picture has been smartly fashioned to take advantage of all the tricks of science-fiction and 3-D.
The 3-D process leaves the image somewhat murky, but you can discern sparks of authentic pulp poetry throughout.
If anything, a modern vantage point reaffirms how devastatingly the film hits the nail on the head.
Audience Reviews for It Came from Outer Space
The strengths are all in the story - and it's a beauty.
Now this is a pretty good Chiller Theater / Drive In Movie, one that has gotten by me all these years. Put out by Universal Pictures International it ranks as high as any SCi Fi Film from the fifties that I have ever seen. Brian Kerwin plays Jack Putnam who see's what at first he thinks is a meteor but turns out to be a UFO that has landed on earth, when he goes to the crash site he thinks he sees invaders from another planet. So starts the story where no one believes him, but the invaders are taking over the appearances of towns folks. A good old black and white worth 4 stars.
Camp fun and to tell you the truth,this almost cheesy but with the utmost suspense little b-movie manages to finish first in the line of fiery Academy nominated or even winning films.Blunt,"offensive" against human nature,the film Ed Wood would wish to successfully direct.
