Critic Reviews for Not of This Earth

All Critics (3)

The more sober-minded work, and the creepier film, thanks in large measure to Paul Birch's performance as the gent who is 'not of this Earth.'

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Could be the most effective of Corman's non-comic pre-Poe films...

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Somehow Corman makes it all work, even the purely expositional dialogue scenes.

Audience Reviews for Not of This Earth

½

This movie came from the Roger Corman's Triple feature collection, The opening of this film must have created quite a stir when shown in the Drive In's around 1958. Bet a few cars started up and headed home. A alien comes to earth as a man with no eyes to collect blood for his planet. Very well done for 1958. 3 1/2 stars. 3-22-13
