Audience Reviews for Phantom from Space

Some of the worst acting I've seen. Plus scenes like, "Oh look. This suit drives the Geiger counter crazy. Let's stand around it and talk while Charlie gets a lead box to put it in.."

Entertaining 50's Sci-Fi although often for unintentional reasons. Not quite an award winning "Alternative Classic" (a/k/a worst of the Z's) but worthy of honorable mention due to some of the special effects which provide unintended comic relief. (The chase scene is unintentionally hilarious.) The helmet of the alien's "space suit" is the same helmet that an alien wore previously in another Alternative Classic, "Robot Monster". Only in "Robot Monster", the helmet was worn in the opposite direction (the back of the helmet in "R.M." is the front in "P.F.S."). A decent plot and some special effects (which were decent for the time) keep this movie from being a total "train wreck".

Some nifty invisibility effects, an interesting idea and a little bit of alien nudity at the end (wow that must've been pretty risqué at the time)
