the second of three movies in which tor johnson plays a persona, named lobo
Audience Reviews for The Unearthly
The new MST3K Netflix original has been released and I decided to expose myself to some of the old episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy the torture they are put through. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the extra material broadcast from the satellite of love. In the vein of Ed Wood cheapy horror flicks. Tor Johnson is even present as a variation on his Lobo character, this time with a few speaking lines. Prolific John Carradine, who had always stayed busy working whether in A-level productions or Z-level genre pictures like this, is a mad scientist implanting glands. Carradine tries his best to be creepy with the poor material. The action scenes add no excitement.
A 50s schlock horror film about a mad scientist experimenting on his patients by injecting glands into their brain which causes mutation. There was nothing unearthly in the film.
A low budget mad scientist movie, not written well, and Carradine is the only good actor in the bunch. Without him, I'd give this movie one star! Unless you're a huge fan of his, don't waste time with this movie. The story is boring and predictable.
