Audience Reviews for The Unearthly

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.
