A pair of crooks (Kenne Duncan and Jeanne Tatum) take over the country house of a geologist (Robert Clarke) and his trusty dog. They have kidnapped an heiress (Marilyn Harvey) where they plan to hold her until the ransom is collected. Soon they hear an explosion in the woods nearby that turns out to be a spaceship containing a sexy blonde alien with a skintight metallic suit, high heels, lipstick, and incredible eyebrows (Shirley Kilpatrick). Don’t let her touch you in any way! The plot is advanced by an off-screen narrator.

This is another one of those “so bad it’s good” Grade-Z science-fiction flicks from the 1950s. Hammy acting, bad dialogue, melodramatic narration, cheesy effects–it’s all there, along with enough plot holes to drive a starship through. This movie tries really hard: it has wiseguy gangsters, an alcoholic gun moll, a rich kidnapped heiress, a lonely bachelor scientist who talks to his dog, and a beautiful deadly female space-alien wearing a skintight catsuit. Something for everyone!
