Scarier than killer aliens were the opening scenes of actual atomic bomb tests. Real stuff. People sitting outside with nothing but protective goggles. Yikes!
Not long after the detonation, there’s a spooky flash. Oh no, the plane is crashing. However, they merely turned the image sideways, as the clouds are vertical.
Doctor Martin is dead. Noo! Never fear! He’s not quite dead yet. He shows up on the street, staggering, barely standing. Yet he has enough strength to check the mail before ambling over to the military base. Mail was uber important back then and especially after surviving a horrific crash.
You look healthy except for that scar on your chest, Dr. Martin.
As it turns out, and we shouldn’t be surprised, Dr. Martin was abducted by aliens.
The aliens travel via an electron bridge. I thought that idea pretty cool. Their planet, Astron Delta, is dying. Their sun went out and they need a new home. Guess what? Earth is it!
Dr. Martin frantically tries to leave the cavern. But it’s guarded by giant spiders. I guess killer aliens weren’t scary enough. There are also giant bugs and lizards. Darn those atomic bombs! A lot of time was spent gawking at ‘giant’ creatures. This made the aliens laugh. Hmm, we share that sense of humor.
The giant creatures will be the army for the aliens. Double darn those atomic bombs! And, no one believes Dr. Martin. They think he’s batsh*t crazy. It doesn’t help that he’s running around in his pajamas. Can Doug stop the alien invasion and save the day? Well, you’ll have to watch.
Here’s the trailer:
It was more on the entertaining side than boring, but there was no dancing. Bummer. I did really like the electron bridge and the goofy-looking aliens. So, I give this a 2 beer rating. Yeah, you’ll need more than one.
