A plane crash with two occupants turns up only one body.  Hours later, the second occupant turns up alive and well, save for two new scars.  He doesn’t know how he got them, any more than how he survived the crash.  But the Killers From Space know… Everything.

Muahahahahaha!

Or words to that effect.

Anyway.

There is a kernel of an excellent movie buried in Killers From Space. Somewhere.  You might have to do a lot of digging, maybe bring out a pick ax or some dynamite, but it’s there.  Beneath the stock footage, the padding, and a whole bunch of scenes that tell rather than show.  It’s there, damn it.

Okay, so Killers From Space is a bad movie. (0.5 points)  And honestly, i don’t know why I’m going to such length to defend it, as I can’t honestly say I liked the movie (1 point),

However, I did have my fun riffing on it while I watched it. So it’s might not be a total loss.  Either for me, or for you.

Overall Score: 1.5 total point out of a possible 4
