4.0 out of 5 stars Destination Inner Space gets a decent release
This is one of those obscure 60s B movies that many have heard of but few have ever seen. In a nutshell , this movie is basically a poor man's version of Creature from the Black Lagoon. Scott Brady stars in this undersea adventure about a monster who terrorizing an undersea lab crew. I admit the creature is kind of laughable but it still has a creepy face. There are...

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, not a decent release
I love this monster movie to death. If you haven't seen it, by all means buy it. However, for those who have this or have seen it, be aware it's a fullscreen, crappy transfer. If you already got this prior to this release, save your money. You tape or dvd-r is probably better than or at least equal to the pic quality of this release. Same washed out colors, but now also...

This is one of those obscure 60s B movies that many have heard of but few have ever seen. In a nutshell , this movie is basically a poor man's version of Creature from the Black Lagoon. Scott Brady stars in this undersea adventure about a monster who terrorizing an undersea lab crew. I admit the creature is kind of laughable but it still has a creepy face. There are plenty of scenes of Scott Brady and other cast members in their scuba gear swimming in the water. The pace gets a little better when the monster appears. If you can handle some padding with underwater scenes, this isnt too terribly bad. It is not the worst film ever made ! :)
CheezyFlicks' DVD is actually a pretty decent transfer - at least when compared to the Destination Inner Space DVD that was released by CryptFlicks which was a DVDr and pretty bad / hazy / blurry quality. While this transfer is not digitally remastered it is the clearest print Ive seen of it to date. Overall the clarity is of it is perfectly fine, but nothing spectacular.
For those of you who enjoy a good campy B movie like Slithis, Monster of Piedras Blancas or some of Roger Cormans' 1950s films, I would recommend it.
Decent movie, decent transfer and a decent cost..this will do fine until something better comes along, but I wouldnt hold my breath for that to happen unless its owned by a major studio who decides to go the MOD route...

I love this monster movie to death. If you haven't seen it, by all means buy it. However, for those who have this or have seen it, be aware it's a fullscreen, crappy transfer. If you already got this prior to this release, save your money. You tape or dvd-r is probably better than or at least equal to the pic quality of this release. Same washed out colors, but now also "blocky" due to el cheapo dvd transfer. If you've never seen this movie before, this is an ok first way to see it, but it's no improvement on what has been floating out there for years on vhs and dvd-r. I'd say Cheezy Flicks puts out sub-par stuff based on this and the handful of previews of their other releases on this disk, many of which are fake widescreen. Meaning they're fullscreen with black bars across the top and bottom covering up the picture to try to fool idiots that it's widescreen. I hate companies that pull this stunt and will avoid Cheezy Flicks at all costs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep sea invader brings back memories., October 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Destination Inner Space (DVD)
I remember watching this when i was a kid but never knew what it was called. I also watched it on a B&W televison set (yes, i'm THAT old). After years of trying to find it, I finally did on Amazon.com. It's all here, just as I remembered it. To my surprise, it was in color. This is ne of those movies that points out just what type of trouble people can get themselves into for being curious. A alien ship at the bottom of the sea is something to avoid, not go poking around in. Well, that what a few people did in this classic film, and they walked way (or should I say, swam away) with an unpleasent surprise. All hell breaks lose when a violent aliens starts ripping apart an undersea base and dead bodies are left in the creatures wake. No blood, no gore. But, alot of classic Sci-Fi fun. If you like "Creature from the black lagoon", give this movie a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars "You Can Stand Just So Much, And Then You Crack!"..., May 6, 2013
This review is from: Destination Inner Space (DVD)
Submarine commander Wayne (Scott Brady) travels to a scientific research facility on the ocean floor. He's there to study a strange, unidentified object that exhibits intelligent maneuvering abilities. Wayne spends most of his spare time being overly aggressive w/ the two beautiful, female scientists on board. He does a lot of yelling, even when he's just talking. Brady is from the William T. Shatner / Rod Steiger school of emotive acting, effectively chewing scenery into splinters! The real fun begins once the crew (finally) enters the alien craft. They find a cylindrical container (it looks like a grey-ish watermelon), and take it back to the sea-lab. Then, the cylinder begins to grow at an alarming rate! Next, it gives off a terrible sonic blast, and... hatches! Suddenly, a hideous creature is on a murderous rampage! Actually, as cheeezy monsters go, this one isn't bad at all. Its coloration is far from drab, w/ bright red, psychedelic fins! The crew fights for survival, while the recycled soundtrack from ANGRY RED PLANET plays on. DESTINATION INNER SPACE is clunky, 60s sci-fi at its best...

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep Sea Fishing -- By Aliens, No Less !, May 31, 2014
By 
Lion (Austin, Texas USA) - See all my reviews
I liked this movie much more than I expected. The plot is a mashup of alien-invastion movies and "Creature from the Black Lagoon." Other reviews have given some spoilers, but I'll stop here. Part of the fun for me was how this played out. While a little predictable, it wove a nice web. Darn, can't say that! It's a water-monster movie, not a giant spider movie.

Consistency between scenes is farcically bad. I found this more charming than annoying, in this case, but I thought I'd mention it. For fun, watch things like the bill of the hero's cap, the color of the dress of the 1st lady you in the second and third scenes, and the "underwater cage" used to keep animals out of the undersea lab.

The monster is kinda cool, especially for pre-ILM technologies. I liked the colorful flair, too. I wonder, though, why it has the bulge on its back and why an water-breathing animal makes air bubbles... :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Film - Okay Transfer from Cheezy Flicks, July 18, 2011
This review is from: Destination Inner Space (DVD)
Destination Inner Space is a classic b-movie monster flick with a solid cast, a great monster suit, and some pretty dodgy miniatures. The cast is good, the acting mostly competent, and it's even got a few good scares. Four stars for the movie itself (if you're a b-movie fan, like me).

The Cheezy Flicks transfer is very similar to a copy I'd obtained on DVD-R previously; in fact, I'd say that it's the _same_ transfer, but Cheezy cut out the opening logo of the original production company and replaced it with their own. They lose points for that in my book. Give the original its due, even if it's public domain.

The transfer itself is pretty good, but not DVD quality. I was really hoping for a fully remastered copy of the film in DVD quality. Still, this is much better than no version of the film at all, and should serve as a good introduction for the curious.

I, however, will be waiting for a full digital transfer in the original widescreen format.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rubber Fish & Hippie Chicks, November 6, 2014
By 
Doc Holliday (Lewis & Clark County, Montana, USA) - See all my reviews
The movie was a lot better than the poster made it look.

No, seriously, this fits nicely in the genre 1950's Horror Porn, although it wasn't very scary and they put way too much into interpersonal relationship that had nothing to do with the story. On the other hand, I've never seen a marine biologist decked out in 50's/60's gear, complete with obnoxious hoop earrings living in a 'sea lab,' so there's that. This is the kind of movie you put on when your doing something else and only pay attention once in awhile. And you know, nothing is going to happen while your not watching.

The monster suit deserves mention here. It look an amalgam of land and marine animals-the scales look like the feathers on an African Gray Parrot; the dorsal fin looks like it came off a sun fish; the face comes from a large mouth bass, or my ex-mother in law, I am not sure which; and it seems to try to stand upright like a human. But, the highlight of the suit seems to be that the guy wearing the suit couldn't swim in the suit and couldn't walk very well, either.

Producers: When you re-make this movie into a major blockbuster, spend more time on the fish suit so the person wearing it can swim and walk in it.

This is, essentially, a low budget, 1950's version of the Abyss. Notice in Abyss there aren't any rubber fish suits. Just Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Which was worse.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK monster from outer space movie, September 15, 2014
This was an interesting story about underwater exploration and a monster from outer space. It was obviously made a long time ago by looking at some of the equipment but that does not detract from the story. However, they went into detail about the conflict between two scientists but they ended the movie with very little detail. The monster was a bit silly and they claimed it was intelligent but I think they could elaborated on that. The set was very basic. Overall I gave it four stars because I was able to watch it to the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars misleading information, February 21, 2014
dear amazon,
when i looked at the info for this film it said it was released in 2011. I now know that it wasn't actually released a few years ago but that it is the dvd that was released. Anyways, I found it annoying that the initial information didn't even mention the fact that the film was from the 1960s. Haven't watched the film yet, I'm going to give it a try but I'm bothered by the misleading initial information that was provided.

3.0 out of 5 stars ) and it is silly fun., November 15, 2014
I saw this the first time when I was a kid and found it again and rewatched it. The quality is decent, but obviously a port from a VHS tape, not from a digital redo or the original. The look is very dated, the acting a bit over-the-top and stereotypical, but the idea of an alien under the water is fairly rare (this, Abyss, uh...) and it is silly fun.
