For many years, Ivan Tors' "Gog" topped my list of "movies I want to buy on DVD." One of my oldest childhood memories is seeing it with my parents at a drive-in theatre in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I don't know if we saw its initial release in 1953 (I would have been REALLY young!), or maybe a second-run screening, but I vividly remembered scenes from it, even though that was the first and only time I ever saw it. I'm very pleased to now own this little-known sci-fi film on DVD (even though I have some qualms about the disk being "made-to-order").

By the way, if you wonder, as I did, why Amazon didn't post an image of the DVD cover, I have the answer. The cover features what looks like a red printed-circuit board layout on a stark black background. It's possibly the lamest, least relevant, most unattractive (not to mention cheapest) artwork I've ever seen on a DVD. It has absolutely nothing to do with the movie. I'm tempted to grab a couple of screencaps and make my own replacement cover. I posted a couple of Customer Images just in case Amazon never gets around to it.

But I digress. What about the movie itself? Well, I found it...interesting. Here's the good news. The video transfer is superb. The full-frame picture has excellent sharpness and contrast, vivid and accurate color and very good production values throughout. I noted just one place where the colors faded for a few seconds. The sound is very good, with crisp and understandable dialogue (except for a few short spots) that's never overwhelmed by exceptionally loud music as is so often the case in today's movies. The acting is on a par with other movies of similar vintage. The special effects range from laughable to excellent, but mostly are pretty good.

This is a movie I was hoping to find on home video for over 30 years. It started out as a weekend grade-b matinee for the 1950's pre-teen generation, then ended up being shown on local TV stations because it was cheap. This is one of the films I grew up with, and as silly as it may seem, I've always loved it. For those who haven't heard of it before, a secret underground base somwhere in an American desert is readying the first manned space flight to launch from Earth. The entire base is automated, controlled by a central computer called NOVAC. Suddenly, researchers and test subjects start dying when the automated equipment begins to function on its own. One scientist - and his assistant - are locked in a low-temperature test chamber and frozen to death. In another incident, a centrifuge accelerates to maximum speed in spite of the researchers' attempts to stop it and kills two astronaut training subjects. In desperation, the base's manager - played by 50's sci-fi great, Herbert Marshall - calls in a scientific investigator played by Richard Egan. During his investigation, Egan interrogates the designer of the computer, Dr. Zeichmann, who arrogantly denies the possibility that his NOVAC is involved. During questioning, Egan notices that there are two robots parked in one end of the chamber. Zeichmann has named them GOG and MAGOG, after characters in the bible. He claims that he built them as replacements for human astronauts because he believes that humans could never survive the acceleration or other conditions of space flight. After a few more incidents, Egan discovers that radio waves are being beamed to the central computer from somewhere in the stratosphere. These signals instruct the central computer to operate the machinery that's been killing the base's occupants.Read more ›

As an avid collector of 50's sci-fi films, I've waited a long time for this official release of "Gog." It's one of those movies that many of us heard about or read about for many years, but rarely got the chance to actually see. So was it worth the wait? For the most part, yes (please note, minor spoilers follow).

Despite being originally screened in 3-D (which was at the height of its popularity in 1953) and featuring a pair of robots, "Gog" doesn't really fit in with its pulpy rubber-monster brethren of the same era. Here's a science fiction film with--gasp!--real science (more or less). This is both an asset and a liability, depending on how much "sci" you like in your sci-fi. In other words, if you're tuning in to see a lot of killer robot action, you'll be disappointed. "Gog" is a very talky film, although it held this viewer's interest with a plethora of science gadgets and impressive lab sets.

Which is not to say there isn't SOME action. The film racks up a surpising body count, as the scientists and other workers are exterminated by....well, you'll have to see for yourself. The production values are also pretty high for a "b" movie. The lab scenes have an almost documentary-like reality to them. And the robots Gog and Magog, while less believable, are well-made and memorable.

As I said, I've waited a very long time to see a good print of this film. And MGM doesn't disappoint. The color scheme is typical for films of the period: Almost saturated in places, but very bright and well-defined. The mono audio track is clear throughout. Unfortunately, there are no bonus features at all, not even scene selections. But if you're a fan of the movie, or just 50's sci-fi in general, you'll want to add this one to your collection.
