Killing two people who attacked him due to the menacing appearance of his spacesuit, the creature takes it off while being pursued by government authorities, revealing himself to be invisible.

Customer Reviews

Here, the alien is marooned on earth and seeks only to survive.
Martin Asiner
I liked that the film didn't attempt to make the invader from space into a killing machine, and that in the end actually made the audience feel sympathy for him.
Robert I. Hedges
The first half of the movie is slow, but after everyone ends up in the laboratory building things start picking up.

W. Lee Wilder had a penchant for making enjoyably average yet largely forgettable science fiction films. In Phantom From Space (1953), he introduces us to a much more agreeable alien than that found in his more familiar Killers From Space of the following year. Okay, so the phantom does kill a few people and cause some serious oil fires, but it's not all his fault. He's just not a people person, you see, what with being invisible and all. He's also not that bright, choosing to ditch his spacesuit and helmet rather than fall into the clutches of the humans on his tail. He needs something akin to a methane gas atmosphere in order to breathe, and a helmet-less jaunt on earth with its oxygen-based atmosphere threatens to cut short his visit in a most significant way.
The film starts out with an unidentified object hurtling from Alaska to the California coast, where the object seems to disappear. Mobile communications folks are sent out to determine the source of interference suddenly wreaking havoc in the area, and these guys keep bumping into cops investigating murders and other acts of destruction. Soon, these different forces team up with an army man and a scientist, and everyone eventually comes to the amazing conclusion that the source of all the trouble is actually a humanoid not of this world. The ending is not exactly a bright and chipper one, but it is just about the only plausible ending possible and, in its own way, it works pretty effectively.
I actually enjoyed Phantom From Space, despite a number of slow scenes in the first half of the film. The actors are reasonably good albeit colorless, and I was amused at the way the lead scientist seemed to become more and more German as the action progressed.

Format: DVD
"The Phantom From Space" is a sci-fi cheapie from 1953. The first half is pretty boring, as most of the action involves driving around in ridiculous old cars with ludicrous antennae on their roofs looking for disturbances. This takes place in California, so there are some other wacky things going on, but just to make sure we understand, the bulk of the first half hour or so is narrated. As the narrator drones on over the scenes of stock footage, and the cars drive around endlessly, something finally happens! A murder by a guy in a diving suit happens, to be specific, but unfortunately for the audience, all that results for our entertainment is some really tough (not!) interrogation of the prime suspect. Ultimately a couple of people get killed and a refinery gets set on fire.
As the movie gets over the hump and starts picking up steam, we see some silly police foot chases of the diving-suit being that go on a bit too long, but ultimately corner the guy in a lab with a pretty female scientist. To evade capture the being takes off his suit and turns out to be invisible unless exposed to ultraviolet light. They chase him around until he needs to put his helmet back on while he practices Morse code with the lady scientist. She figures out that he needs to breathe methane (hence his attraction to the refinery...see how it all makes sense) but thanks to the comic relief newspaper reporter who is forever screwing everything up (at least they got that part right) he drops and breaks his helmet. Eventually we see him shriek and burn up in what I believe may be the Griffith Park Observatory, his mission having utterly failed.
This film is a borderline two or three star movie, but I decided to go with three as it was quite well made considering that it was from 1953.

Format: DVD
The picture on the box looks much better than the actual phantom, but this movie has its moments. Though the film was low budget, and there are some silly moments, the film tries to be somewhat serious, and rather than the usual approach to aliens in the 50s, meaning shoot to kill, dissect them, and then ask questions, the people who encounter the phantom make an attempt at communication. If they would have had better gadgets, perhaps they could have spoken.

An alien space ship goes from Alaska to California, which seems awfully sensible if you consider the weather in the two states. Unfortunately, the landing is a bit rougher than the alien had planned, and the alien has to literally come ashore. Unfortunately for the alien, bizarre-looking space suits were out of season at that time, and the local fashion police attacked him. The space suited phantom had to kill in order to defend his right to express himself through his uniform.

Unfortunately, killing people is mostly frowned upon in California, so the local gendarmes attempt to track the being down, using super incredible whiz-bang detection equipment. I was confused as to whether I should be impressed or laugh, so I finally chose rolling my eyes each time I saw a cheesy "dish" car. Just think, a satellite dish on the roof of a car might be all the rage today.

Eventually there is quite a crowd chasing one, poor defenseless alien around. The alien decides to ditch his space suit to take advantage of his natural invisibility. Needing to breath the special mixture provided by his suit seemed to advise against taking his space suit off. The next thing you know the space suit dissolves, except for the helmet.
