Editorial Reviews

Nobody takes much notice when an asteroid crashes off the coast of Santa Monica. That is, until two people turn up dead.  It turns out that someone - or something - ejected from the asteroid, and it is responsible for the deaths.  The town must mobilize to track down the mysterious Phantom from Space, but what is its goal?  Why is it here?  And how easy a task will it be to track him down when it turns out...he's invisible! Phantom from Space balances out its suspense with some unintentional laughs, in this forgotten 50s sci-fi treasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, but I enjoyed it September 30, 2003
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half "Invisible Man", Half "Radar Secret Service" June 26, 2004
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars it's about time December 1, 2008
By stan c.
Format:DVD
It's about time somebody finally but out a decent print of "Phantom from space". I've been so sick and tired of finding copies that always have blurred images in them. Case in point is when a car goes by and the headlights leave a streak across the screen. I've been looking for a good copy of this film for quite awhile now and i have finally found it. I thought the picture quality was very good and the sound quality excellant. Other copy's I've seen left a lot to be desired. I've always wondered how some company"s can but out a product of inferior quality and dumb it on the general public when it come from and inferior source. I feel I am being ripped off. But Legend Films has out done them selfs with this film. Good picture and good sound. In my book this one is worth the money. I have not watched the colorized version of the film since I have no interest in faked color film. The color always looks unatural and I prefer my films in there original Black and White and aspect ratios.

3.0 out of 5 stars How To Make An Incredibly Average Sci-fi Movie... CHEAP! September 29, 2004
Format:DVD
Step 1- Make the alien invader invisible, so you only need to show doors opening and closing, and furniture moving around to indicate the extra-terrestrial presence. Step 2- Hire unknowns. Step 3- Stock footage! Stock footage! Stock footage! Actually, I happen to like PHANTOM FROM SPACE just fine. It's an average little movie with a decent storyline. Nothing spectacular, but enjoyable enough. I like the idea of an alien who is just trying to survive on our planet, without wanting to destroy us. He's stranded here with no way to communicate with our species! He kills in self-defense, only to be branded a murderer. He tries to make contact, but ends up scaring people instead. This is by no means a perfect movie. There are some lengthy patches of boredom and silliness throughout. I still recommend PFS to all science fiction fans...

Ok early 50's sci-fi film of a spaceman on the loose and causing havoc. Done in a semi-documentary style with a bunch of adequate and poor actors. Distinctly a grade Z film. Read more
