Editorial Reviews

Classic Sci-Fi thriller produced and directed by cult filmmaker William Castle (The Tingler). A secret agent, Christopher George (TV's The Rat Patrol) is brought back from cryogenic suspension after surviving a plane crash during a mission. Through a complex scientific charade he is convinced that he's a gangster living in the year 1968, the plan is for George to uncover a secret germ formula that had been hidden away years earlier. But the vital memories are being suppressed, so the authorities use ultra-advanced technologies to uncover the secret. The film boasts top-notch special effects and a cast of great character actors that includes Henry Jones, Harold Gould and Monte Markham.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure December 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
True confessions: I bought this video after trying in vain to find a copy on Netflix/Hulu/YouTub/Amazon Prime. I have been going nuts since 1970 trying to find out how this movie ended.

I saw the first half of "Project X" in November of 1970. Why didn't I see the second half? I had told my folks I was going to be hanging out with friends that night - but convienently forgot to tell them the friend was named Peggy (insert sigh here). In order to get her in home in time - for me to get home in time - we had to leave the Kambe theater early - but my carefully devised duplicity all came to naught when I got my dad's Maverick stuck in the snow and busted curfew anyway.

Through the pre-video years that followed that first interupted viewing I would search late-night movie listings for this show, eventually forgetting the name and most of the plot line other than it starred Christopher George. Then the Internet struck. Thank Wikipedia for helping me find the name of the show listed under Mr. George's entry. Thank Amazon Video for finally providing me the chance to see how the story ended.

Is this great cinema? No. I wanted to see/purchase this video mostly out of nostalgia sake, but I find that I like it for the same reason I love the 1966 Adam West version of Batman. (It may be campy but it would be nice to live in a world where a flabby middle-aged man in tights is considered attractive and no one really gets hurt.) "Project X" is "happy" entertainment but then what else would you expect out of one of Hanna-Barbera's very few live-action ventures? We live in a time when domestic and foreign terrorism scares the ba-jebbers out of all of us...and robs too many of us(and sadly our children)of a decent future.

This is escapist entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating William Castle Sci-FI Thriller March 7, 2013
By Grrrr
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Most of director/producer William Castle's films seem to be either straight horror, light macabre or mystery thrillers, and so this unusual science-fiction entry in his long list of films makes me wish that he had done some more in this genre. Although this film suffers, in part, from a lack of a bigger budget, there's certainly no poverty of interesting ideas in the story. PROJECT X is a combination of Science-fiction thriller and espionage thriller, and the two elements blend together rather cleverly. What's also interesting about this movie is that Castle got the services of Hanna-Barbera to do some very fascinating special-effects sequences. I remember seeing this movie at Steel Pier in Atlantic City when I was 15 years old, and always had fond memories of it. When I finally obtained, after hunting this down for years, a copy of the movie on DVD, I played it and was not disappointed-it's still lived up to those memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silly, Sixties Fun. May 6, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Ok. "Project X" is not a deep, philosophical film by any stretch of the imagination, but it is fun and not particularly as violent as today's films.

I enjoyed the film. I saw it when it was on the CBS Late Night Movie years ago. Probably that's why the film aroused my curiosity when I had the chance to view it as an adult.

The plot is somewhat a mishmash. Set about a hundred years in the future, Christopher George stars as a futuristic secret agent who has lost his memory (due to an amnesia inducing drug that was given to him if he was tortured) and the far-out and totally hysterical plan by a group of scientists (led by Henry Jones) to recover the secrets George's character lost. And, of course, the safety of the world depends on it.

The late Henry Jones, a sixties and seventies TV and film star, was a far better actor than given credit for. Granted, he was never the "star," but he was a fine supporting player who really brought a great performance to what ever TV and movie production he was working on.

The sixties elements are in fine form here; the psychedelic opening credits, the animation, the cheesy human brain in a transparent globe, the outlandish outfits. They all scream the sixties.

I didn't realize until recently this was a William Castle production. But now that I know, it's so obvious. But I still find it more original with some of its ideas than more contemporary films.

Hey! If we're tortured and we lose our memory, let's all be reprogrammed with a new identity and personality and given a beautiful new wife. Who cares about our former lives and family? Sounds good to me.

For Sixties Fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Throwback Sci Fi February 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great Sci Fi flick. The film came delivered in good condition and on time. The film itself had a couple elements that were unique still today like smoking our food supplements and thinking so hard your thoughts physically manifest themselves. Sci Fi tends to reflect what the state of the times is going through and this one reflects the 60's. It feels dated be there are interesting ideas there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic science fiction on a budget August 18, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A really thoughtful story done on the cheap by William Castle. Henry Jones gives a great performance as the scientist in charge of the project, Greta Baldwin is gorgeous, the story is really different, the use of animation is interesting, and the vision of the future presented is unlike anything you've ever seen. You would call it dystopian if you had to live there, but the people in the story take it for granted.

I bought the regular DVD of this one. There isn't anything going on onscreen that you need Blu Ray to fully appreciate. Not even Greta Baldwin.

I think this is the only S.F. movie by William Castle, which is a shame.
