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 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 Grab Some Popcorn And Turn The Lights Down! April 9, 2013
By Maddog
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I first saw this film in 1968 at a movie house when I was 18 years old, and it made a lasting impression. Yes, it was shot on a shoestring budget and some of the "special" effects were animated by Hanna Barbera Studios (some of the underwater sequences were reused from the Jonny Quest tv series), but that's what helped make it unique for its time.

It also has a pretty decent plot that includes overpopulation, genetic engineering and biological warfare. The acting, while not quite Oscar-caliber, isn't all that bad and includes some of my old favorites like Chris George ("Rat Patrol"), Henry Jones ("Phyllis"), Monte Markham ("The Golden Girls"), and Harold Gould ("Rhoda"). Look these guys up on WikipediA and you'll find they all had impressive filmographies before turning to television.

I bought the film (Blu-ray) because it's impossible to find on television (I think it's been shown twice over the last 40 or so years), which is a shame because it's a perfect late-night or rainy afternoon passtime.

Olive Films has done a good job bringing the print to high-definition quality: the colors are vivid and the look of the original film appears to have been retained. The monaural soundtrack, although good, would have benefitted from (at least) a stereo remix, but the film most likely has a limited market so I'll give Olive a pass on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars "I can remember"? October 12, 2012
By Paulie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie when it came out in 1968, I was 12 years old. I realy liked it then. It had action and out of this world effects. Now as an adult its just so-so. It did bring back memories of my friends and I at that time. As I can recall it was a much bigger production on the big screen, or was everything "bigger" to me back then? I'm not sure. God bless the star Mr. Christopher George. May him and this movie rest in peace.
