Oh, yeah, the Mihmiverse does it for me again!
A most delightful break from collating the files on my computer as I sat back, cracked a coca cola and began consuming popcorn (hot BUTTERED, naturally) and basically relived my youth.
First, let's talk about "X: The Fiend from Beyond Space" . One quarter alien, one quarter IT, the Terror from Beyond Space (1958) only Michael G. Kaiser was luckier than the late, great, Ray "Crash" Corrigan who played "It". At least Michael didn;t have to keep punching himself in the face to get his eyeholes back in position so he could see.
As mentioned by another reviewer Michael didn't get his usual "dual" role here....usually a "Barney Fife" kind of role as well as the Monster...but he does have absorbing down really good.
The other two quarters of this one? Space Opera, friend. Just old school Space Opera.
Which blew their entire budget for duct tape so none was used in the second feature of this double bill.
Which brings us to the horror that is
THE WALL PEOPLE
They come through the walls like a shadow in the night to steal the children of earth and take them to...
Let's just say, "Somewhere Else."
The always enjoyable Douglas Sidney (as Barney Collins) thinks HE knows but even he isn't always certain as the Master of the Wall People manipulates his mind (and, consequently, his perception of reality) in order to keep him from gettinng back his son who had disappeared some eight years before the story begins.
Or was it eight years?
Did he have a son?
Did I even watch this?
Could it have been a dream? An undigested bit of beef? A blot of mustard?
Am I even writing this?
Does it even make sense that I could have been watching a movie on a screen via some sort of wireless connection?
That's pure science fiction!
It is far more probable that I am lying in a sanatorium in a straight jacket having completely lost touch with reality!
