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.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 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.

One of so many similar films of the time trying to make something of threats to or opportunities for humanity presented by the Cold War and the very large jump in concern about alien visitors and flying saucers out of proportion with the very early steps of mankind into space.

I watch many of these films now because I saw many in my early school years. Even in grade school I knew much of the science was wrong, yet the films were intriguing and entertaining. People in so many walks of life were often presented as very thoughtful though the actual population simply was not dwelling at all on deep issues--mostly going to work and spending time with their families not investigation UFOs.

These are still fun to watch mostly as nostalgic flash backs.

Somehow this genre contributed to me becoming a physicist and USAF officer. Sort of STEM career motivation of the time. Lol.

This movie is so-so in regard to plot and all that. It is well worth your watching, however, because it has textbook old time science fiction music. If you're a science fiction nut like I am, you'll laugh out loud about the sound effects in this film.

I remember seeing this a long time ago. Yea, it's cheap, but I liked watching it. A lot of the old sci fi stuff became the basis for the sci fi movies of today. Harry Landers as the police lieutenant? I swear it's Rod Serling or Hugh O'Brien.

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. I bought the Legend Films restored DVD with both black-and-white and colorized versions. I bought it for the black and white version and was not disappointed. It is the most sharp and clear version I've ever seen. This is the one to get. Highly recommended.

First, I feel I must warn anyone reading this review that I am a B-grade sci-fi fan, preferably C- or D-grade to be honest. I believe the best sci-fi film is one that, unintentionally, makes me laugh. However I rarely, if ever, find science fiction films written as comedies to be funny. What causes me to smile so broadly as I watched this film (for the third time) is how dated it is and I don't believe that to be the fault of anyone involved in its creation. In regard to special effects, perception of time travel, ET's, and the sciences in general, this film is like a time-capsule. It would be interesting to add some extras to this video: lighting and camera techniques, directions on how they filmed an "invisible" alien vs. how that would be done today; how investigators and scientists would track and combat the alien using tech and applying up-to-date scientific methods and understanding. Technology and mankind's understanding of the world around, continues to change but films like this are, for me, like a trip down memory lane. I loved the big antennae on top of the cars as our heroes drove around, tracking the "monster" by radio waves. I liked the fact these professionals were savvy enough to know a radio-active space suit needed to be handled with tongs and transported in a lead-lined box but had no qualms about standing right next to the suit or handling another part of the space suit that had been in direct contact with the part they refused to touch. I enjoyed watching this film again and will enjoy it as much the next time I watch it and for the same reason I enjoy a good conspiracy theory - because it makes me wonder.Read more ›
