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.Read more ›
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.

I was 3 years old when this movie was made in 1953. The "special effects" are almost funny in light of the newest Star wars. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Bob
Predicable plot. The acting was lousy. The actors just did not get into their parts. It was obvious they were just saying their lines.Published 10 days ago by Irene La Mirand
