This is more than some silly drive-in 50's horror. The characters and plot are precise and the science is explained in full. It's not outright scary, but does have some surprises and tense moments.

Very interesting introduction to no-mainstream horror, where the killer is more of a concept than a material thing.Ive noticed no close up to the creature, and then i read the trivia on it, and was pleased to read the reason. Very interesting film for sci-fi lovers.

I liked this movie for basically one reason - the 50's sci fi elements. The acting is bad, the movie is slow, and the characters are stupid. But, the plot was original, the thing was kinda scary, and it came together well in the end. Good.
