A great Blu-ray release!

Roger Corman produced this little gem of a film that I hadn't seen for many, many years after I owned a few VHS copies of it back in the 80's.

Basil Rathbone heads a scientific organization that receives a distress signal from a distant planet's spaceship after it crashes. He assigns four astronauts to check for survivors. They find one survivor, a mysterious green skinned woman who doesn't talk, but does turn out to be more than they bargained for.

John Saxson, Judi Meredith, Dennis Hopper and Robert Boon are the four people who find their lives threatened by the new blood drinking alien passenger played by Florence Marley. It's Judi Meredith who actually stops the creature in a most unusual and unique way. Look for Forry Ackerman in a small role as well.

I always liked this film, but as I stated above I never had much of a chance to see it for a while until now, and this presentation looks fantastic. I have never seen the film look so colorful and clean.

Kino has done an excellent job with this somewhat obscure Roger Corman sci-fi film and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone who love science fiction, especially from the 60's.
