Flying saucer lands in the woods, near make-out point. Johnny Carter (Steven Terrell) and Joan Haydon (Gloria Castillo) a teenage couple leaving make-out point, without headlights, accidentally hit one of the aliens. Joe Gruen (Frank Gorshin) a partying drifter finds the dead alien and plans to use it to make money. Instead the alien kills him and exchanges his body for the aliens. Now when the kids come back with the police, nobody believes their story. They enlist the help of Joe’s friend Artie (Lyn Osborn) to stop the aliens.

It’s a teen drive in movie from the 50’s–it’s the teens against the aliens because the older people just don’t believe them. Also it was fun to see the Riddler in a different roll–kept waiting for him to say–“Riddle me this”.

It’s funny and corny, but I enjoyed watching it. —–6-10

I expected to be frightened on my wedding night, but nothing like this.
