Nurse Nadine (Beverly Garland) gets a job offer she can't afford to refuse: To be the private nurse of Mr Johnson (Paul Birch), an eccentric suffering from a rare blood disease. She's paid a ridiculous amount of money too, and the job isn't even that difficult, she just gives the man a few infusions each day and has the rest of the time off to sunbath by Johnson's pool or whatever. It's just ... Johnson's assistant Jeremy (Jonathan Haze) suspects Johnson of, well, something, since he has repeatedly seem people enter the house who never leave. At first, Nadine pays little heed, but after a while she grows suspicious as well, and even finds evidence there is something sinister going on - but her doctor friend and former boss Dr Rochelle (William Roerick) laughs off all her justified suspicions.

Of course, there really is something wrong with Johnson, he is an alien from another planet trying to figure out if human blood is becoming his race (which is why he likes to invite people to his house, to drain them of their blood), and if yes, he and his race plan to harvest the earth. Of course, with nosey Jeremy around, it's only a matter of time if something will leak, so Jeremy is killed. So is Dr Rochelle, who was actually under Johnson's hypnotic control, but one can't be safe enough, right? As for Nadine, Johnson wants to send her up to his planet via teleporter, a voyage no human has survived yet ... but Nadine's cop boyfriend (Morgan Jones) ultimately saves the day.

Dick Miller has a hilarious scene as a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman trying to sell his product to Johnson.


One of Roger Corman's most enduring films his early drive-in era (heck, it got remade not once but twice even) - but not one of his better films. Basically, the story is too formulaic, Paul Birch with white eyes and sunglasses might look scary enough but doesn't cut it as an alien, and somehoe, the film's a bit short in the action department.

That's all not to say that the film's a total failure, if you like science fiction drive-in fare from the 1950's, there's certainly plenty to like about this one - but it's certainly not a film Roger Corman deserves to be remembered by.
