Diane (Barbara Wilson) has gone temporarily mad, and her madness might
have been caused by an UFO flying by. Then she gets better and goes to
Switzerland, to meet up with her uncle Doctor Wilson (Robert Burton). From
here, the narrative inexplicably shifts to Lapland, which is in Sweden,
hundreds of miles away from Switzerland (Sweden and Switzerland don't even
share a border, and they're not even particularly close to each other),
where uncle and niece meet, and uncle takes niece to investigate an UFO
landing and introduces her to young Doctor Engström (Sten Gester), with
whom she eventually falls in love. Thing is, while the expedition is out
there to investigate the UFO, something - an exttraterrestrial giant
beast, as it will later turn out - destroys their airplane, and now Diane
and Engström ski off to get help for the others, but eventually, Diane is
abducted by the giant beast which also destroys a Lap village before geing
hunted down and thrown off a cliff by a Lap lynch mob.
There are also
some humanoid aliens in the plot, but I have no idea what they are doing.
his first cut-and-paste movie, director Jerry Warren has chosen the
Swedish-American co-production Terror
in the Midnight Sun - a rather odd choice, because while this film
had numerous shortcomings, it at least was based on a very stringent
narrative, was filmed in English and had a limited stateside release.
Still, Warren though he could somehow improve the film by adding scenes
(that make no sense in the context of the actual story), reshuffle scenes
around so they're torn out of context, reinterpret dialogue scenes by
voice-overs telling the audience what the on-screen actors are supposed to
say, and add an introduction featuring John Carradine that has pretty much
nothing to do with the actual movie. The result is a cinematic mess - and
yet, as a bad movie lover you can't help but maybe not love but at least
like the film as it is.
