One of the most memorable titles of the 50's sci-fi/horror era is really a good little shocker in it's own right. Gloria Talbott marries Tom Tryon expecting marital bliss. Wrong. He won't make love to her, his behavior is weird, the dog is afraid of him, he disappears at night, etc., and spooky stuff is going on in the woods. It's a small town and some of his friends notice these things too. But then THEY start acting weird, there's a monster zapping people to death and pretty soon no one believes Gloria's concerns. Talbott made some campy films in the 50's but this is one of the better ones. And of course everyone knows that Tryon wrote the classic "The Other" that was made into a wonderful film. So "Monster" is a welcome addition to DVD for fans for many reasons. The monsters are pretty cool for the era and there's a great scene of Tryon standing on a balcony and lightening flashes revealing his true appearance. This is the kind of 50's fun that I wish was more available on DVD. Watch for this one.

Despite having one of the worst, most misleading titles in movie history, "I Married a Monster From Outer Space" is a solid, often chilling science fiction movie, with some very good acting and an excellent script. You won't find a mindless us versus them story here, which makes it all the more effective.
Bill Farrell ((Tom Tryon) was having a last drinking spree with some pals, the night before his wedding. But the next day, Bill arrives late to the church, and on the honeymoon he seems strangely preoccupied and distant. His new bride, Marge (Gloria Talbot), is a bit worried by her husband's sudden change, but tries to keep going as if nothing has happened. But a year passes, and Bill is still acting weird -- so, for that matter, are his pals.
One night (after the mystery deaths of a couple of animals), Marge follows Bill into the woods -- only to see a strange glowing alien emerge from his body and enter a spaceship. Terrified, Marge tries to get help, but she has no way of knowing who's an alien and who isn't. And when she learns why the aliens have come, and why they've impersonated human males, she enlists the help of the remaining humans to help her.
"I Married A Monster" is an example of story triumphing over budgets and special effects. While the script isn't flawless (if the aliens can't tolerate alcohol, why doesn't Marge use that as a test?), the gradual buildup of tension, and the feeling of helplessness, is wonderfully done. Things as small as stumbling over a dead cat are imbued with horror, and the "less is more" exposure of the aliens in their true forms adds a great low-key tone to it. The special effects and costumes, though primitive by current standards, are surprisingly convincing.

Hampered with one of the most sensationalistic titles in all movie history this little gem of a thriller has been unfairly dumped in the "Shlock Cinema" bin for too long. Under the terrible title lurks a taut and quite eerie story in the same vein as the classic "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers". I only saw this film for the first time recently and I was very impressed by the good acting,exciting story and eerie feel that was in every frame of the film. It really is one of the finer efforts of the Sci Fi 1950's period and deserves better press than it generally gets.
"I Married A Monster From Outer Space", tells the disturbing story of a young man Bill Farrell (Tom Tryon) who on the eve of his wedding is captured by sinister aliens from a dead world beyond our Solar System . Their purpose is to take over the bodies of a number of earth men so that they can procreate with earth women in the hope of repopulating their dying world. In true bodysnatcher style the men once taken over, are only outwardly as they were but within are actually the aliens who's features are revealed again during things like electrical storms etc. The new bride Marge (Gloria Talbot) begins to realise that something is very wrong with Bill who no longer has any of the old emotions about him. Highly suspicious Marge follows him through the woods one evening only to discover the terrible truth as she witnesses a glowing alien emerging from the outer body of her husband. What in fact is her supposedly loving husband is in reality a fiendish alien with evil intent. The race is then on for Marge to try and alert the townspeople of the terror in their midst.

This movie is in the same vein as Invasion Of The Body Snatchers but manages to set itself apart by giving you the aliens perspective.
Gloria Talbott,as the lead,isnt very engaging but does an acceptable job.Tom Tryon,on the other hand,does an admirable job,deftly walking a thin line between sympathetic alien and evil fiend.
The story itself moves at a casual pace.This isnt an action packed film but it never slows down to the point where you find yourself getting bored.In fact,there are two scenes of alien/human confrontation between the 30 minute and 50 minute mark that seemed to be thrown in at the last minute in order to keep the viewer from losing interest.
The final battle between the humans and aliens is exciting and features outstanding spfx.I also really dug the look of the creatures.
I would definetly recommend this movie but you have to be interested in the story to make it to the end.If you liked Invasion Of The Body Snatchers then you'll find a lot to like about this film.But if the idea of aliens taking over human bodies doesnt interest you then stay away.
