General Information

SYNOPSIS: An inexpensive but atmospheric sci-fi film, Man from Planet X takes
place on a lonely Scottish island. Science professor Raymond Bond is monitoring
the orbit of the mysterious "Planet X," which has entered the solar system and
is travelling close to Earth. A spaceship lands from this planet, out of which
pops a strange little man who looks something like an Easter Island statue. He
has come to make contact with friendly Earthlings, but evil scientist William
Schallert wants to exploit the spaceman's highly developed intellect for his own
selfish ends. Schallert's nastiness turns the alien against the other
Earthlings; the creature enslaves their minds and transforms them into zombies.
Both Schallert and the alien are eventually destroyed--as Planet X, failing to
establish a bond with Earth, spirals off into deep space.

Review by Craig Butler

Although filmed in six days on a ridiculously low budget (reportedly about
$50,000), The Man from Planet X manages to be a nifty little sc-fi picture (and
arguably the first of the alien invader sub-genre). Credit director Edgar G.
Ulmer, who knew how to make the most with the least, for the majority of Planet
X's success. Necessity being the mother of invention, Ulmer chose to shroud his
painted back drops in the thickest of fogs, creating in the process a film that
screams "atmosphere" from the get-go. Ulmer is also an old hand at creating
suspense and tension and resolving the same, and the first appearance of the
title character packs a pretty solid wallop, even today and in spite of the
phoniness of the alien. Note, too, that despite the shock that the appearance
carries, Ulmer takes the unusual option of having the character appear not as
omnipotent but as a creature in need of aid. Indeed, Ulmer and the screenwriters
deserve credit for the ambiguity they allow to permeate the script. While the
alien eventually has plans for world domination on his mind, it's not clear
whether he came to Earth with that in mind or whether he might have actually
been willing to consider a more collaborative arrangement. While the screenplay
on the whole is fairly typical of the genre, it is well packaged and plays its
hand very effectively. Throw in a good "B" cast, and the result is a worthy
little flick that's great to watch on a stormy night.
IMDB forums (march9hare)
A diminuative alien arrives on Earth in what looks for all the world like an
oversized Christmas tree ornament and terrorizes a sleepy little Scottish town.
Ultimately, both he and his spaceship are destroyed just as Planet X whisks by
the Earth. This early fifties sci-fi effort was rushed into production to
capitalize on Howard Hawks' "The Thing", and looks it. How rushed? Would you
believe a six day shooting schedule? Six days; that's all Mid-Century Films
could afford with a budget of less than $60,000. Shot on sets leased from the
Hal Roach Studios (most were originally used in the film "Joan of Arc") and with
less-than-convincing backdrops, this film somehow manages to capture a moody
atmosphere that's perfect for the genre. Add to this an eerie score, and you can
just overlook the genuinely hilarious alien. Everything about this creature
screams "CHEAP!!!", from the obvious duct tape around the mouthpiece to the
control valve on his backpack that looks like it was stolen from Alice Kramden's
sink. What optical effects there are are nicely rendered by Jack Glass, and most
of the performances are okay, especially that of Roy Engel, who plays Constable
Tommy with an accent that would make James Doohan envious. Margaret Field plays
Enid, Professor Eliot's daughter and the (we guess) love interest for Robert
Clarke, the American reporter. We used the modifier "we guess" because there's
no chemistry between the two, despite Clarke's repeated - and obvious -
advances. A good deal of the dialogue is pretty strained, as well. Example:
Prof. Eliot says to the two: "Let us concentrate on this remarkable object"
and:"Ssshh! The scale is delicate; it responds to a breath upon it." Does
anybody talk like this? Nobody we know. In spite of all this, plus the fact that
the terror is somewhat forced and just why the alien's spaceship comes equipped
with a hypnotic ray is never explained, believe it or not, "The Man from Planet
X" isn't really a bad film, just a cheap one, and Robert Schallert fans can add
a star. Try it; believe us, you COULD do worse!
