Conquerers From A Dying World
What can I say about Amicus production 'They Came From Beyond Space'? Well, it's cheap, cheerful, utterly ridiculous and, apart from some slightly psychedelic effects, looks more like 1957 than 1967.
It's an underwhelming affair, but it's inoffensive and unpretentious, and the mind control combat colander never fails to raise a smile. The late Michael Gough gives a performance that could be described as 'arch', although 'insanely camp' covers it better. If only they'd got The Pink Floyd to do the soundtrack.
