Nicely handled by all concerned.
Reasonably entertaining entry into the 50s sci fi/horror genre.
Star John Hoyt was always interesting to watch (check out his brief but commanding performance as antique shop proprietor Nils Dryer in "The Big Combo").
The basic theme of this film had, in fact, already been tried out the year before in the vastly superior "Incredible Shrinking Man". However, the 'puppet twist' (good name for a song!) was certainly an original touch.
Co-star John Agar is smoothly competent and does his best against the odds.
Strictly for those whose tastes lean towards the ultra-cheesy variety of midnight movie fare.
