I know things have changed and we're far more sensitive to these things now (which is a good thing), but I just can't believe all those shots at the beginning of the creepy Air Force dudes using that sophisticated surveillance equipment to spy on teenagers making out didn't creep out audiences back when this first came out. Was that supposed to be funny?

Man, parts of this movie were downright cartoonish. Like it was meant to be a comedy when they made it.

The stock footage at 18.00 showing the spaceship landing came from Invaders from Mars, an even more icon sci-fi film.

I love Joel's attempt to explain why some aliens aren't wearing a body costume because "they're females so they have less plumage". A better devil's advocate than this movie deserves. I also love how it seems to suddenly dawn on Joel that the makers didn't care about the movie. He just keeps saying "they didn't care" with increasing disbelief and exasperation.

I'd hate to be the guy who had to clean up after that segment with all the confetti or whatever that was joel was throwing around. They also keep mispronouncing the title as attack of the eye creatures when it's attack of THE the eye creatures.

Who's the guy who says "Mystery science theater 3000 episode (insert number here) reel 1" at the beginning of some of the episodes. He always sounds like he just woke up, has a cold, really doesn't like his job or some combination of the three. He doesn't sound like any of the guys on the show but it's the same voice every time.

Well .. they actually DID have lots of technology in the 50's .. I mean if Disney could make 20,000 Leagues under the sea in 1954 .. or MGM with Forbidden Planet in 1956 .. then you realize that with 'TALENTED PEOPLE' .. anything could be done.

Which brings us to to brain dead morons that made this utter crap. This movie is just crap. It's boring, dumb and it fucking boils my brain that anyone would release this turd fest.

As the guys quite eloquently put it .. 'They just DIDN'T care". All too true. A lot of this films dumbassedness (yes I realize I made that word up) could have been avoid by proper scheduling (night scenes actually filmed at night!), a script that wasn't penned and edited by a group of lazy chimps .. and actors that weren't the kind of people you'd dearly LOVE to shoot in the face because they're so fucking annoying.

I make 'no budget' indie films so I know what can and can't be done on a small amount of money .. and believe me we're not using much that they didn't have access to back then. Sure the camera's and edit suite are much better .. but they still had camera's and editors! And of this film .. the editing and photography isn't its biggest problem. It's HUGE problem is with a script that you would gladly wipe your ass with if you thought it wouldn't give you splinters .. and an awful cast of total cretins .. and a director who clearly had his head up his ass during the whole shoot.

Why the hell is our 'young hero' (I use the term young lightly since he looks about 18 going on 40!) is such a boring twat. You desperately want the eye creatures to get their shit together and kill everyone .. but sadly no.

Oh boy is this one ever a shit-fest. Thank fuck that Joel and the bots manage to rip it to teeny tiny little itty-bitty pieces .. this film soooooooooo needs it.

So I'm carrying a passel of observations here.

This is one of the very few experiments I saw before I saw them on MST. I remembered it because of the "smoochers get off my propity" guy. But...how could I forget that hair-do? My god, it's extraterrestrial! A stealth alien escaping discovery in the general bedlam. Wow!

The police sergeant who answers the phone? It has to be a much younger version of the mean sheriff in "Squirm." I never noticed the resemblance before but I just watched "Squirm" a few days ago, so his smuggery is fresh in my mind.

Also, kudos on the RIck roll!

This is also probably the most realistic depiction of night I've seen in any movie.
You know, how it seamlessly transitions between light and dark almost at random? Like, you'll go to sleep and it's dark, and then you blink and it's light again, so you turn around and it goes all dark, and then you go downstairs for a glass of milk and it's light again, but by the time you get back into bed it's dark....
Yeah.

It has to be said that 'Red Zone Cuba' was slightly! less stupid than this film! I mean what the f*** is with the Day for day shots .. and that they thought somehow everyone would think it was night time??

And teenagers .. in their late 20's??

Why the hell is the lead 'teenager' so boring you'd think he's going to spring (slowly) in to a lecture on economics at any moment!! Oh boy this film is just dumb, dumb, DUMB!!!

The TRULY f***ed up thing about it ... is that it's probably more enjoyable to watch than any given Marvel, or Hollywood film :P Cos as much as you can hate this movie .. at least it's unpopular too. Only weird people like us lot would actually watch this crap!

A terrible movie .. saved by the skilful riffing of Joel and the bots. Makes you wonder if the director of the piece of sh*t knew that in the future there'd be this TV show that would have a lot of fun at their expense .. and they figured what the hell .. lets give 'em all the riff fodder we can.

I don't think there's any other explanation .. other than 'they just DIDN'T care!!'

Not only does this film feature nearly-harmless monsters anyone could easily outrun (the worst offender still has to be The Creeping Terror), it takes the surly sheriff trope to a new low: the police won't come to citizens' aid when called, or even come to arrest them for criminal acts!

Look and listen to the guy in the diner (black hair on the left) at 18:35. It's none other than Jody "Critter Jones" Daniels ! Girl in Gold Boots was made three years later but that voice is unmistakable. Especially the way he exagerates the 'wh' at the beginning of words.

ATTENTION: The United States Air Force would like to express that the Air Force personnel depicted in this film eavesdropping on the amorous activities of American teenagers no longer represents active USAF policy. The operation known as “Project Lewd Look” (no relation to Project Blue Book) was officially terminated in December 1969 and concluded: “No make-out session reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security.” Nothing was ever seen, officially.

Well, I did see a little something, and one time, if you turned your head just right, I swear you could see everything! Oh, man! Er, um, that is to say, I what likely saw was civilian aircraft, flares, or natural atmospheric phenomena, officially.
