As someone on IMDB said "were the filmmakers intentionally competing to see who could come up with the most ridiculous looking aliens? When it comes to getting laughs, the bug-eyed beetle-browed killers from space are second only to Corman's conquering turnip. But it's a close second, and they get a good deal more speaking lines and screen time.   Modern film makers actually trying to make their monsters amusing have never been able to create aliens as hilarious as this."

Late night with the lights off and a warm drink recommended.
