Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 40 ratings.
I love this movie! It's different from most end of the world movies. I thought the acting was good, and the characters were believable. It's one of my favorite 1950's sci-fic classics.Check it out! I think you'll like it.
I enjoy B-movies, particularly Sci-Fi from the '50s. Roger Corman's classic "Day the World Ended" is the better of the two offerings on this DVD, and the ONLY reason for 4 stars. I first saw it at the tender age of 8 (on the Silver Screen of old) and it really creeped me out. Corman stalwart Paul Birch is there in all his glory along with fair-haired hero Richard Denning and tough-guy Mike ("Crash") Conners. Both Denning and Conners went on to notable careers in television. Anyway, "Day the World Ended" is an eerie film worthy of your attention. If only Corman had more money to work with (sigh).
As for "She Creature"...I don't know how Mystery Science Theatre 3000 overlooked this one. It begs to be put out of its misery.
