THIS ISLAND EARTH remains among the most poetic and dreamlike of 50's fantasies, full of imagery both wonderfully inventive and pointedly banal...

Description by

When atomic scientist Dr. Meacham (Rex Reason) is chosen to take part in a top research experiment in a remote lab, he quickly discovers that he is really involved in an evil scheme by alien Metalunans to take over Earth. After he and the gorgeous Dr. Adams (Faith Domerque) make their escape shortly before the lab explodes, they are whisked away in a flying saucer to Metaluna, where they are blamed for the destruction. Featuring incredible special effects that were 2 2/1 years in the making.

Product Description:

In a desperate attempt to save their civilization, benevolent aliens kidnap Earth scientists. This ground-breaking science fiction displays the best special effects of its time, and a close look reveals seeds of many later films, including "Star Wars," "Aliens," "Star Trek" and "Coneheads."
