The script must've been written by the evil floating brain himself!

While watching this movie I felt like my own brain was going to explode, for about 6 times. All the characters seem to live in some kind of fantasy world where people encounter giant floating brains and stoned-looking possessed men with superpowers every now and then. No-one shows a smallest sign of disbelief; especially the representatives of the UN must be really busy traveling around the world to negotiate with psychos that release maniac laughter after their every claim.

Fun to watch, but prepare to be stunned by the brains' superpowers, or the plot in general.

Loved finding a site relating to this movie. I have NEVER been able to forget this movie in all my years since I first saw it on Ernie Anderson's GOULARDI show when I was a kid growing up in Akron (cleveland ohio area). John Agar was the best B Movie actor of his time. Thanks for the memories.

There is really is an ultra sensitive radiation detector called a ...Scintillator. It uses an image intensifier tube to detect the flashes caused by beta and alpha particles on a zinc sulfide screen.
  It is so sensitive that was commonly flown on airplanes to detect the slight radioactivity of dinosaur bones from the air.
  The technology dates from before the 1940's.

So the reviewer got this detail wrong.

My comment about scintillators was actually addressed to the jabutto review, where he says:
//
As they pack, Steve asks Dan to try out the ‘sinilator’ (or something). This proves to be a device resembling an Art Deco hair dryer attached to a black box. I assume this is supposed to be a directional Geiger counter

Sorry

I love this movie!, for some reason it just seems to come off really well considering how ridiculous it all is.
Did Sally's father appear in 'The Adams family' or 'The Munster's' ?.
I've definitely seen him before.
It's been rightly described as a fun movie, and i can only go along with that.
Classic American 50's Sci-fi.

Yes: he played "Mr. Jennings" in one episode of The Addams family.

This movie is so stupid. I wish I'd watched it with someone so I could point out all the ridiculousness as it happened. There are so many points in the movie where the plot doesn't add up or there is some hideously contrived scene to shuffle the weak story along.

The final scene is the icing on the cake, after careful examination of the encyclopedia Britannica it seems the secret method to destroy the evil brain is bludgeon it with an axe while it is outside the dude's body. Gee, glad we had the super alien genius from another planet to advise such a course of action. The final scene of the movie does provide a good chuckle though, especially as you can clearly see the wires jerking the brain about.

John Agar was married to Shirley Temple. Also a lot of the cast is part of the AIP "Ensemble" they are recycled to marvelous effect in other masterworks such as Blood of Dracula and How to Make a Monster, which are even badder than this actually. . . and come together on one DVD and are very rewarding to watch side by side because they use the same plot and character templates down to the minute practically!

I just like to point out that this is a 50's B-movie, so of course there will be goofs and yes, it's a monster b-movie so stuff won't add up at some points.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
