Mario Bava's affectingly sleazy but elegantly conceived 1965 genre piece (also known as Demon Planet
) puts warm-blooded Barry Sullivan on a seriously anemic planet. Another qualified triumph from the director of Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs
and Hercules in the Haunted World
; as Bava again demonstrates, there was more to 60s Italian film than Fellini and Antonioni. 86 min.
