Invasion Of The Saucer Men (1957) starring Frank Gorshin
Adults won’t listen, and the other teenagers are busy making out – who can stop the Invasion Of The Saucer Men? One of those “so bad it’s good” movies.
I have to admit, when I was watching Invasion Of The Saucer Men for the first time, I kept asking myself if it was a spoof or parody. Nope! It’s just that bad. However, it’s unintentionally funny. Isn’t that Frank Gorshun as the opportunistic drunk who plans to get rich? With the corpse of the little green man the teenagers ran over? Why, yes! Yes, it is. And he’s one of the highlights of this bad movie.
- The Saucer Men kill by …. intoxication? Their fingernails are hypodermic needles, that inject massive amounts of alcohol!
- The Saucer Men’s hand, when severed …. Still goes around, killing people!

A flying saucer lands in the woods and a teenage couple accidentally run down one of the aliens. A drunken opportunist stumbles across the alien’s corpse and he plans to store the body in his refrigerator. Other aliens soon arrive and when the teens return with the sheriff all they find is the man’s dead body. In the meantime the dead alien’s hand detaches itself from its host and runs amok.
