The Night Caller [Blood Beast from Outer Space] ** (1965, John Saxon, Maurice Denham, Patricia Haines, Alfred Burke, John Carson, Jack Watson) – Classic Movie Review 3961


Director John Gilling injects some style into this fairly entertaining and enjoyable 1965 slice of cheaply made British sci-fi thriller.

The era’s mandatory minor American visiting star John Saxon to play the lead, Dr Jack Costain, is backed up by the usual strong cast of British stalwarts – Maurice Denham, Patricia Haines, Alfred Burke, John Carson, Jack Watson, Warren Mitchell, Stanley Meadows, Ballard Berkeley, Aubrey Morris, Anthony Wager and Robert Crewdson – making a notable impression and a useful contribution.


Screen-writer Jim O’Connolly’s thoughtful if implausible fantasy story about an extra-terrestrial mutant arriving from the infertile planet Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon, to abduct Earth girls for genetic reproduction reasons is adapted from a novel by Frank Crisp.
