What is Beyond Space? A parking lot. Well anyway, this movie is a whacky british 1967 sci-fi film that is surprisingly watchable. It’s about these aliens who come down to take over the planet. But they can’t take over the leading man, because he was in a auto wreck and has a metal plate in his head.
Dr. Bill Cortner is a successful scientist, and has a beautiful fiance named Jan Compton. After a horrible car accident that decapitates Jan, Dr. Cortner rushes to his laboratory, where he revives the severed head and manages to keep it alive in a liquid-filled tray.
A desperate group are trapped on a remote island by a hurricane. On the island, a doctor works to make humans half-size. This, apparently, will reduce world hunger as smaller humans would presumably eat less. Unfortunately, his experiments have also created some giant, venomous shrews.
This futuristic tale features the top talents of Hollywood’s new generation including Jami Gertz, Lukas Haas and Jason Patric as prisoners in a fortress who plan their dazzling escape on wheels.
