Invasion of the Saucer-Men ★★

Invasion of the Saucer-Men is a generic 1950’s Sci-Fi B-movie. This film is essentially a story about an intergalactic hit and run. A young couple returning home after a make-out session in the woods run over an alien. The creatures arm then splits from its body somehow becoming sentient and begins stalking the couple.
Then through a series of unfortunate events the couple have to convince the Police they hit an alien as opposed to a local drunk who died at the same time. As-well as the military trying to cover up the existence of extraterrestrials.

The films plot is fairly average for it's time, there's nothing really new that this film brings to the table. The film acts more like a teen drama rather then a Sci-Fi film. In fact the aliens play a relegated role in the film maybe getting about 5-6 minutes of screen time at best. And for a Sci-Fi film that's predicated around aliens invading in its title, that was rather poor. The actors in the film were also pretty boring, and their plight was un-engaging. Over-all this film had a decent story, but the boring human characters and lack of aliens made this film feel completely dull. There is a plethora of better 50's Sci-Fi out there.
