Cinema Fiasco: Devil Girl from Mars
Starring: Patricia Laffan, Hugh McDermott, Hazel Court, Peter Reynolds, Adrienne Corri
A Martian seductress (wearing a PVC bondage outfit and fabulous 50s make-up) lands her flying saucer on the Scottish moors and starts rounding up men to use as breeding stock back home. What might have been just a cheaply made, dully scripted and badly directed 50s British sci-fi movie – and there’s nothing wrong with that! – is elevated to the realms of the sublime by Laffan in the title role. Whether shooting people with her ray gun (a special effect to be sure!) or sneering lines like “It amuses me to watch your puny efforts!” this is one of the most glorious camp performances you’ll ever see. The supporting cast includes Hammer Horror scream queen Hazel Court, Fraser from “Dad’s Army” and Devil Girl’s robot accomplice who looks like a refrigerator with legs.
Cinema Fiasco presents movies with live commentary. If you want to see this movie without humorous interruptions you should go seek an alternative presentation – and medical advice.
