Storyline

In a Scottish inn, the owners, employees and guests are reunited in the bar. Our of the blue, a flying saucer lands nearby and a woman dressed in black leather like a dominatrix with a cape arrives in the bar armed with a ray-gun. She explains that she is Nyah from Mars, and she was heading to London. However her spacecraft collided with an airplane and was damaged; therefore she had to land to repair the saucer. She also explains that she is looking for men to breed her female race since the male population is dying after warfare between males and females and they need offspring. Nyah has the robot Chani to help her to capture men, but she wants that one of the men volunteers to go with her to Mars. Who might be the volunteer? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I'd been wanting to see this classick Brit piece of sci-fi for many decades, and must say that it was almost worth the wait. This flick is almost like a poor man's "Day the Earth Stood Still," except that instead of Michael Rennie, we get a British lassy playing some kind of Martian dominatrix, and instead of the wonderful Gort, we get one of the most lumbering and ridiculous-looking robots in film history. Still, the acting is fair, especially the always wonderful Hazel Court, and the effects pretty cool...especially the incredible explosion at the film's end. All in all, not the worst time killer that one could imagine, and a must for all fans of British sci-fi and/or Martian dominatrix movies.
