"As far as mad scientist byproducts go, they're a juggernaut."
‑ Rob Humanick,
"Pior do que o roteiro, só mesmo os efeitos visuais. E as atuações. E a direção. E..."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Falls into the wave of horror productions that presented atomic radiation as the new boogeyman of the postwar era"
‑ Shane Burridge,
"A cinematic bad trip of the highest order."
‑ Ian Berriman, SFX Magazine
"Way above average 50s sci-fi with great monsters."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"This is just another mutant B-flick that is missing most of its brain."

"And honestly, how much animus should any percipient genre enthusiast ever direct at a movie bearing the tagline, 'Invisible monsters suck out your brains!'?"
‑ Mark Bourne,
"a well-crafted and generally suspenseful genre flick that has held up surprisingly well"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
