"I Married a Monster From Outer Space" is surprisingly well-acted. Everyone is dead serious, and not in a campy way as the title might suggest. It works. There are even some genuinely chilling moments.

Lacks the polish of the science fiction classics of that era...but it shares the sincerity and appealing earnestness...
