Reviewed on 1/15/2010...
These are often comically bad, but there are a few noteable movies.

Flash Gordon: Rocketship seems to be largely the inspiration for the "recent" 80's Flash Gordon movie, and is probably the most entertaining movie on here. ALso of note is Night of the Blood Beast which is about puts its alien babies into a human in much the same way as in Alien.

Movie Reviews

This is the way to do it
R. Wallace | St. Louis, Mo USA | 03/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've never liked buying a DVD with just one movie on it. Guess what -- my prayers were answered, in the form of Classics from Outer Space. Three DVDs, for about $10 depending on where you buy them, with 10 movies! Fourteen hours! Woo hoo! I swoon! This particular set of discs contains:

"Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women"
"Flash Gordon: Rocketship"
"Phantom from Space"
"Embryo"
"Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet"
"Killers from Space"
"Night of the Blood Beast"
"The Day the Sky Exploded"
"Attack from Space"
"Assignment: Outer Space"

I am raptured! And there are other sets like these!

P.S. The movies range from "suck" to "not bad at all." The impressive "Flash Gordon" is the best, and worth the price of the DVD.

You Get What You Pay For
Mad Dog | Canada | 04/09/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The titles should tell you enough about the movies to know what you're getting into: b-movies from the 30's (Flash Gordon) to the '70's (Embryo).

Be warned, the transfers vary from tolerable to awful. Nothing here is in good condition: "Assignment Outer Space", "Attack From Space"; "Voyage To The Prehistoric Planet" and "Voyage To the Planet Of Prehistoric women" (the last two are re-edits and redubs of the same Russian SF film) are all the same quality as their stand alone DVDs (I suspect they are from the same masters) -- any colors have faded (yeah yeah, I know most of them are black and white, but in 2004 I saw excepts from the original footage used for the two Russian films and the color was wonderful).

"Embryo" looks like a VHS dub (seriously), and the other films are all in various states of decay.

My guess is the distributor aquired a series of TV video masters and made a fast compilation. Unfortunately it's unlikely these films will ever be presented in anything like their original condition.

So until someone retransfers and remasters these films into DVD resolution this collection is probably the best value for money you will find."
Ten Science Fiction Movies of Public Domain Goodness
Charles J. Rector | Woodstock, IL United States | 06/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Classics From Outer Space is a collection of ten science fiction movies that have only one thing in common: they are all public domain and as such it is possible for them to be presented in highly affordable collections. I paid $9.98 for my set and that comes down to about a dollar per movie. The way that movie tickets cost nowadays, you really cannot complain about this collection.

An added bonus of this collection is the fact that many of these movies are not available on other public domain collections. A further bonus is a chapter from the Radar Men From the Moon serial.

Anyways, here is how I rate the movies in Classics From Outer Space:




Great:


Flash Gordon: Rocketship (1936)
Phantom From Space (1953)
The Day the Sky Exploded (1957)


Good:

Attack From Space (1959)
Killers From Space (1954)
Night of the Blood Beast (1958)

Average:


Assignment: Outer Space (1961)
Embryo (1976)

Bad:

Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women (1968)
Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet (1965)"
