Critic Reviews for I Married a Monster from Outer Space

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1)

"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.

November 7, 2013 | Full Review…

A tongue-in-cheek examination of the ways commitment tends to toy with the male brain.

October 1, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Acerbic satire of matrimony

September 6, 2009 | Full Review…

One of those many 1950's cheesy hokum low-budget Cold War paranoic sci-fiers.

April 5, 2009 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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

June 21, 2005 | Full Review…

Popular cult film that, like I Walked With a Zombie, has the unfortunate distinction of being a quality picture saddled with a wretched title.

Audience Reviews for I Married a Monster from Outer Space

like 'the stepford wives' and many others, Gloria talbott is duly concerned when her newly married husband is not nearly as attentive as he was pre-nuptials. does familiarity indeed breed contempt ... or is there another, more sinister, reason??? fun at the drive-in with this forgotten romp in the alien-held woods, as the swamp creatures from another galaxy endeavor, in true 50's style, to impregnate earth women!

OK B-grade flick about a town where all the men are replaced by lookalike aliens. Kinda crappy effects and mediocre performances, but for a movie like this, that's not going to matter that much. A bit like Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets the Stepford Wives. A decent timewaster for a rainy Thursday morning (which is when I saw it.)
