Not bad at all....
"The Projected Man" is a film with a low overall score and this isn't surprising since it was featured on "Mystery Science Theater 3000"...a show that makes fun of old films. Many of the films featured on the show have been god-awful. And, since the films were lampooned on the show, folks incorrectly assume they're all schlock...which isn't really fair to the folks who made the movies. With "The Projected Man", you've got a dandy sci-fi film that IS worth seeing without all the "MST3000" sarcastic remarks.The film is about Professor Steiner's research on transporting items from one location to another through matter transmission--much like the "Star Trek" transporter system (which also debuted in 1966). They have no problem making inanimate objects disappear and reappear but it's not so easy with living creatures. What the professor and his team don't know is that some folks are deliberately trying to sabotage their work. Ultimately, Steiner does something VERY dumb-- -he uses the system on himself. There's an accident and he ends up being part man part monster...and he's determined to pay back the folks who sabotaged his work.While this is not a brilliant film, it's much more intelligent and thought out than you might suspect. It's NOT just a crappy monster film but is enjoyable and has a bit of depth to it. Worth seeing.
shocked at how hard everyone is on this movie
This movie is no sci-fi/horror masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination. But it is far better than most of the reviewers on IMDb would have you believe. It was originally released here in the USA on the second half of a double bill with the somewhat better ISLAND OF TERROR with Peter Cushing. I convinced my dad to take me to the drive- in for the bill when it was released, but it was a school night and he wouldn't tumble to staying for the second feature. Since then, it has been notoriously hard to track down. I finally saw it about a year ago and was surprised on how entertaining it was, especially considering how I had read various disparaging things about it in the interim. It does borrow elements from the earlier FLY pictures as well as the Karloff film, THE INVISIBLE RAY, and is by no means particularly original. However, since when does that really detract from the enjoyment factor of a low budget, sci-fi monster film? For the most part, you better resign yourself to that going in, or else stop watching films altogether. In its favor, it does move at a fast pace, has decent actors and color cinematography, some nice grisly shocks and certainly decent effects for a low budget sixties film from England. An added bonus, there is a distinctly assertive heroine scientist played by Mary Peach, a character who remains in possession of her wits, and aggressively intelligent without being obnoxious (her character is the sympathetic colleague of Bryant Halliday who becomes the tragically disfigured, death-dealing PROJECTED MAN) Undeserving of its bad rep.
Oops! Fried a guy!!
Scientist has terrible accident with his teleportation device and ends up horribly disfigured and with the power to electrocute people with his hand!Intriguing enough science-gone-wrong thriller from Britain. There's some decent suspense and occasional shock (no pun intended) to be had. The cast isn't half bad, star Bryant Haliday is the best as both the films tragic hero and semi-frightening villain. The makeup work on Haliday isn't half bad. Nice dramatic music score as well.Over all a decent enough sci-fi flick, but it doesn't match The Fly.** 1/2 out of ****
