DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A. D. / Who Were These Demons From Another World?? - 1966
Here's the follow up to DR. WHO AND THE DALEKS from a year earlier, based on a story from the BBC TV serial, DOCTOR WHO. The story goes like this... Dr. Who and his companions arrive on Earth in the year 2150 AD, only to discover that the planet has been invaded and its population enslaved by the dreaded Daleks. Our time travelers assist human resistance groups to foil the Daleks' plan to mine the Earth's core.
It stars Peter (THE CREEPING FLESH) Cushing, Bernard (FAWLTY TOWERS) Cribbins, Ray (THE FLESH AND BLOOD SHOW) Brooks, Andrew (FIVE MILLION YEARS TO EARTH) Keir, Roberta (THE BEAST IN THE CELLAR) Tovey and Jill (DR. SYN, ALIAS THE SCARECROW) Curzon.
Dr. Who and his pals land their phone booth lab in the year 2150, a policeman goes into the booth but when they come out, the city has been devastated. So, like, what in the Hell has happened here?!
After some investigating, the doc and Tom spot something coming out of the water. Dr. Who has seen these little demons before, it's them goddamn Daleks!!
They gas humans to start with, then take them to a special lab to make them obedient slaves!
Here are a couple of shots of the Dalek's underground structures, looks like lotsa fun!
I swear, there's like 20 minutes of comedy relief after a few humans infiltrate the Dalek's defense and pretend to be one of the invaders' slaves... Goofy with comedic music even!.. What the Hell, even!!
Then, the mother ship makes a landing, bringing more problems for the humans! This spaceship appeared in another British movie that we've reviewed, but, I totally can't remember what the title is. That gots to be one of the stupidest spaceship designs ever (I probably wrote the same thing about the other ship in movie I can't remember). Those teeny tiny landing gear in proportion with the thing itself are just.. freakin'.. Horrible! It also looks like a luxury liner, scary color too! (actually, I think that other movie is THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE)
Anywho, more Daleks have arrived and one jackass human turns the doc in for a reward!!
Here's a glimpse of the area the Daleks are mining, with its eerie glow and all.
Dr. Who gets the Daleks to explain what their mission is, and gets lots more info to boot.
The people use an ore bucket and knock over a Dalek just standing there in front of the rails! And then, the Dalek's power generator gets rolled down a shaft to its demise!
The Daleks all load into their spaceship and have the place rigged to explode!
Everything's going bonkers in the Dalek's underground installation... WHEEEE!!
The mountain blows the Hell up, and suddenly, the ship loses power and crashes into the countryside, destroying every single Dalek on board!!
Well, everything turns out great, Tom is sent back to his time sans the Dalek invasion!.. Tune in Wednesday when Eegah!! lets loose with more of his Dungeon spin!
