Killers From Space (1954)

 

An atomic scientist claims he was abducted by aliens after being injured in a plane crash. 

Quite awful low-budget sci-fi alien invasion hokum is enjoyable for those who like bad effects and costumes, stock actors and a boring, predictable plot.

Maltin BOMB: "Poor in all departments - and too dull to be funny."

491 (1964)

 

A group of youth criminals who are chosen to participate in a social experiment, where they are assigned to live together in an apartment while being supervised by two forgiving social workers.

Deliberately provocative, often banned and censured, this social satire indeed presents some shocking moments; its message of mocking a liberal pedagogy is dubious, if not downright reactionary.
