Outer Limits: Galaxy Being 1995 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This is the first episode and a great start to the series!
Cliff Robertson plays Allan Maxwell, a radio station engineer for KXKVI who is using all the power of the station for his own purposes of discovering something important. Even though his family feels that he is wasting his time on something dangerous, Allan is convinced that he will be successful. His hard work is paid off when he is able to establish contact with an alien being. He communicates with the alien and they talk about human features, death, and God. However, Allan has to leave the station to attend a party on his honor, and tells the new DJ Eddie Phillips (played by Bert Metcalfe), not to turn the power up in any way. But, Eddie wants his voice to be heard everywhere, so he turns up the power. Due to this, the alien is transported into Earth, where it unintentionally starts creating chaos for the citizens of that town.
The main reason why I liked this episode so much is because it gives a simple message: Don’t feel scared about something that is new to you; instead try to understand it. Instead of freaking out by the alien, he decides to communicate with it, and finds that it is harmless. If everyone followed this message (in general situations) even in today’s world, we probably wouldn’t be having so many problems! Anyway, the special effects for the alien were really good and effective, especially for that time. Cliff Robertson played well as Allan Maxwell.
This entire episode is very interesting, and in the end, it makes you wonder how you would have reacted in such a situation (if one ever came up).
To quote the Galaxy Being: “There is much you have to learn. You must explore. You much reach out.”
