The Time Machine (1960)



Reviews and Comments

Fans of H. G. Wells' novel may find this screen adaptation interesting but may be disappointed by how gutted the story is. Gone are the Wells' intelligent musings of the fate of humanity; instead, this film little more substantial than a standard creature feature from the waning heyday of the monster movie. On that level, the movie works, and the special effects were impressive at the time.
