Alternate US video title: The Zoo

91 minutes (cut from original premiere length of 112 minutes)

A married couple travelling on an airplane encounter turbulence and land in a mysterious small town that has been sealed off from the rest of the world inside a mysterious bubble. Bewilderingly odd Poverty Row sci-fi, like an expanded but under-scripted Twilight Zone episode on drugs that still throws some thought-provoking ideas among the risible 3D effects and wooden acting and handling.

A Midwestern Magic-Vuers presentation/production.
Starring Michael Cole, Deborah Walley; guest star, Johnny Desmond.
Directed, produced and written by Arch Oboler; music by Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter; director of photography (CFI, widescreen, Space-Vision 3D), Charles Wheeler; art director, Marvin Chomsky; film editor, Igo Kantor; special effects, George Schlicher, Samuel Dockrey.
