Future Schlock

She travels through time in a race
as scientists try to keep pace
The future will need
a man for his seed
But first she must steal someone's face

This cheapie was titled in error
It's lacking both budget and terror
A time-travel mess
that says, more or less,
beware of a stolen face wearer

Youthful Norm Knott was terrified by the hideous high-heeled face-stealing woman-from-the-future with the hypnotic fingernails. Or maybe it was her four-eyed cat? In any case, Terror From the Year 5000 (Robert J. Gurney Jr, 1958) was another of our Childhood Chills. It was originally released on a double-bill with the equally execrable, The Screaming Skull.
