When the fingerprints of Hotchkiss' throat match that of the deceased astronaut, Steve (Peter Brock) and Dr. Weitzberg (Kent Taylor) respond from NASA in DC. The skipper isn't happy that the big boys in Washington are taking over the case, and refuses to cooperate. On their own, Steve and the doctor go see Paul, but now Paul has been taken over by the alien life form and is now running through the streets with homicide in mind. Now an alien fiend, Paul stalks the beautiful Swede, Miss Iceland. With a hand and Paul loose, will the Earth survive?
Campy effects and good acting enhance "The Crawling Hand." It is always great to see Alan Hale, even when he isn't playing the skipper. Miss Iceland. when on the screen, with a phony Swedish accent, is always a good thing. I'm told that if you mention Sirry Steffen (Miss Iceland) in Sweden, you will have a snowball thrown at you. Enjoy "The Crawling Hand."
