Since the closing of science fiction cinema's Golden Age (the 1950s) far fewer sci-fi films were release each year. 1960 had far less than 1959. 1961 had a couple less than 1960. 1962 had a bit less than 1961. Curiously, almost none of them were "home grown." Reworked and dubbed foreign sci-fi films made up the bulk of the offerings for '62 audiences to enjoy.
Planets Against Us -- Italian production about stealthy alien cyborgs, all patterned after one dead human, sabotaging earth's space efforts.
Journey to the Seventh Planet -- Joint American & Danish production about an alien on Uranus that can conjure things, beautiful or terrible, from men's thoughts.
Creation of the Humanoids -- A future of mankind's slow extinction and eventual replacement by robots so advanced that even they don't know they're robots.
Underwater City -- A city on the sea floor is proposed as the answer to mankind's problems. It is built, but disaster strikes.
Invasion of the Animal People -- Originally a '59 Swedish sci-fi about an alien landing in northern Lappland and a Yeti which rampages.
The Brain That Wouldn't Die -- A mad/gifted surgeon rescues his fiancee's head from a car crash, then searches for a suitable body to transplant it to.
