Rik Van Nutter,
A space probe returns to Earth covered with a strange fungus. The fungus is accidentally tinged with human blood and is transformed into an ever-growing pile of space rust, dubbed "Blood Rust". It is up to John Hand and Joe Rattigan to find the one woman who can stop the rust from spreading and taking over the world.Written by

Prior to landing the blood rust is seen outside the plane windows, and passengers react in panic to this sight; however, there is no sign of the fungus as the plane lands, nor immediately after as the passengers are now calmly offloaded and taken to waiting buses. See more »

It was surprising that being a fan of 1950's science fiction I had not heard of Space Master X-7 until Channel 4 screened it some years ago, so I set the video and then added this movie to my collection and I quite enjoyed watching it. This is rather an obscure movie and doesn't seem to available on VHS or DVD anywhere, so it is a good job I kept the TV copy.
A satellite searching for life in space returns from Earth and a scientist collects samples from it and takes them with him back to his lab where he experiments on them. He wasn't expecting his lover to be there and she leaves later. While experimenting on these samples, they begin to grow into large masses and kill him. His lover has been contaminated and a search starts for her. She goes on the run when she finds about his death, thinking she is wanted for murder. All she is wanted for is to be decontaminated from the Blood Rust. She is eventually tracked down while on a plane to Honalulu and this turns back when she owns up while in the baggage compartment, the mass of Blood Rust is getting bigger. The plane lands safely without its landing gear and everybody is safe and taken away for decontamination.
Space Master X-7 is shot well in black and white and in some ways is similar to The Quatermass Xperiment.
I've never heard of any cast members in this movie apart from one of The Three Stooges, Moe Howard who plays a cabbie.
Space Master X-7 is worth checking out, that is if you can get hold of a copy. Excellent.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
