THE MAGNETIC MONSTER
(USA, 1953) 76 minutes
"With the discovery of atomic power the government has set up a special group, the Office of Scientific Investigation or OSI, to look into strange phenomena. Those who work there are known as A-Men (A as in Atom) and they are called in when a local appliance store owner finds that all of their products have become highly magnetized. The scientists are puzzled but their investigation leads them to a scientist who has invented a new element of tremendous power. Unless they can find a way to stop its growth, it will destroy the Earth."

"Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead."
