Terror from the Year 5000 (1958) (part 7 of 8)
Later that evening, we see a black-caped nurse threading her way through the trees surrounding the Prof’s house. I guess nobody living on the island ever considered building one of them new-fangled “sidewalks” to take people from the dock to the house. In addition, no one has seen fit to warn the poor unsuspecting nurse that there’s a killer loose somewhere on the island. But as far as I’m concerned, the more “Eeee! Eeee!” the better.
We see Future Woman, still decked out in her Big Sequin Bodysuit as she catches a glimpse of the nurse. She calls out to her from the shadows in an unidentified language. The nurse stops and asks who’s there, and Future Woman cries out, “You’re speaking English!” The nurse asks what she expected, and Future Woman replies, “But the letters on the key were in Greek!” This is referring, of course, to Bob’s Phi Beta Kappa key [!]. Which begs the question: How would people from the year 5200 know ancient Greek? For that matter, how would they know current American English?
