Terror from the Year 5000 (1958) (part 8 of 8)

We cut back to the guys outside and find that they’ve come across the faceless nurse. Prof asks, “Who do you suppose she is?” and stutters, “There’s no… no…” but never completes the thought. Then he starts singing “Eyes Without a Face” by Billy Idol. Bob somehow guesses it’s the nurse, which inevitably leads to them having one of those “If she’s the nurse, then who’s in the house?” moments and they both hurry back.

Victor, meanwhile, is staring intently at his Electrical Arc Generator as it generates electrical arcs. Claire tries to convince him that he’s been hypnotized, but Victor refuses to listen, saying that he’s got to go to the future. Claire calls him “confused”, prompting Future Woman to start barking at Claire.

Future Woman: It’s you who are confused! Our history clearly records how the women of the twentieth century stood idly by while the atmosphere was contaminated! And the children of the future doomed!
