When meteorites crash-land in the perfect formation of the letter V, the Ministry of Extraterrestrial Life on Other Planets (MELOP) led by Dr. Curtis Temple (Robert Hutton) is sent to investigate. The scientists and local bystanders soon find themselves possessed by an alien force which wants to enslave them.
No one is
immune from the invasion except for Dr. Temple, who is shielded from the
meteor’s influence by a metal plate that was inserted to protect his
skull after a recent accident. He discovers that an alien race on the
moon seeks to use the manipulated scientists for secret purposes. But,
as Temple learns more about the invaders, he realises that they may not
be as evil as he once thought.
Starring Robert Hutton, Jennifer Jayne, Zia Mohyeddin and Bernard Kay THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE was written by Milton Subotsky, the acclaimed screenwriter of Dr Who and the Daleks and Tales from the Crypt, adapted from the book ‘The Gods Hate Kansas’ by Joseph Millard.
An enjoyably camp B-movie, the Amicus producers followed in the tradition of 50s classics such as Invasion of the Bodysnatchers adding some 60s kitsch-styling and ingenious low-budget special effects for this British retro treat.
