They Came From Beyond Space

Group of meteors land in formation in a field in England. The scientist sent to investigate and all the people in the area  are taken over. That is all but Dr. Curtis Temple (Robert Hutton), he is immune to the takeover due to a metal plate in his head. It’s the classic man against invading aliens.

The special effects are more like 50″s than late 60’s, but it’s more about the story than it’s special effects.  Lucky for mankind there are humans like Dr. Temple ready to stop nasty alien takeovers.

Have you ever known meteors to land in formation?
