Our Score
Parachutists pass through a red mist and disappear into thin air. And before long you will, too! Is there any point in sticking around to find out it's alien Maurice Evans putting sky divers in suspended animation and substituting duplicates? Not really. A shame top agents Patrick Allen and Neil Connery (Sean's kid brother) don't reach the same conclusion after investigating a top-secret space research lab, in this talky, laughably low-budget and hopelessly inept clone of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. What was George Sanders thinking of when he agreed to appear in this sci-fi belly flop?

Summary

Two military investigators try to crack the case of a paratrooper who disappeared without trace in mid-air - and stumble on a sinister alien plot. Sci-fi thriller, starring Maurice Evans, George Sanders and Neil Connery.
