PG Certificate


Our Score
This sombre sci-fi thriller was a pallid attempt by Hammer rivals Amicus to rehash some of the themes from the Quatermass series. Astral invaders take over a Cornish factory to enslave Earthlings so they'll repair a spaceship that has crashed on the Moon. Fortunately, astrophysicist Robert (The Slime People) Hutton has a metal plate in his head, which makes him immune from alien control, and he single-handedly combats the evil extraterrestrials, led by stalwart genre icon Michael Gough.


An ordinary man is the world's only hope against a force of invading aliens because a metal plate in his skull makes him immune to their powers. Sci-fi adventure, starring Robert Hutton, Jennifer Jayne, Zia Mohyeddin and Bernard Kay.
