Some meteors have crashed down on earth that are only eventually found out to have been UFOs. The gouvernment wants Great Britain's leading alien-expert Doc Temple (Robert Hutton) to investigate, but he has only recently had an accident that left him with a silver plate in his head, and now his doctor thinks he's unfit for such an expedition, so Temple sends his assistant (and girlfriend) Lee Mason (Jennifer Jayne) to head the whole thing. Problem is of course that the aliens in questions are taking over all the scientists working on the investigations and use them to build a rocket launch, and when Doc Temple comes for a friendly visit, the aliens first try to take him over, and after they can't because of his silver plate, they (and especially their human host bodies) react with hostility towards Temple and often threaten his life - but always refrain from killing him.

Eventually, the plague breaks out, and the aliens in human form (of whom nobody knows they are aliens of course) offer a solution - shoot the plague corpses to the moon ... where Temple has figured out the aliens must have come from.

Temple hooks up with an old scientist buddy of his, Farge (Zia Mohyeddin), and the two of them develop a silver helmet which saves Farge from being taken over, glasses to detect the taken over humans, and a weapon to drive the aliens out of humans. Then they kidnap Lee, turn her normal again, and finally infiltrate the aliens' base on earth to sneak onto a lunar rocketship. On moon, they meet the aliens' master (Michael Gough), who tells them they are actually a peaceful race, but are all mental energy, so to get anything done they had to take over humans. And they used the plague victims (who were not really sick much less dead at all) as labour on the moon where they only try to fix their rocketship to continue their journey through space. Temple, Farge and Lee make the labourers/slaves, the plague victims rebel, corner the aliens' master and his elite, but once they have given up, Temple promises to help them repair their spaceship in the name of humankind ...


An at best so-so science fiction film of the alien invasion variety, and definitely one of the lesser flicks produced by horror studio Amicus, whose forte science fiction never was. Somehow, the film just lacks on too many levels to really convince: The pacing is definitely off, the action and suspense scenes become repetitive before too long, the sets are not only cheap (which I can forgive) but also unimaginative, and too many plot elements and characters just pop into the story and disappear again without any rhyme or reason. In all, the film might not be a total disaster, there's a certain rural British charm to it, but it's definitely nothing to write home about.
