Storyline

Aliens, contacting scientist Adam Penner, inform him that they have been on the moon for twenty thousand years, undetected due to their invisibility, and have now decided to annihilate humanity unless all the nations of earth surrender immediately. Sequestered in an impregnable laboratory trying to find the aliens' weakness, Penner, his daughter, a no-nonsense army major and a squeamish scientist are attacked from outside by the aliens, who have occupied the bodies of the recently deceased. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Trivia

United Artists released this as the top of a double bill with The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (1959). Both films were directed by Edward L. Cahn, and despite each film listing a different production company, Premium Pictures and Vogue Pictures, both were actually produced by the same company. See more »

Goofs

The B-17 bomber crashes into a target laid out in sandbags on the ground. It is stock footage of an Air Force test experiment related to remote-controlled flying bombs. In practice, the plane would have been pilotless and would have been loaded with high explosives. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Adam Penner: Dear Lord, I pray that I am insane, that all that happened is only in my mind. I pray that tomorrow the sun will shine again on living things, not on a world where only the dead walk the Earth.

Bulletin: Aliens take over dead bodies to attend a hockey game.
20 October 2006 | by (Staten Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Spooky little horror film that had tentacles which reached far and wide. Many other filmmakers may have taken a dip in this cinematic pool. Don't snicker. Checkout the walking stiffs in business suits staggering around the countryside. Remind you of anyone? The last survivors--holed up in some sought of army bunker--predict a future bird flick. The clash between scientists, civilians and the military is always a staple of the action genre. There may be others, but I would have to watch it again. I first saw this on Creature Feature back in the 70's. It spooked me out to the degree that I swore off this type of movie until Chiller Theatre came on later that night. I came across it again about a dozen years ago when it turned up on New Year's Eve. Weird. Someone's idea of a joke? Recently, I bought it in tandem with another John Agar film called Journey to the Seventh Planet. John Carradine stumbles around as one of the corpses and does very well. Some of the extensive stock footage defies logic. A plane crashes into a marked bulls-eye on a hillside. It looked like a military training ground. The invaders are defeated with the simplest of weapons. They usually are.
