Starts out slow, becomes increasingly wrong-headed as it goes on
This is the kind of science fiction movie that Monty Python made fun of in that episode with the tennis-playing Scotsmen and the killer blancmange. John Saxon, who is too American to participate, literally disappears from the story about an hour in. I don't want to give away any plot twists but it really feels like they were making it up as they went along - when the alien's evil plan becomes clear you'll laugh your head off. Science Fiction by people who don't like science fiction.
Having said that, the acting is pretty good if you have a long attention span and you like bad movies, this can be very entertaining. Think of it as a Quatermass movie without a central character.
