Trivia

Writer Robert Holmes later reused elements of this story in the first Jon Pertwee Doctor Who (1963) story, Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space: Episode 1 (1970). Like this film, it was initially set in a remote English cottage hospital complete with a mysterious and unconscious alien stranger, puzzled doctors, an army patrol, and lurking alien forces in the nearby woods.

Understated British Sci-Fi
1 October 1999 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of a cycle of low-key British Sci-Fi movies of the early to mid 1960s (see also UNEARTHLY STRANGER, NIGHT CALLER FROM OUTER SPACE and NIGHT OF THE EAGLE for other examples) which are technically unspectacular, but which establish and maintain an effectively eerie atmosphere. Its setting is a remote hospital under siege by humanoid aliens whose motives are initially unknown. The morning after I first saw it (on TV in the middle of the night), I thought I had dreamt it. An unheralded gem.
