Storyline

While mainland Britain shivers in deepest winter, the northern island of Fara bakes in the nineties. The boys at the Met station have no more idea what is going on than the regulars at the Swan. Only a stand-offish visting scientist suspects aliens are to blame. Meanwhile the new secretary to the local best-selling author is raising the temperature in her own way. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Trivia

According to Christopher Lee, this film dealing with an uncommon heat wave was actually shot in the middle of winter. The actors not only had to be covered with glycerin to create the illusion of heavy sweat, but also suffered from wearing very light clothes in a freezing season. See more »

Goofs

The islanders in the pub turn off all the lights so as not to attract the aliens. In the next scene the lights are on. See more »

The acting in this is pretty good, and the characters seem to have a great deal of depth (cf Peter Cushing's role.). It's a pity that the British film industry gave up on a cult and, in my opinion, enjoyable series of horror flicks. "Island Of Terror" being another example of this genre...
