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.

Okay, so the monsters look like badly fried eggs, and the scientific explanation of their arrival is pretty laughable, but still, you just can't beat the rural-island-in-peril formula! 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...
