One of several remaining members of its race, an alien from Venus is guided to Earth by disgruntled scientist Tom Anderson, who tells it which humans it should attach mind control devices to. Among them is his old friend, fellow scientist Paul Nelson. Nelson, after killing a flying bat-thing which carries the device, finally persuades the paranoid Anderson that he's been wrong to ally himself with an alien bent on world domination. They hurriedly leave when they discover Tom's wife has picked up a rifle and gone to the alien's cave to try to kill it.

Composer and musician Frank Zappa
made a tribute to "It Conquered the World" in his album, "Roxy & Elsewhere" (1973). In the introduction of the song "Cheepnis", Zappa tells the audience that he loves monster movies. "And the cheaper they are, the better they are". Frank Zappa describes this movie as a perfect example of monster movie with its alien with an "inverted ice-cream cone head with fangs". He describes one special scene when the "monster came out of the cavern" and he could see the technicians pushing the creature over the rail. "This is cheepnis", Mr Zappa concludes before playing the song. See more
