Astronomers investigate a mysterious meteorite shower in a rural English farm field. The rocks which fell, landed in a V-formation. Dr. Richard Arden, preeminent in the field of extraterrestrial study, is not permitted to accompany his colleagues, including his girlfriend Lee Mason, because he is still recovering from the effects of a recent motor accident. The scientists are summarily taken over by some alien force, and others in the area are dying from a mysterious "crimson plague," which covers their bodies with drops of blood. Temple seems the only person immune to both maladies, so if he can discover the reason for this immunity, he may yet foil the alien plan to take earthlings back to the moon for their own sinister purposes.Written by

Dr. Curtis Temple:
Why that's impossible! No propulsion system on Earth could possibly send a rocket to the Moon and back in 24 hours.
The system we employ was not created on Earth.

OffBeat Cinema has a "movie" each week which is, well, offbeat! That's why this gets a "5" rating from me because I watch with tongue in cheek to see how bizarre the stuff they find and show can get. And, actually this wasn't that "offbeat" compared to much of the other stuff.
I'll leave the technical movie stuff to the movie techies. For me, this was pure sci-fi cheese which is exactly the mood I was in sitting at home on a Saturday night. I'm trying to imagine watching it in 1967 terms and it might have been o.k. for a 10 year old at the Saturday Matinée.
If you want to be amused by some unreal sci fi, and you bring your imagination and sense of humor, this is a fun way to pass time. Based on standards of "good sci-fi movies," however, you'll probably want something that had a better (read: BIGGER) budget. Probably not unlike the actors and director in this film did.
