Storyline

Edit
Plot Summary

A ship pulls into New York Harbor with no one on board. The police find a cargo full of green pulsating eggs. Upon contact, the eggs explode spreading a green acid like substance that seeps into the skin and explodes. It is later discovered that the eggs are being manufactured in South America by a one-eyed Martian that grew from a tiny seed a former astronaut brought back from a expedition to Mars. Written by Humberto Amador

Trivia According to director Luigi Cozzi, the alien cyclops shown towards the end was supposed to be much more animated, but this was not shown due to problems with the mechanics. See more »
Goofs When Commander Hubbard is telling Colonel Holmes about the expedition to Mars he claims the eggs were green just as the one in the photograph she showed him. But the photographs she has shown him were in black and white so he couldn't possibly know if they were green as well. See more »
