Storyline

Bennu is an alien from another world who is discovered buried in a Peruvian sarcophagus. He is brought back to life with only vague memories of some sort of mission he was to perform on Earth on behalf of his home planet. Unfortunately, the American and Peruvian governments wish to capture and study Bennu, so he escapes in order to discover the meaning of his journey to Earth. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Good Show...Bad Description
3 March 2007 | by travllerSee all my reviews

Vanguard from an alien civilization who was scouting potential colonization sites for his dying planet, Bennu (Judson Scott) landed on Earth 1500 years ago in the pre-Inca days and was entombed in the Andes Mountains. When 20th century scientists revived him, he went in search of a fellow space traveler, Mira who likewise had been entombed. His only weapon on this planet was an amulet with the image of a Phoenix encased in a triangle. When he concentrated on the amulet, it produced amazing powers of life and death. Government agents lead by Preminger (Richard Lynch) hoped to capture Bennu's amulet for their own use. Bennu of the Golden Light was the featured alien on the short-lived sci-fi series THE PHOENIX/ABC/1982 which originally aired as a made for TV movie on April 26, 1981. -tvacres.com
