Throughout the mid 60s and early 70s Amicus Productions churned out a series of wonderful little horror anthologies including my favorite, TALES FROM THE CRYPT.But, before launching into the more-profitable horror genre, where low-budgets were more easily forgiven, Amicus produced some full-length features, including THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE.However, the music is overbearing; and, distracting. The acting is good; but, not outstanding. The special effects are okay, some even good. The launch of the moon rocket even looked plausible. And, who dressed these people anyway?Well, that’s the bad; but, the good is the sets are quite striking. The cinematography, as with other Amicus Products, was beautiful. And, I thought the plot moved along nicely.However, the reason for my comment is the number of films and stories that this movie seems to have inspired (based on the book The Gods Hate Kansas, so not sure if it’s the book or this film that’s the inspiration).Some think that Stephen King may have been inspired by this one. My thinking is that perhaps even the new series “V” may have been inspired by this. Especially the creepy comment by the security officer that the work would result in “saving” the planet, or all mankind. And, WHAT do they need all the bodies for — both V and these moon creatures?!? Amicus really defined the horror anthology genre for me. But it is good to see they had a fairly decent feature film before launching those. Next up: THE DEADLY BEES!

They Came from Beyond Space (1967) PLOT STORY
Astronomers investigate a mysterious meteorite shower in a rural English farm field, – exceptional because the space rocks all fell 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.
When a meteor shower crashes in a farm in Cornwall in the countryside of England, a team of scientists travels to the spot investigate the debris. Dr. Curtis Temple is not allowed to go since he is recovering from an accident and has a silver plate implanted in his head. But he recommends his girlfriend Lee Mason to be his substitute for the investigation. However alien forces take over the scientists’ brains and use them as slaves to build a secret facility in the farm. Dr. Temple drives to the rural area and finds that the inhabitants are dying of a lethal plague. Further, he is immune to the alien’s possession and to the plague. Dr. Temple rescues Lee from the aliens and together with a colleague and Lee wearing helmets, they return to the farm and embark in a rocket to the moon. Soon they meet the Master of the Moon and they learn the intention of the aliens.
Aliens crash land on the moon, they try to use scientists from earth as slaves to to help fix their ship. But one of the scientists has a metal plate in his head and he cannot be controlled by the Aliens. Based on the Novel “The Gods Hate Kansas”.
