STUDIO CANAL are set to release a brand-new restoration of the Amicus Productions’ cult 60s sci-fi horror THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE from the legendary director of The Evil Of Frankenstein and Dr Terror’s House Of Horrors, Freddie Francis.
When meteorites crash-land in the perfect formation of the letter V, the Ministry of Extraterrestrial Life on Other Planets (MELOP) led by Dr. Curtis Temple (Hutton) is sent to investigate. The scientists and local bystanders soon find themselves possessed by an alien force which wants to enslave them. No one is immune from the invasion except for Dr. Temple, who is shielded from the meteor’s influence by a metal plate that was inserted to protect his skull after a recent accident. He discovers that an alien race on the moon seeks to use the manipulated scientists for secret purposes. But, as Temple learns more about the invaders, he realises that they may not be as evil as he once thought.
Extras on the release will be –
- Audio commentary with Film Historian David Del Valle and Filmmaker David DeCoteau
- Original UK theatrical trailer
Starring Robert Hutton, Jennifer Jayne, Zia Mohyeddin and Bernard Kay the Blu ray will be available from 8th of March.
