Product Description

Doomwatch star Simon Oates takes the lead role in this cult '60s sci-fi gem, adapted from visionary author Murray Leinster s novel The Wailing Asteroid by fellow Hugo-Award winner John Brunner. Also starring Bond girl Zena Marshall and featuring typically comedic turns from Patricia Hayes and Charles Hawtrey, The Terrornauts is presented here in brand-new transfers from the original film elements of both its initial theatrical and subsequent, shortened versions.

Joe Burke heads a radio telescope project at a British observatory, hoping to pick up signs of life from another planet; thus far, the team has reported no positive results. But just when the project is about to be cancelled, Burke discovers a faint signal the same mysterious signal that intrigued and haunted him as a child and decides to respond...

5.0 out of 5 stars Old? Corny? Nice!!! 31 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the old Sci-Fi films of the 50s and 60s and this one fitted the bill for me. Back then of course, the effects weren't all that brilliant, but gloss over them and watch an entertaining film. The DVD cover might hint at more than what the film has to offer, but still I would recommend the film and look forward to further releases of 'forgotten' films being commissioned/brought to DVD by Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daft but good 23 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well no, you can't take a film all that seriously when the climax involves the heroes (and heroine) putting on rubber bathing caps with wires attached. But the story moves along, it's got a fine cast, and the alien ship has some genuinely bizarre pieces of design. And Network have gone to the trouble of finding the film in its original version, about fifteen minutes longer than the later version used for re-release and TV showings. The original cut is presented as an extra and was obviously mastered from a damaged print, but it's quite watchable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A British Sci-Fi classic 28 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although the original full length version shows signs of wear, particularly at the beginning, this British Sci-Fi classic is well worth watching. A must for all fans of the genre.
