Robert Hutton was interested in science fiction and appeared in a few films with that theme. He lived in the UK for several years at least and appeared in a number of ITC series. He was a dependable lead/ guest star and after he left the UK and returned to the USA he seems to have made no more films. He had a sad end after a fall left him with a broken back and paralysed.
Good value and I hope Studiocanal continue with their release schedule.
Let me take you back to the glory days of yester-year, back before weightlessness in space was even invented, when all you needed for a spaceship control room was some dials, a machine that goes ping, and miscellaneous whatsits, and where proto-MacGyvers could reverse engineer super-advanced alien technology in a matter of hours. Into this halcyon world a meteorite falls - actually several meteorites. No big deal, right? Well, what if I told you that they all fell close together in an obvious formation? Interested now?Read more ›
As for the plot, well, aliens arrive in a meteor shower at night, take over the bodies of humans and start a plague.
They also sends rocket ships to the moon, its like a Jon Pewtrwee Dr Who crossed with the Avengers and UFO, all gone a bit wrong, but great fun still the same.
If you like old films from that era like The Body Stealers and Night of the big Heat then this dvd is for you.

Good quality video transfer and a good story; keep in mind the era.
For me the only thing that let it down, for me, was the incidental music which didn't seem 'right'. Read more
