     The tranquil life of a lighthouse keeper and his family is disrupted when a flying saucer and its alien inhabitants invade.


Great idea which sadly goes awry due to lousy acting, dialogue and photography. At its worst photographically it looks like 8mm blown up to 35. Many shots completely out of focus and poorly composed for the 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The acting is particularly wooden, the casting poor and the dialogue banal. It's almost a Turkey but just misses the mark, otherwise this could have become a cult film. The idea on the other hand is a good one, and once the banality of the first two reels is over the plot becomes quite engaging. Special effects are surprisingly ingenious for such a low budget film and you can clearly see where John Coats' real talents lie. By no means the worst film I've ever seen and worth a look at if your on the hunt for fresh turkey meat, otherwise dodgy.
