It Came from Outer Space 1953 PG

81 mins USA

One of the key UFO films of the '50s gets underway when a large alien spacecraft crash lands in the Arizona desert. Although quickly covered by a rock fall, a glittery trail from the ship reveals that the aliens are out and about, and they soon begin to take over the local populace. But to what end, and are they friend or foe? An absorbing tale from the mind of ace sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury.
