The Tryzzian Exiles
Alien outcasts run amok on planet Earth in Roy Spence's sci-fi romp, a film that draws on the lo-fi charm of Ed Wood and Roger Corman.
From the collection of:
The story of three criminals exiled from their home planet for their heinous crimes, who end up causing havoc on earth. The plot of the Tryzzian Exiles would be echoed years later in Superman II. Shot on a somewhat more modest budget, this Roy Spence offering made great use of local landmarks, such as Carrickmannon Lake and Scrabo quarry.
Twin brothers Roy and Noel Spence have been making films like this for over fifty years; with subjects including crafty leprechauns, creatures from outer space, fifties rock 'n' rollers and the undead. You can enjoy many of these fantastical creations on BFI player. This film is courtesy of Roy Spence and is held in the Irish Film Archive.
