...a lovely restoration of a very eccentric yet memorable sci-fi programmer...

March 8, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With a wooden script, basic characters, and very kitschy costumes towards the end, They Came from Beyond Space, is a letdown from the start.

March 5, 2021 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Any film in which character actor Michael Gough receives billing as "Master of the Moon" should at least be good for a soupçon of entertainment, but this is too dull and derivative to stir much interest in any direction.

June 7, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

An enjoyable campy bad film.

Audience Reviews for They Came from Beyond Space

With an ahead-of-its-time idea (the ominous aliens arrive but have no bodies and therefore have to occupy ours) this Brit production is not bad at all, following one scientist's efforts to stop the invaders who seem unstoppable. Yeah, its cheesy, but not as throwaway as some have suggested. I rate it a 65.

An entertaining but ultimately very poorly executed drama sci-fi click, drawing obvious influences from the 50s classics. Worth a shot for it's cheesiness, horrid acting, huge plot holes and entertainment value.

Not a half bad british sci-fi import from the late 60s..a bit cheesy and rife with gaping plot holes. Despite its shortcomings, it holds your interest and is ok entertainment.
