A group of meteors from the moon fall in an English farmer's field. A team is sent to investigate and they are taken over by an alien presence that is contained in the rocks. Every time someone goes to investigate they are possessed by the aliens. That is, everyone except the hero, Curtis Temple (Robert Hutton), a fifties, overweight business suite type guy who has a metal plate in his head from an auto-accident.He discovers that the aliens are building rockets and sending them to the moon, loaded with humans who have supposedly died of a deadly virus. In truth, the virus doesn't kill them, just puts them in a coma until they arrive at their destination. On the moon they are possessed by the aliens and set to work.Temple meets the leader of the aliens, the Master of the Moon (Michael Gough of KONGA, BATMAN), who explains that they are the most advanced creatures in the Universe. They are possessing the bodies of humans in order to make a rocket that will take them back to their home planet, where they can die.Temple explains that they didn't have to invade like they did, that mankind would have helped them if they simply asked for the help. The alien leader obviously believes this-and as a sign of trust releases the body he possesses. This ending is so abrupt-and ludicrous-that I actually went 'huh?'. Directed by Freddie Francis.
