Great title and intriguing premise undone by sluggishness, a nonexistant budget (though that didn't stop Romero four years later) and possible career-worst performances from Thorley Walters and Dennis Price (who should really have exchanged roles). A sad disappointment from your man Fisher. And earth dies screaming in my hand.
Terence Fisher is the uncrowned king of cinema, most known for his Hammer horror productions. This is a neat little sci-fi flick, set to the british countryside. Fisher creates a great sense of isolation, that gives it an eerie atmosphere. Great black & white photography by Arthur Lavis.
