British horror specialists Amicus rarely dipped a toe into SF... Watching this cheesy effort, you can understand why.

Audience Reviews for They Came from Beyond Space


Don't try to interfere with us again or you'll be destroyed. Initially it appears falling rocks from space are plaguing the planet until it become apparent they are being guided by intelligent life beings. A group of scientists build a rocket and form a crew to figure out how to stop the meteors. They are captured and initially think they're part of an experiment...they would be so lucky... "They may have been guided here by creatures. Intelligent creatures." Freddie Francis, director of Dark Tower, The Doctor and the Devils, The Ghoul, Legend of the Werewolf, Son of Dracula, Tales from the Crypt (1972), and Nightmare, delivers They Came from Beyond Space. The storyline for this picture is very average and fairly cliché for the science fiction genre. The acting and special effects were also just okay. "Don't try to interfere with us or you'll be destroyed." I grabbed this off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) since I adore the old school classic science fiction movies. This has a campy, average feel to it with some cool "on the moon" scenes that are entertaining. Overall, this is worth watching only if you're a fan of the genre. "Slaves do not speak without permission in front of the master of the moon." Grade: C

It's premise isn't bad, but the film just wasn't done well. The plot is decent but a bit scrambled. The acting isn't too good, and the film drags on a bit. It has its high points, but still it wasn't as good as it could of been.

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.
