New Blu-ray restoration of They Came From Beyond Space

New Blu-ray of They Came From Beyond Space
STUDIOCANAL is releasing a brand-new restoration of the Amicus Productions’ cult 60s sci-fi horror “They Came From Beyond Space” on the 8th of March 2021.

Starring Robert Hutton, Jennifer Jayne, Zia Mohyeddin, Michael Gough, and Bernard Kay, “They Came From Beyond Space” is an enjoyably camp B-movie from the Amicus producers with a British retro treat.

Meteors descend on Earth, specifically Cookham in Berkshire where the majority of the film is shot, and aliens proceed to bodysnatch humans for their own ends.

“They Came from Beyond Space” recycled sets and props from another Amicus production, “Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.”, reportedly to save costs. Released in cinemas as a double-feature with “The Terrornauts“, it’s claimed that there were no funds left for “They Came from Beyond Space” as “The Terrornauts” had gone over budget, which only goes to show how tight the financing was for both science-fiction films.

Directed by Freddie Francis, he also directed “Tales from the Crypt” with Joan Collins & Barbara Murray, and was the Award-winning cinematographer on many films including “Room at the Top” with Laurence Harvey, “Saturday Night & Sunday Morning” with Rachel Roberts, “The Elephant Man”, “Cape Fear”, and “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”.

The film’s director of photography was Norman Warwick who worked on “The Italian Job“, “The Final Programme“, and the Hammer House of Horror TV series.

Both “They Came from Beyond Space” and “The Terrornauts” were produced by Amicus founders Max Rosenberg and Milton Suboksy, adapted from the book ‘The Gods Hate Kansas’ by Joseph Millard.

The soundtrack was by the avantgarde composer James Stevens, who also worked on the score for “Sparrows Can’t Sing“, and the film was edited by Peter Musgrave who started in film as the assistant sound editor on classic Ealing comediesPassport to Pimlico” and “Kind Hearts & Coronets“, and went on to edit productions including Bond films “Never Say Never Again” with Sean Connery & Barbara Carrera, as well as “The Living Daylights” and “Licence to Kill” with Timothy Dalton.

“They Came From Beyond Space” is available to buy on Blu-ray for the first time from the 8th of March 2021, as well as on DVD and digital formats, and includes special extras of an audio commentary with Film Historian David Del Valle and Filmmaker David DeCoteau, and the original UK theatrical trailer.
