They Came From Beyond Space pop art print
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, it’s claimed that there were no funds left for the film 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”.
Both “They Came from Beyond Space” and “The Terrornauts” were produced by Amicus founders Max Rosenberg and Milton Suboksy, who also co-produced “The City of the Dead” with Christopher Lee, and “It’s Trad, Dad!”, released in America as “Ring-a-Ding Rhythm”, with Helen Shapiro, “Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.” with Bernard Cribbins, the Seth Holt film “Danger Route” with Diana Dors, Roy Ward Baker’s “And Now the Screaming Starts!” with Stephanie Beacham & Herbert Lom, and “At the Earth’s Core” with Caroline Munro.
