They Came from Beyond Space

They Came from Beyond Space is a 1967 British alien invasion film. I like the James Stevens music.

We're from Beyond Space, and we're here to help. What's beyond space, I wonder? Turns out they're from a star system known to the British, so they came from space, all right, apparently to talk us to death in the last 15 minutes of the movie. You can just skip ahead to there and get the summation, but it'd be a shame to miss the music.

Watch it at the Internet Archive or compliments of googlevideo:

1000 Misspent Hours calls it "undeniably a slight movie". DVDTalk opens their review with this plea: "And they should stay from beyond space (wherever that is) so as not to annoy us with their whining requests and horrible noises." MillionMonkeyTheater says,
A clear rip-off of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, this film's flavor is fairly common of cheaply made sci-fi in the 1960s. It's not the best movie by any account, more of a made-for-television quality show with some low-rent actors and as little costly special effects as possible. I kind of liked it, and the music was fab!
