It Came from Outer Space

A spaceship from another world crashes in the Arizona desert that makes an amateur stargazer and a schoolteacher suspect alien influence when the local townsfolk begin to act strange.

“It Came from Outer Spaceis a crucial gatefold film . . .
It was the first screenplay produced by Ray Bradbury, although Bradbury only turned in a treatment and the finished result was rewritten by Harry Essex.” —Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy Film Review
