Indescribable . . . Indestructible ! Nothing Can Stop It! 

A small rural Pennsylvania town is beset by a carnivorous, aggressive, amoeba-like alien that crashes to Earth in a meteorite. Teens Steve (Steve McQueen in his first feature film leading role) and Jane (Aneta Corsaut) are early witnesses to its destruction – but will anyone heed their warning before it manages to devour everything in its path? What can possibly stop its destruction? Inspired by a 1950 incident in Philadelphia and filmed on location at the Colonial Theatre.

The Man from Planet X (1951) – United Artists – 70 min.

The Weirdest visitor the Earth has ever seen! 

“As a mysterious planet hurls itself toward Earth, an enigmatic extraterrestrial scout arrives on a remote Scottish island with unknown intentions.” – IMDB

A spaceship lands on a remote Scottish island near the observatory of a professor (Raymond Bond) waiting for the mysterious Planet X to pass near Earth. The professor and his friend, an American reporter, discover the craft’s occupant. They attempt to communicate with the distressed alien scout to uncover its intentions.
