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.
