Product Description:

A new planet is sighted in the sky, and it's spinning very close to the Isle of Berrey, Scotland. Professor Elliot (Raymond Bond) and his lovely daughter, Enid (Margaret Fielding) set up headquarters in a remote castle amid Berrey's foggy moors to see what happens. Reporter John Lawrence (Robert Clarke) heads over for the story; he and Enid discover a spaceship and its one inhabitant while they're walking around in the fog after dinner. At first the little "man" seems to be friendly, but when the Professor's evil assistant (William Schallert) abuses him, the creature vanishes and soon after townspeople start disappearing as well. A level-headed constable (Roy Engel) works with Lawrence in getting some answers, but their communication with the mainland gets cut off, and Planet X starts spinning closer and closer.

Lauded low-budget auteur Edgar G. Ulmer directed with his patented mixture of brilliant camerawork and budgetary restraint. His use of miniature work, fog, and painted backdrops is nothing short of genius; this picture does not look like it was shot in eight days for a budget of under $50,000. It's a low-key sci fi classic with an air of mystery that lingers in the mind long after it's over, and it's treasured by science fiction fans, UFOlogists, and Ulmer scholars.
