Ed Nelson stars in this film about alien parasites invading the earth.
The story takes place in the small town of Riverdale, Illinois. A mysterious cone shaped object is discovered and it happens to coincide with the disappearance of several people.
Scientists and the government try to find out what the cone really is. While they are investigating several people in town start acting rather strangely.
Soon it's discovered that small parasites have attached themselves to the necks of these people and are attempting to take over. It is also discovered that the aliens are from inside the Earth, not outer space.
Actor Bruno Ve Sota directed this nifty little film based on Robert Heinlein's novel "The Puppet Masters". It is extremely low budget but fun none the less.
The rest of the cast includes Joanna Lee, Alan Frost, Jack Hill and Jody Fair. Look for Leonard Nimoy in a small role as the leader of the parasites. The film runs an hour and never has time to slow down.
This is another in a long line of AIP films that will probably never see the light of day on DVD or Blu-ray. A rare film that I feel is well worth checking out.
