They Came From Beyond Space/Fun Facts

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database

< They Came From Beyond Space
  • Released on a double bill with The Terrornauts (1967). Director Freddie Francis claimed that the company had spent all their budget on that film, leaving nothing left for They Came from Beyond Space (1967).
  • To save costs, the production used many sets and props from the Amicus movie Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. (1966) filmed earlier.
  • Allegedly this was Anwar Sadat's favorite movie.
  • In the laboratory where they cast the silver cage stands a big clear plastic (or glass) gun. This is the same prop used as the main device in The Projected Man (1966).
  • Based on the book "The Gods Hate Kansas" by Joseph Millard.
