One of Italian cinematographer-horror director Bava's best. Sullivan, the captain of a spaceship, sees his companion ship vanish, then finds that his own ship is being pulled toward the mysterious planet Aura. Once landed on Aura, Sullivan and crew find the wreckage of the other ship and

discover that the crew members have killed each other. The ship's scientist surmises that the planet is populated with disembodied beings who willed the ships to land and seek to inhabit the bodies. He is proved correct when the dead soon rise. Then, one by one, Sullivan's surviving crew is

killed. Sullivan eventually learns that the beings plan to leave their planet in search of greener pastures on Earth. Sullivan is able to outwit the creatures and escape the planet but suspects that a few of his crew members may be zombies. This is wonderfully directed by Bava with a fluid visual

style that makes the most out of the obviously cheap, fog-filled sets.
