Description by

At Space Operations, Florida Division, the new is bad: their moon shot is a failure and the ship, with a deranged and disfigured astronaut, Captain Lockhart, has to be destroyed on re-entry. Operations suspect an alien life form, which somehow made its way onto the ship, is to blame. Meanwhile, a continent away, in Palms, California, young lovers Paul and Marta's day at the beach is a wash when they encounter a horribly mutilated body on the shoreline. Paul, a medical student, takes the body, but an undetected, detached hand, still very much alive, plays havoc as it stalks and strangles one victim after another. The police are baffled by their only clue - fingerprints which belong to one Captain Lockhart, the astronaut reportedly lost in space.

Product Description:

After an astronaut is blown to smithereens in outer space his arm washes ashore on a California beach. Hitching a ride in a pre-med student's car, it's soon strangling all his visitors.

corn-o-rama Movie Lover: from Media, PA US -- July, 17, 2006

This is one of those movies that was probably created for double-feature filler or music promo. Basic synopsis: an astronaut loses control of his hands after exposure to stellar radiation, and in his last message is fighting of psychopathic urges (with some real grit in his acting too) and crashes to his death. A young boy finds his severed arm on a beach and (why not?) decides to take it home and put it in his refrigerator. Needless to say, this arm is still animated by the malign alien force and creeps off to strangle his large drunken landlady and then infect him with a black-eyed killer space contagion. There are a few truly bizzare events in this film, such as the old man running a store tottering around and informing patrons that there is "No dancing, not allowed", and the hand contanimating our hero by giving him a wet willy with his own saliva.
