A friendly visitor from outer space warns against conducting experiments with the Earth’s magnetic field, which could mutate insects into giant monsters. —Directorgene

Huge insects from Planet X invade Earth after a scientist (Forrest Tucker) blows a hole in the ozone layer.

Synopsis: Spoilers?
The movie opens in a laboratory in Britain with narration, “Since the world began, even inventive man has constantly pushed forward into the unknown. One by one the frontiers of science have fallen before him: the science of speed, travel, radio. Now he stands on the threshold of a new age. A terrifying age.” Titles and credits are shown over a starfield background.

Gil Graham (Forrest Tucker) is assisting Dr. Laird (Alec Mango) with an experiment. They fire up their machine. The computer operator, Singers (uncredited) gets too close to a piece of electrical equipment and is electrocuted, but later we are told he was not killed. Brigadier Cartwright (Wyndham Goldie) pays a visit to the Deputy Controller, Gerald Wilson (Geoffrey Chater), regarding Dr. Laird’s experiments. Cartwright wants the project terminated, but Wilson argues that the project is pure research and may have military potential. The project involves strong magnetic fields and has shown some results with metallic alloys. Wilson hands Cartwright two pieces of metal, new aircraft alloys, and tells him to take them to Dr. Laird. Dr. Laird escorts Cartwright into the lab and introduces his Canadian colleague, Gil Graham. Cartwright tells Laird his new computer operator, a replacement for Singers, is a woman. This both surprises and annoys Dr. Laird and Gil. Laird shows Cartwright two pieces of metal, both copper, but one has the characteristics of spring steel.

Plot: Spoilers?
In the south of England, at an isolated laboratory near a small village, physicist Dr. Laird (Alec Mango) is assisted by American scientist Gilbert Graham (Forrest Tucker). They are performing a series of advanced and dangerous experiments with magnetic fields while using massive amounts of power in equipment never designed to carry such loads. An accident occurs and injures another assistant, after which a request for a replacement sent to the Ministry of Defence brings Brigadier Cartwright (Windham Goldie) down to investigate. He is accompanied by a woman computer expert, Michele Dupont (Gaby Andre), who helps to solve Laird’s power problem, but not the larger risks inherent in his experiments.

Cartwright is impressed when an interrupted experiment transforms several pieces of steel, not in the test chamber, into useless lumps of powder. His report convinces the Deputy Defence Minister (Geoffrey Chater) to make Laird’s project a top priority. He sends down a full security team, led by counter-espionage expert Jimmy Murray (Hugh Latimer). It soon becomes clear, however, that enemy agents are the least of the dangers around Laird’s project: The hyper-magnetic fields that he has generated have been affecting the ionosphere, causing unnatural weather patterns, threatening ships at sea hundreds of miles away, and also weakening the magnetic shield that protects the surface of the Earth from cosmic rays. A sudden burst of cosmic radiation from deep space causes brain damage in one local man, turning him into a homicidal maniac, while also causing the insect life to mutate in the area around the village and laboratory.
