An alien agent from the distant planet Davana is sent to Earth via a high-tech matter transporter. There, he terrorizes Southern California in an attempt to acquire blood for his dying race, the result of a devastating nuclear war.
In Norrisville, Bill Farrell leaves his bachelor party on the eve of his marriage with Marge Bradley. He is abducted by an alien that takes his shape and marries Marge on the next day. Marge feels something strange with Bill and one year later she realizes that he is a totally different man. One day, Marge follows Bill and he goes to the woods; she finds that he is an alien and sees his spacecraft. She tries to tell to Washington and to the FBI, but the aliens have dominated key people in town that do not allow any sort of communication with the exterior world. What is the intention of the alien invasion?Written by

Entertaining as well as bemusing film with dated special effects
The movie talks upon an aircraft from outer space that arrives to earth and go out aliens and they are hanging with human beings . As Aliens from Outer Space are slowly switching places with real humans . One of the first switching is an attractive young (Tom Tryon) about to get wedded to a beautiful girl called Marge (Gloria Talbott). One year marriage later she still feels there are numerous rare things about him , as he doesn't have feelings , nor emotions. A horrified Marge then attempts to warn everyone of the alien threat .
It's a typical B movie of the 50s , it has suspense , thriller , tension and fun . Tom Tryon as the alien husband is fine and Gloria Talbott as his distrustful wife is enjoyable , she usually was in sci-fi films by that time . There appears a very secondary role , Ty Hardin , who along with Tom Tryon were two beefcakes who habitually played movies for youth . In fact , the scene at the beach gave movie audiences their first look at Ty Hardin's bare chest . Special effects , FX , are average , though by that time were quite well ; they are in charge of John P.Fulton , a craftsman with great experience and a long career from the silent cinema . Production design by Henry Bumstead who has worked along with Alfred Hitchcock (Vertigo, Topaz) and today continues , being Clint Eastwood's usual set decorator (Unforgiven , Mystic river) . However , the sets in aircraft interior are ridiculous and embarrassing . The motion picture was regularly directed by Gene Fowler Jr , he was a famous editor and occasionally director of Western as ¨The Oregon Trail¨ and terror as ¨I was a teenage wolf¨ . The flick will appeal to science fiction and fantastic movies fans . Rating : Mediocre but amusing .
