Mt Trollenberg, Switzerland. When the arrival of a sinister stationary cloud leads to the deaths of a group of mountaineers, United Nations representative Alan Brooks is sent to investigate. Meeting a journalist and a pair of psychically gifted sisters, the group must join forces to uncover the terrible truths of the cloud and survive the deadly gaze of the horrors within.
Released as The Crawling Eye in America and best known for being the subject of the first episode of 'Mystery Science Theatre 3000', Quentin Lawrence’s film is a treasure of mid-century sci-fi spectacle, featuring adroit cinematography and memorable art design. High-camp, high-schlock, and high-altitude: The Trollenberg Terror has its eye on you!
