The Glitterball (1977)

Film details


A U.F.O. registers briefly on R.A.F. radar supervised by Sergeant Fielding but disappears before it can be tracked down. The object, a tiny spaceship, crash lands in a toolshed where it discharges the Glitterball, and the trouble begins, for it has a tremendous appetite for human food.
