It's a black-and-white film. There's a group of scientists/astronauts/technicians wearing hazmat/space suits. They're in some sort of lab or factory doing research or fixing something. They take turns looking into some hole. One after another, each person turns into a faceless zombie-like version of himself with electricity sparking inside their helmets like a plasma orb.

I remember watching this one many years ago. I did some research online and concluded that is not a Twilight Zone episode. I would like to know what movie/show this is.


Episode of The Outer Limits entitled "Production and Decay of Strange Particles".

Researchers wearing hazmat suits perform experiments in nuclear physics. They inadvertently create a nuclear life form. It invades the hazmat suits, filling them with lightning and enslaving the researchers.

Episode is apparently loosely based on Edmond Hamilton's short story Transuranic.

  • I actually saw that episode (in re-run) and had read the Edmond Hamilton story. Because I am getting up in years. – Winchell Chung May 24 '16 at 13:17
