Missile To The Moon isn’t it. Very similar but more than one person burns up and not just at the end

    Are you sure it isn't Cat-Women of the Moon? Missile To The Moon is apparently a remake of that movie. Both feature people stepping into the sunlight (on the Moon) and being incinerated. – Jack B Nimble May 2 '18 at 14:38

    Hello and welcome to SFF! There really isn't much content to be able to identify your story here. Could you take a look at this guide and edit in any more details? Also don't forget to take the tour and it is probably worth reading How to Ask. – TheLethalCarrot May 2 '18 at 14:39
  • Without more into, it is difficult to say, but it could be "When Worlds Collide" (1951). In it, the entire Earth becomes incinerated by a wandering star, but a handful of people escape to a planet orbiting this star. – Klaus Æ. Mogensen May 2 '18 at 14:55
  • There's a 1961 movie called "The Day The Earth Caught Fire" where the with a similar plot. Mandatory viewing for sci-fi fans IMO. :-) Done from the point of view of a newspaper reporter. – StephenG May 2 '18 at 23:13

Based on the very limited information, it could be The Mole People (best viewed as a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode). The underground folk in the film have no pigment and are sunburned to death by direct sunlight. Per Wikipedia:

Archaeologists Dr. Roger Bentley and Dr. Jud Bellamin find a race of Sumerian albinos living deep under the Earth.... The Sumerian albinos' ancestors relocated into the subterranean after cataclysmic floods in ancient Mesopotamia. They believe the men are messengers of Ishtar, their goddess. Whenever their population increases, they sacrifice old people to the Eye of Ishtar. These people have lived underground for so long that they are weakened by bright light which the archaeologists brought in the form of a flashlight. However, there is one girl named Adad who has natural Caucasian skin who is disdained by the others since she has the "mark of darkness."

When one of the archaeologists is killed by a mole person, Elinu, the High Priest, realizes they are not gods. He orders their capture and takes the flashlight to control the Mole People, not knowing it is depleted. The archaeologists are then sent to the Eye of Ishtar just as the Mole People rebel. Adad goes to the Eye only to realize it is really natural light coming from the surface and that the men had survived. They then climb to the surface. Unfortunately, Adad dies after reaching the surface, when an earthquake causes a column to fall over and crush her.

  • The Mole People isn’t it. If you know Missile To The Moon I’m essentially looking for the same movie but more people throughout the movie get incinerated by the sun. In Missile To The Moon only one guy gets it at the end – Joe May 2 '18 at 16:20
