Time frame: late 50's mid 60's and possibly from the UK.

A young boy or man witnesses a streak across the sky and it lands nearby in a misty-foggy moor. while investigating the perimeter of the craft, he finds himself in a face to face confrontation with an alien being while looking into a porthole on the craft. This story scared the "you-know-what" out of me when I was an impressionable child.


The Man From Planet X (Wikipedia, IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, Trailers from Hell) is a 1951 Hollywood movie set in Scotland. It's got your alien spacecraft landing in a misty moor, all right. The trailer shows a young woman startled by an alien face looking back at her through a porthole. You can watch the whole movie here.
