it is actually shot from the same 1957 script and follows that script

INVASION OF THE SAUCER-MEN (1957)
director: Edward L Cahn
starring: Steven Terrell · Gloria Castillo · Frank Gorshin · Ray Hatton
· Lyn Osborn
film is the original source for Larry Buchanan's Eye Creatures.
In Great Britain, it was released as Invasion of the Hell Creatures
(see ad below) and - quite surprisingly - rated as X [for adults]. The
movie is based on a SciFI short story called Cosmic Frame
by Paul W. Fairman.
The plot deals with a flying saucer landing in the woods near a teenager
lover's lane hangout. One young couple, Johnny and Joan, are driving
to the 'make-out' point with their headlights off [so they don't attract
the attention of a local farmer] when they accidentally run down one
of the roaming aliens.
