The Day it Came to Earth (1976)


A Harry Thomason film shot on location in Arkansas.  Amazon describes the movie plot this way:

"A zombie activated by forces from another world embarks on a grisly killing spree in this wonderful regional romp from the last great days of the drive-in. Not much is happening on a typical Saturday night in Little Rock, apart from college campus panty raids and cuties in scanties heating up the hormones of local frat cats on the prowl. Suddenly a flaming meteor crashes into a nearby swamp and unleashes a lifeform so terrifying it defies description or destruction!"

The movie was filmed in Little Rock.

New York Times



A member of the almost totally unknown cast is actress Rita Wilson, who is now Mrs. Tom Hanks.
