The Falling is an exciting and entertaining '80s sci-fi thriller. The story centers around three teenagers traveling through Spain on their way to Madrid. Along the way they find themselves held over in the small village of Duarte. As they interact with some of the townspeople they begin to notice certain people exhibiting very strange behavior. Not soon after they realize something strange within the small town, they meet Dr. W. Tracer (Luis Prendes), a NASA scientist. The doctor explains that the town was the site of a crash involving the Skylab space station during the Apollo 14 shuttle mission. The strange behavior of the townspeople is linked to an alien sub-species that survived the crash and is taking over human hosts, turning them into flesh-eating monsters. Dr. W. Tracer and the teens have to race against time to find and secure the anecdote before the alien species destroys the planet.
