The corpses attack and kill anybody that enters the cemetary.
A pilot, Jeff, an Air Force Colonel, Tom, and a detective, John, stumble across one of the ships. They go inside and encounter two aliens, a male and a female.
The aliens explain that re-animating the corpses is their way of proving their existence. They explain how they've been contacting the government for years, but not getting a reply. They've been trying to warn the government about a future weapon that will destroy the universe.
However, Jeff, Tom and John didn't listen any better than the government. Instead, Jeff started fighting with the male alien. Their fighting knocks over some equipment and starts a fire. Jeff knocks the alien out cold.
Jeff, Tom and John flee the ship while the female alien initiates takeoff.
Jeff, Tom and John watch as the flaming ship disappears into the black sky and they wonder if the aliens will ever be back.

    Aliens land on Earth. The aliens resurrect the newly dead and march on world capitals to prove they mean business. However, they are spotted while executing this plan. The U.S. Army, local police, and some intrepid local citizens join forces to help combat this menace of aliens and the undead.

Aliens invade Earth to carry out their ninth plan of conquest, because the other eight failed. The government attempts to stop the invaders. This is pretty much a comedy, for the special effects are atrocious and the acting is abominable.
