Cult Movie Essentials: Visitors from the Galaxy (1981)

He adds that he discovered he has “tellurgia”, an ability to make his thoughts come true; he learned about it when he was a baby wishing for milk, and his father grew breasts in order to feed him.

Robert begins arguing with Biba, who does not believe a thing he says, so in a bid to convince her, Robert takes her to the island the following night and introduces her to the three aliens in their blue glowing spherical spaceship…
