First Man into Space (1959)

In the film the First Man into Space, Lieut Dan Prescott; test pilot, is flying his experimental rocket plane Y-13 and becomes the first man to fly outside the ionosphere.  Unable to turn the craft back round, Prescott ejects and is covered with metallic meteor dust.
When the craft returns to Earth, there is no trace of its pilot but soon after, first cattle, then people are found with their throats cut by something that seems to have a craving for blood.  Our errant spaceman has become transformed into something monstrous.
Sounds perfectly entertaining to me.
