Invaders From Mars

A seminal film in the annals of Science Fiction Cinema, INVADERS FROM MARS has the ability to provoke the frightened child in all of us. A young boy has a nightmare (or does he?) about a flying saucer landing near his back yard after which his parents, the local police and others transform into possessed, soulless saboteurs with tiny control devices implanted in their necks. Despite his horrific feelings of isolation young Jimmy has to find help. Released in 1953 when the United States was still in the Cold War paranoia grip of the McCarthy era and UFO sightings were increasingly on the rise, it was the classic 'don't watch it with the lights turned out' science fiction film and is still considered by many to be the scariest sci-fi movie to come out of the fifties. brilliantly designed and directed by William Cameron Menzies.
