INVADERS FROM MARS (1953 U.S.) D: WILLIAM CAMERON MENZIES W: RICHARD BLAKE/JOHN TUCKER BATTLE EXEC P: EDWARD L. ALPERSON
I can kind-of appreciate this dreamlike (thanks to Menzies` sets, and John Seitz`s photography) childhood nightmare sci-fi about a kid (Jimmy Hunt) who thinks aliens have taken over his folks, but still can`t bring myself to like it that much. Most people seem to love it, so judge for yourself. The alien head in a round tank is cool though, controlling his mutant slave men-in-painfully-obvious-monster-suits army. With Arthur Franz, Leif Erickson, Morris Ankrum, Hillary Brooke, Nilburn Stone, Max Wagner, Pter Brocco, Charles Cane, Richard Deacon, John Eldredge, William Forrest, Bert Freed, Douglas Kennedy, William Phipps, Walter Sande, Robert Shayne, Frank Wilcox and former circus giant Ed Wolff. Remade in 1986.
