A little boy named David loves astronomy and has a small telescope at home. And then one night he wakes up to a severe thunderstorm and sees through the telescope that a real flying saucer, a spaceship from a distant planet, is landing behind a nearby hill. David’s father, a famous scientist, goes off to see what happened there, only to return in the morning and in some strange state. Instead of a cheerful, loving, caring parent, David gets a sullen and irritable subject who wants only one thing – to take his entire family to that very field where the flying saucer supposedly landed.
The movie ‘Invaders from Mars’ belongs to the category of low-budget sci-fi movies, which in the 50s of the twentieth century in the United States was released in large quantities. Practically nobody knows the actors, ill-understood script, cheap tricks – all that is present in this motion picture to the full extent. And, for example, the scenes with military equipment, which surrounds the ship landing place and shoots at the aliens, seem to be taken from some other film, most likely a documentary or a popular-science film.
However, it is not all that bad. There are positive moments in the movie as well. For example, there is a headstrong Martian with tentacles instead of arms (but only one Martian). There are his servants, ‘synthetic humans’ (mutants), who look like healthy monkeys, especially when they run funny through the underground corridors. There’s the beautiful girl who is brutally grabbed by a horrible mutant and then dragged to the operating table, where the evil Martian wants to put a time bomb in the girl’s brain. And finally, there are the people, the ordinary citizens of a small American town, but with ‘stone’ impenetrable faces who have fallen under the influence of Martian telepathy.
All of this also looks like cinematic stamps at times, but overall the film looks good and well worthy of at least one viewing. And fans of sci-fi from the 30s and 50s should definitely enjoy the film.
