"Invaders From Mars" (1953)
Hello, Pulp Friends,
I feel like I have been neglecting this blog a bit, after the "busy" Halloween month in October - I just have a few deadlines I need to take care so I have been focusing on "work" lately ;) As matter of fact I haven't had chance yet to watch the "V" series premiere, even if I DVRed it so maybe this weekend I will fix that.
Meanwhile here's a classic for our Alien November: "Invaders From Mars" (or "Gli Invasori SPaziali" in its italian release), directed in 1953 by William Cameron Menzies and remade later in the 80s.
Quick Synopsis: A kid witnesses a starship landing on Earth and disappearing undergorund. He tries to warn everyone about this but only a doctor believes him.
Shot in 3D, this movie is the proof that you can accomplish a lot with really good ideas, even if the budget is tight.
Paranoid, obsessive, unforgettable.
Happy Pulp Friday, everybody! :)
