ALIEN INVASION FILMS OF THE 50′S: “Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers” (1956)

Here we are again with another entry in my “Alien Invasion Films of the 50′s” series, this time covering a classic from 1956 called EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS! This is an interesting film in that has a typical 50′s fun feel to it made all the better by the amazing special effects by animation master Ray Harryhausen! This is actually the first time Harryhausen animated something other than a living creature showing how creative and versatile he was.

I have to admit that it’s been a while since I really enjoyed seeing a movie on the big screen. Oh sure, I’ve seen plenty of films that were “okay” and it’s always nice getting out with friends, but there have been few where I felt drawn in to the story or any type of reaction for that matter.

I decided to give it and, must say, I was pleasantly surprised!

FIRE IN THE SKY: 1990′s UFO Abduction Tale Illustrates The Truth is REALLY Out There!

Not long ago, I popped open one of my horror movie binders and fished out an old favorite that I’d forgotten about. Back in 1993, my friend Suzanne gave me a call saying she wanted to go out to see a movie. This meant that, per our usual custom, SHE would pick out what we’d see though I never complained as I was always happy for an opportunity to do something social. Especially, at that time, if it was with someone of the opposite sex. I can honestly say that it never bothered me that 90% of her choices were forgettable nightmares. Of course even a broken grandfather clock is right at least twice a day and, every once in a great while, Suzanne would pick a winner. This was definitely the case on the night she’d chosen us to see FIRE IN THE SKY.
