Larry Cohen on

Invaders From Mars

Released 1953
Distributor 20th Century Fox

His 1935 “Things to Come” is more prestigious, but famed production designer Wm. Cameron Menzies reached his directorial zenith with this deliberately unreal “B” that has creeped out several generations of kids. The great Art Gilmore narrates a classic trailer for a seminal movie. In SuperCineColor! Glenn Erickson of DVD Savant provides a terrific analysis of this indelible 50s classic
