INVADERS FROM MARS and KRONOS

INVADERS FROM MARS

(1953, William Cameron Menzies) Nightmare vision of alien invasion seen through the eyes of a small boy – a triumph of low-budget stylized production design by the man who created the look of both Things to Come (see Aug. 28) and Gone With the Wind. Approx. 78 min. 35mm.
1:00, 4:20, 7:40

"Interesting […] for the extremeness of its Cold War aura of military preparedness, which even throws in actuality shots of tanks and troops massing as the earthlings prepare to fight back against the green tentacular midget things that live in glass globes. Its backyard setting, a nostalgic slice of small town Americana which is the territory to be defended, inspired the opening sequence of Scorsese’s Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.”
– Time Out (London)
 
INVADERS FROM MARS and KRONOS

KRONOS

(1957, Kurt Neumann) A giant extra-terrestrial robot rises from the ocean depths, absorbing and storing energy as the first step toward world conquest. “Superb special effects, despite the $160,000 budget.” – Phil Hardy. Approx. 78 min. 35mm.
