“Invaders From Mars” Movie Poster
Original Invaders From Mars (1953) movie poster. Plot: One night, young David McLean sees a spaceship crash into a nearby sandpit. His father, George, goes to investigate, but comes back changed with a strange mark on his neck. Where once he was cheerful and affectionate, he’s now sullen and snarlingly rude. Others fall into the sandpit and begin acting like him: cold, ill-tempered and conspiratorial. David knows that aliens are taking over the bodies of humans, but he’ll soon discover there have been far more of these terrible thefts than he could have imagined. The young doom-monger seeks some protection from a pretty doctor, Dr. Pat Blake, and a brilliant astronomer, Dr. Stuart Kelston, and together they try to convince the other people in the town of what is happening. Soon they meet the aliens: green creatures with insect-like eyes. These beings prove to be slaves to their leader: a large, silent head with ceaselessly shifting eyes and two tentacles on either side, each of which branches off into three smaller tentacles. It’s up to the redoubtable earth trio to stop its evil plans.
