Invaders from Mars

Synopsis: One night, young David McLean sees a spaceship crash into a nearby sandpit. His father goes to investigate, but comes back changed. 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 finds some serious help in a lady doctor and a brilliant astronomer. 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.

The Invaders from Mars

Heaven, once subject

superstitions and fears


becoming better known.

The distance of Venus,

Mars' atmosphere,

the size of Jupiter

and the speed of Mercury,

we know them.

But Heaven has kept his secret.

What life, if there is one,

exists on these other planets?

Y does it like us humans?

Inferior beings?

Dangerously or higher?

Continually seek

the answer to this question,

Such is the concern


Of famous scientists

or unknown ...

Scholars from major universities

or to smaller,

Scholars ...

of all ages.

What are you doing, honey?

Nothing, Mary.

I'll make the coffee.

It is 4 am.

4 hours! The alarm clock rang.

You dreamed.

It is about 7:

as usual.

It's that rascal ...

David ...

I did not want to wake you up.

You saw earlier?

Orion is at its zenith.

It will not happen in six years.

Let me see.

It's not worth it?

It's true we see the well.

We always see Rigel,

but locate the great nebula ...

While the two in bed!

I told him that ...

I've already learned for a husband,

my son should follow in his footsteps?

Come on, David, in bed.

- A few more minutes.

- No, it's much too early.

And will not move forward

to hear your mother in the kitchen.

No, your father. I earlier

I wake up, before I sleep.

Good night, David.

Good night, Mom.

Good night, Dad.

You sleep, huh?


Good night, my son.

- Dad!

- What was there, son?

One trick landed in the sandpit.

Something bright!

- Huh?

- I'll show you!

You had to stay in bed?

I was sleeping. It woke me up.

A light that illuminated everything!

It landed right there!

You dreamed! If it was a meteor,

everyone would be awake.

But it did not fall!

It has landed!

- A spaceship?

- How big?

- As big as ...

- A plane?


I do not see anything outside.

Not anymore. But ...

Go back to bed, my boy.

All that is in your imagination.

- I saw it!

- How was it?

Difficult to specify.

A light that has weakened.

Then a buzz.

Tomorrow, wake up, if there are

a saucer, it will notify

General Mayberry.

- But ...

- Tomorrow!


Be reasonable.

Good night.

- What's going on?

- Go back to sleep.

- David calmed down?

- Yes! Sorry to have woken up.

- Why do you rise?

- Nothing. I come back.

George! What's going on?

David said he saw

something in the landing field.

This is absurd,

but he seemed sure of himself?


He said he saw

bright light and ...

Imagine, this is not his style.

My job is top secret,

I must report any discrepancies.

- It puts the sounds ...

- Sounds?

But I can not tell you.

I'd better go see.



Where is your son now?

He sleeps.

I did not wake up.

Your husband has put his slippers,

he came out and it disappeared?

Go see if you find it!

Your husband has never disappeared


But no!

You know,

scholars are so distracted ...

My husband is an engineer.

It's not a wacky!

Instead go see ...

We must know all the facts.

Our report was to be done.

Come on, Blaine.

There's one, for sure.

Flying saucers!

And then what?

Let's go.

He is not here.


I'd love a coffee.

- George MacLean!

- It's been there.

Take the north,

I take this side.

Farewell coffee.

- Did you sleep well, darling?

- Yes. What time is it?

Almost eight hours.

- Where is Daddy?

- He left early.

- He promised me ...

- Enough. Your mother is tired ...

We'll drink coffee?

Are you there?

I was worried!

He was not at the factory?


- Where were you?

- I went to see Bill Wilson.

- In your pajamas?

- In pajamas, actually.

- But ...
