The second "Everyone's been taken over, why won't anyone believe me" movies and oddly sandwiching This Side of Paradise episode of Star Trek, which had a similar theme. Here astronomer and girlfriend DO believe little David, and make wild speculations where the saucers are from or what they want. Apparently, they are from Mars and want to take over Earth because they screwed up their planet. Yea, lets go with that.
not. Either way, it was a strange movie. The HEAD Martian has giant green trolls (see above) under his control in addition to various surgically altered parents.
How does McCarthyism and the Red Scare play into this movie's theme and appeal? What do I look like, a film historian? I'll give it my glad-I-saw-it rating and leave it at that.
"Please God, let them find Mom and Dad before something bad happens. I don't want them to die too."
