The Original Invasion!
Laden with Academy Award winning special effects, this chilling adaptation of H.G. Wells' frightening novel detailing a Martian invasion delivers fiery thrills, laser-hot action and unrelenting, edge-of-your-seat suspense. Gene Barry (TV's Bat Masterson) and Ann Robinson (TV's Fury) are among the humans intrigued when a meteor-like object crashes to Earth...but its occupants are definitely not friendly. The assault on Earth is underway, and the Martian machines-hovering "swan"-shaped vehicles of destruction-are both beautiful and terrifying as they cut a relentless path of annihilation. Produced by George Pal (When Worlds Collide) and directed by Byron Haskin (Treasure Island), The War Of The Worlds is widely regarded as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time and received three Oscar nominations.
