Scientist Dr. Russell Marvin (Hugh Marlowe) and his new bride Carol (Joan Taylor) have an alarmingly close encounter with a flying saucer at the beginning of Fred F. Sears’ classic of the ‘50s alien invasion cycle, a key inspiration to Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks!
Insisting they come in peace, the silver-suited aliens soon launch a surprise attack, announcing they will conquer the earth in less than 60 days. Enlivened by its faux-documentary approach, and terrific stop motion special effects work from the great Ray Harryhausen, Earth Vs the Flying Saucers is a B-movie matinee delight.
