I'm not talking about the crappy "Look at me, it's Tom Cruise" remake, but rather the original and still the best 1953 version of War of the Worlds!
For those who have never seen the original, you will be quite surprised at just how far off the mark the remake was compaired to the original...way off!
This is a classic "Martians invade Earth" movie, based on the 1898 (no, that's not a typo) novel by H.G. Wells.
The radio broadcast on October 30th, 1938 was delivered so artistically by Orson Wells that there was a mass hysteria on the east coast by the listeners of this chilling radio program.
The movie, although not as gripping as the radio broadcast, is still a great piece of SciFi/horror that will keep you glued to your seat from start to finish. The FX for the time were quite good, and the storyline one that has lasted 108 years.
