Invaders from Mars--The Facts Behind the Story
This is a 1986 re-make of a SciFi classic about Martians invading the Earth and taking over the bodies of humans. In the 1950's original, a precocious kid tries to warn everyone of the danger as the Martians began to implant mind-control probes in his parents, his teachers and nearly everyone in his small-town community. Eventually, he enlists the aid of the U.S. Army and saves the day.
In the latest version, the sets are more modern and expensive, the Marians are not so cheesy and it's the U.S. Marines to the rescue. Therein lies the tale...and the beginning of the Warriors Inc. legacy in Hollywood.
