Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956)

Continuing our 1st Annual 50’s Sci-Fi Summer Trailerganza with one of my favorites. When people think of “flying saucer” movies and the way a flying saucer is supposed to look, this is the movie they think of.

The special effects are by Ray Harryhausen. I love the way the aliens look and the weird hazy force field that surround them and the ship. I was going to say that it’s a movie ripe for a remake but in reality we’ve probably sort-of seen remakes of this film many times over the years (and Mars Attacks is pretty much a satire of EVTFS).

You can get the Blu-ray here.
