Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s UAPs!
With the ongoing investigation into non-human biologics and unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) stalled out in Congress for now, we’re taking matters into our own hands. And investigating some of our favorite invaders throughout October.
Featuring menacing, hilarious and otherwise otherworldly extraterrestrials, our INVASION! series explores a genre which has long been a cipher for America’s post-atomic age anxieties. Government cover-ups, Commies, military overreach! — and other deep and real concerns haunt these spine-tingling tales of beings from the beyond — stopping by our fair planet to wreak havoc, or warn us that we’re really messing up things down here.
We kick things off with a role-reversed invasion film in Ridley Scott’s ALIEN, but quickly get back on track to revisit a film which the ravages of time may have neuralyzed from your memory — aka MEN IN BLACK. Then on to the new 4K restoration of one of the greatest of the many great The Body Snatchers adaptations — as well as animated aliens, muppet aliens, rock aliens, hunter aliens, difficult-to-understand aliens, 3D aliens, and your stereotypical, run-of-the-mill little green men aliens. Then we wrap it all up with a whizzbang double of the pulp-perfect MARS ATTACKS! and the end-all-be-all of extraterrestrial disaster-pieces, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE!
The long and short of it? The truth is out there — and we’ve got a veritable saucerful of sinister visitors to keep your October spectacularly spooky.
