War of The Worlds
Laden with Academy Award winning special effects, this chilling adaptation of H.G. Wells' frightening novel detailing a Martian invasion delivers fiery thrills, laser-hot action and unrelenting, edge-of-your-seat suspense. Gene Barry (TV's Bat Masterson) and Ann Robinson (TV's Fury) are among the humans intrigued when a meteor-like object crashes to Earth...but its occupants are definitely not friendly. The assault on Earth is underway, and the Martian machines-hovering "swan"-shaped vehicles of destruction-are both beautiful and terrifying as they cut a relentless path of annihilation.
When Worlds Collide
When scientists discover a distant planet is on a catastrophic collision course with Earth, the government refuses to believe the evidence. It's now up to private citizens to finance and build a spaceship to carry a limited number of people and animals to another planet and begin a new civilization. Massive tidal waves, earthquakes, the impending destruction of our world and deciding who gets to live and die brings out the best and the worst in people. This human emotional drama produced by George Pal (The War of the Worlds, combined with Academy Award-winning special effects, make When Worlds Collide one of science-fiction's pioneering classics.
