1956 - EARTH VS THE FLYING SAUCERS on BLU RAY


The one man band of special effects movies in the 1950's.  Ray Harryhausen abandoned his fascination with monsters and knocked out this fabulous B movie about the United States Government vs invaders from another planet.


Using every low budget trick in the book like blending stock footage with his flying saucer animations, Harryhausen knocked out this fast moving and unpretentious film that gets the job done in under 90 minutes.


For better or worse special effects have come a long way since the Harryhausen days but modern effects have never been able to bring the amount of inventive and clever staging that Ray Harryhausen brought to his early black and white films.

A real entertaining film from the 1950's.

83 minutes.
