Here's the Mexican lobby card for Invasores De Marte, one of the most frightening, for kids, of all the 1950s science fiction movies. Striking in its simplicity and the skillfully handled budget-art design, who can forget the images of people being swallowed by the sand accompanied by that unearthly sound, or those tall, gawky, fuzzy-clad aliens and their tentacled leader in the glass bowl? And you like ray guns? Well, that's a ray gun! Invaders from Mars is still a film--with its paranoia and mind-control themes even more relevant today--not to be missed.
i do remember that classic scifi gem as being frightening..
(the remake later was frighteningly lame as i recall..) http://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/mindless_art/mindlessart10.html
