  • Invaders from Mars

    1953. USA. Directed by William Cameron Menzies. Screenplay by Richard Blake. With Helena Carter, Arthur Franz, Jimmy Hunt. In this 1950s sci-fi classic, aliens suck victims underground and reprogram their brains to do their bidding. Invaders from Mars is remarkable for its portrayal of a child pitted against alien-modified adults, reflecting the conflict between childhood and adulthood—a theme often seen in Burton’s work. 78 min.
