Drive In Classics! week begins at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing "The Day Mars Invaded Earth," shot in gorgeous black-and-white Cinemascope.
Moody, atmospheric B picture that recalls the Val Lewton formula of getting the most out of limited means. With one location and only six main characters, it manages to wring quite a bit of creepiness out of its familiar martian doppelganger premise.
