The Martians don't actually are actually protecting themselves from US!!!... since the Earth probe landed on their planet they are taking measures to ensure their security by replacing our scientists with doppelgangers who report nothing. A very insightful film that was under-rated and ahead of it's time, with a 1963 vision of a primitive mars rover. Written by
Filmed at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Two years after this film was made, The City of Beverly Hills purchased the mansion in 1965. It was made into a public park in 1971. Tours are available from 10am to 5pm. Look online for dates and times. See more »
372 yards traveled in 6 minutes is not "just under 29 mph". 372 yards in 6 minutes is 2.11 miles per hour; it is a slow walking speed which appears to be the speed that the Mars explorer was moving. (372 yards traveled in 6 minutes = 62 yards per minute = 186 feet per minute = 3.1 feet per second = 2.11 miles per hour) See more »

Don't kid yourself as this is a very low budget shocker.But it is a shocker and a pleasant one at that.99% of the film is shot in one location but what a location!
A scientist with a troubled marriage sends a probe to Mars.Unknown to all concerned the probe sends back a little something,namely Martians as invisible energy beings.They become doppelgangers of the scientist and his family. Their mission is clear;to stop earth from travelling to Mars.(They like their high property values obviously).The Martians play havoc with his home life until the very end.
A small budget flick with an appealing cast of old pros.Quickly paced and well written by Harry Spaulding.Even a downbeat ending to add to the menace.Better than average and worth a look in a forgiving mood.
