The robots are landing
10 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

I would call "the earth dies screaming" rural sci-fi since everything happens in an English village or in the country.And short weight too,cause the running time barely exceeds one hour.It's a low budget effort but so was "invasion of the body snatchers" .Terence Fisher's work is not in its league,by a long shot ,but its ET robots (icily impersonal)are all the more impressive since we know absolutely nothing about them.Add a good cast ,with Dennis Price as the stand out. Combining robots with living dead in ordinary places in daylight was perhaps not a very good idea on the paper,but it relatively works.Not the kind of movie you feel like watching again,but you can have a look.
