It was OK for a 1st of two bill movies
4 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw this film, it was in the 1981-1982.

It was titled Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth. It was the first of two movie bill at a local theater in Dayton, Ohio. I don't remember a lot of the movie.

What I remember is the events around the 2nd movie a new movie was released and the title was John Carpenter's The Thing one of the star's in The Thing was Kurt Russell.

He had just recently made a movie about Elvis Presley Most of the people in the audience were women with their kids and the Elvis gear on.

Once the Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth was over the women were excited and they stayed until the husky dog got ripped open they left running in droves.

That's my best memory for The Bubble aka Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth
