Storyline

An odd professor claims he can spot Martians, who masquerade as humans, using a pair of infrared glasses he wears. Only then can you see the third eyeball in the middle of their forehead. He relates his wild theory to a photographer sitting by him in a bar--and the man believes him. While playing around with infrared film, the photographer says he's snapped a shot of a man with three eyes. The two team up to convince authorities of their find.

Awesome--among the best in the series.
27 November 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Many episodes of the early horror anthology series "Lights Out" are available for free download from archive.org. While I love this genre, I must admit that there are quite a few terrible episodes available--and the good ones are pretty rare. In the case of "The Martian Eyes", this is one of the very best and I recommend you download it--along with "Dead Man's Coat".

The show begins with a crazy old guy (Burgess Meredith) talking very irrationally about the planet being inundated with Martians in disguise. In particular, he picks out a photographer to regale with stories about these folks having a hidden third eye. Well, up until the third eye comment, the man (David Lewis) just thought Meredith was a nut--but the third eye comment made him think. That's because the day before, he'd taken a picture using infrared paper--and it showed a three-eyed man! How can these two guys manage to expose the truth...no matter how crazy it sounds?!

"The Martian Eyes" is reminiscent of several later productions--such as "The Invaders", "They Live" and even an episode of "The Twilight Zone" (though in this one, Venusians have the third eye). Very clever, very paranoid and despite a few similarities, very, very unique and creative. See this one!!
