Alternate Versions

About ten years later, this film was re-released in a edited and re-titled version. Approximately two reels of footage was removed and it was re-titled "Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth." In the early 1980s, this edited and re-titled version was released again during the brief 3-D revival of that period. See more »

Childhood trauma
4 January 2004 | by Otto_Partz_973See all my reviews

I have a real soft spot for this awful movie. I had nightmares for weeks after seeing it on its release; I was 6 years old. I remember ripping the 3D glasses off my face in abject terror. I would have run screaming from the theater if I had not been in the company of a large group of friends. Years later, I still had a rather vivid memory of the images that had terrified me and I searched high and low for this movie. When I finally found a VHS copy I was astounded at how cheesy and tame the whole thing was, though when I came to the part that had originally traumatized me, I still found it rather unnerving. I can't recommend it to the average viewer, but genre fans (that bad 60's horror genre) and 3D enthusiasts might want to take a look.
