Storyline

WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY is based on the most beloved alien invasion story of all time by Father of Science Fiction, H.G. Wells. Like Wells' classic book that was presented as a news reporter's first hand memoirs, and the famous 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast that caused Americans to believe an actual invasion was in progress, WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY assumes the world knows there was a war between Earth and Mars in the year 1900 and is presented as the eyewitness account of Bertie Wells, the last living survivor of the Earth/Mars War as he struggles to find his wife amidst the destruction of humankind at the hands of terrifying alien invaders.

My Favorite Found Footage Movie
24 November 2017 | by alanonhelpsSee all my reviews

I have read H. G. Wells my whole life. This is the most delightful movie version of War of the Worlds I have ever seen. Left me wondering whether there was a cover up. Jumped a few times. I really appreciated how accurate to the novel this movie was. Because it's available on Prime I get to watch it over and over. It's the kind of movie that reveals more and more as you watch it.
