Invader



Not going to lie. I've been in love with the War of the Worlds alien since the first time I saw it. And I always felt such pity for it when Dr. Forrester cleaned its clock and it ran away screeching. It would have been a great creature pet/buddy to have in the house. You come home from school and it's waiting there. You can read a book at night from the light of its tri-colored glowing eye.

Though I guess it'd have to live in a bubble. Common bacteria and all.


Found these GREAT photos on flickr. I had always assumed it was a smaller creature, and certainly not a costumed actor. I figured it was just a puppet.

it would stare at you for too long and you could just shine a flashlight at it. "Get outta here!"

it'd get all nervous if you started sneezing or coughing.

"relax...it's just allergies."

Ha! Thats the best! Give the little guy a break hey? He's just here to conquer...I have to say that was my favorite movie when I was a kid. Can't beat the sound effects from the martian war machines!
