War of the Worlds

1988 NR

H.G. Wells's imaginative and suspenseful sci-fi novel about Martians invading Earth has inspired creative geniuses from Orson Welles to Steven Spielberg, each of whom has put a unique stamp on the compelling story. The late-1980s television series based on Wells's novel stars Jaren Martin as Dr. Harrison Blackwood, who must rally mankind to combat the ferocious aliens that have risen out of hibernation with a thirst for revenge.
