The War of the Worlds Website
The hysteria centered around H.G. Wells’ story The War of the Worlds and its epic radio drama reading has been documented time and time again and to this very day remains one of the single greatest viral hoaxes of all time. That being said…
On DVD right now is the acclaimed mockumentary War of the Worlds: The True Story from director Timothy Hines. Floyd Reichman, Jim Cissell, Jack Clay, Anthony Piana, Susan Goforth, James Lathrop, John Kaufmann, Jamie Lynn Sease, Darlene Sellers, and Donovan Le star.
The DVD special features include:
WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE TRUE STORY, qualifier of the 85th Academy Awards, is based on the most beloved alien invasion story of all time by the 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.
The movie uniquely uses CUTTING EDGE VISUAL EFFECTS to blend a modern cast with BATTALIONS OF ACTUAL FIGHTING SOLDIERS, Golden Age Movie Stars, and previously undisclosed images of TENTACLED ALIEN CREATURES and their TEN-STORY HIGH, THREE-LEGGED FIGHTING MACHINES.
