Invaders From Mars
Tobe Hooper directs this 1986 remake of the 1953 sci-fi film by William Cameron Menzies. When David Gardner (Hunter Carson) claims to have witnessed a UFO landing in a quarry behind his home, his parents George and Ellen (Timothy Bottoms and Laraine Newman) refuse to believe him. But when his parents and the other townspeople begin to exhibit some odd behaviour, David seeks the help of the school nurse Linda Magnuson (Karen Black), the only person who believes him, and together they try to get to the bottom of the weird events.
One night, young David McLean sees a spaceship crash into a nearby sandpit. His father goes to investigate, but comes back changed. Where once he was cheerful and affectionate, he's now sullen and snarlingly rude. Others fall into the sandpit and begin acting like him: cold, ill-tempered and conspiratorial. David knows that aliens are taking over the bodies of humans, but he'll soon discover there have been far more of these terrible thefts than he could have imagined.
