Before the BBC announced that a 3-part series of H.G. Wells’ novel The War of the Worlds, written by screenwriter Peter Hartness, Doctor Who, will go into production next spring, and will be set in the Victorian era, an already created, critically acclaimed version continues to gain new fans on Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime members can stream War of the Worlds the True Story for free or you can stream the movie as a stand alone for a pay-per-view price.

What if the Earth Mars war from H.G. Wells’ novel The War of the Worlds wasn’t just a story but actually happened? That is the premise of Timothy Hines’ WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY, contender in the 85th Academy Award Oscars, including consideration for best adapted screenplay, best editing and best original score.
Like the famous 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast that caused Americans to believe an actual invasion was in progress, the movie assumes an Earth/Mars War actually occurred in the year 1900 and is presented as the eyewitness memoir of journalist Bertie Wells, the last living survivor as he struggles to find his wife amidst the destruction of humankind at the hands of terrifying alien invaders.
Created by Timothy Hines (10 Days in a Madhouse, starring Caroline Barry, Christopher Lambert, with Kelly Le Brock, Chrome – the mini series, Bug Wars) and his producing partners, Susan Goforth and Donovan Le, Academy Award contender, WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY is now available on Amazon Prime!
Critics and fans have universally praised War of the Worlds the True Story such as Ain’t It Cool News, whose critic Ambush Bug raved, “The best film I had the privilege of seeing this week was WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE TRUE STORY.” With glowing praise, he went on to say things such as, “Even the sci-fi effects feel authentic with all of the shaky and grainy camerawork. I especially loved watching the attacks of both the aliens and the giant machines…Everything is treated with a serious and dire tone and there’s even a touching love story in the middle of it all as well to add an extra bit of depth that, coming from the narrator’s POV, will definitely make your heart swell.”
Ain’t It Cool News critic then summed it up by saying, “WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE TRUE STORY is one of the coolest little films I’ve come across in quite a while. As if the Orson Welles radio broadcast wasn’t mythic enough, along comes this mock-doc to add a whole new layer of intrigue to H.G. Wells’ fascinating story. Highly recommended to those who love revisionist history, alien invasion films, and thrilling real life documentaries.”
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 10-Story High, 3-Legged Fighting Machines.
