WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY, based on the most beloved alien invasion story of all time by H.G. Wells has been picked up by Amazon Prime and can be viewed free with membership. Like Wells’ story presented as a news reporter’s first hand memoir, and the 1938 Orson Welles broadcast where people believed an actual invasion was happening, the movie reveals there was a war between Earth and Mars in the year 1900 and is presented as his eyewitness account.
There have been many versions of the seminal alien invasion story brought to the screen, including an exciting new BBC – 3 part tv mini series being lensed in 2018. War of the Worlds the True Story is the only Victorian set true-to-the-period critically acclaimed adaptation created to date.
Ain’t It Cool News 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.”
Critic Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times said, “’War of the Worlds The True Story is clever like Wells. Hugely inventive and ambitious, a mock sci-fi docudrama packed with a truly impressive — and clever — mix of editing (a reported 3 1/2 years’ worth), special effects, visual artistry and offbeat storytelling.”
