H.G. Wells' The war of the worlds

Wells' chilling story of the invasion of Earth by Martians and his observations dealing with panic and destruction become even more frightening when translated to the cinema. Wells' original story was updated to include the morbid fascination of Americans in the 1950's with atomic energy/weaponry and alien (read "foreign") invaders.
