Reading that title, I imagine you are probably scratching your head wondering, 'what is he talking about?'
Well to answer your question, what I am talking about are movies that are not exactly, 'Alien Invasion' movies... because Alien invasion movies usually denotes a large force coming to Earth to do some serious damage... So in the case of Alien Attack films I am talking more about those films where a group of humans, end up fighting to save their own lives against a singular superior Alien or more then one enemy...
And so I thought that you guys might enjoy this list of: Five Classic, 'Alien Attack' Movies That Went On To Be Remade Before Remakes Were, 'Trendy.'
At number 5:
And the remake:
Please enjoy these trailers for Predator (1987) and Predators (2010)!
With number 4:
The Blob (1958):
And the remake:
The Blob (1988)
For more information on these two classic movies, please enjoy these trailers for, The Blob (1958), and The Blob (1988)!
At number 3:
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956)
Now This one is a little bit different... Basically over all these 3 movies all tell the story of a smallish area, 'A small town' in one movie, 'A more confined community' in the sequel, 'and an Army base in the last one,' in these movies pods come down and sort of take over the image of humans, while disposing of the humans they have come to look like...
So in the end, I am counting this one, because it may not be necessarily just an, 'Alien Attack Movie', but they are certainly not quite, 'Alien Invasion films' either!
For more information on these movies, please enjoy these trailers for: Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956), Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978) & Body Snatchers (1993).
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956):
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978):
Body Snatchers (1993):
And last but certainly not least, at number 1:
The Thing From Another World (1951)
This one I felt had some merit in giving special attention... Now the reason for this is that, The Thing From Another World (1951) would be remade by John Carpenter (Halloween) in 1982, and would just be called, 'The Thing', and there would later be a prequel to Carpenter's movie just called, 'The Thing' which would be made in 2011!
For more information, please enjoy the trailers for, The Thing From Another World (1951), The Thing (1982) & The Thing (2011)!
