In honor of Leap Day, we're leaping back in time to the fifties with Sean's pick, the 1957 sci-fi B-movie bonanza Invasion of the Saucer Men, about a group of dumb teenagers, dumb con men, and dumb army dudes running afoul of some equally dumb bulb-headed aliens.
Talking points: Happy Leap Day! The cover. American International Pictures. Lover’s Point. Bug-eyed aliens. Artie as an unreliable narrator. Alcoholic subtext. Uncomfortable rape humor. Why drive with your headlights off? A sleepy protagonist. Alien vs. bull. Incompetent cops. Buy it/rent it/tape over it. John Hughes.
