Alien Trespass (2009)

The thinking behind this film is that it was made in 1957 but, for the usual behind-the-scenes studio politics, was never released (there's an optional intro on the DVD which explains this). Then, 50 years later, a flawless print was uncovered buried in a construction site.

The film it emulates the most is probably It Came From Outer Space (1953), though this is in color, with nods to The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) and I Married a Monster From Outer Space (1958) - this last might have been unintentional, but much of the plot revolves around a husband's body taken over by an alien.

This is probably a must-see for anyone who is a fan of the Golden Age of Sci-Fi (the fifties) and for those who grew up watching those films, but it's not a perfect simulation. The first scenes of the flying saucer moving towards Earth, for example, did not recall those old films for me; it just reminded me of the current use of computer FX which is everywhere. I did like the saturated color look; I've read that War of The Worlds - the 1953 film version - influenced this look.
