Once upon a time, there was a girl. That very girl woke up one night and could see, but not move. She did; however, freak the hell out. She flailed her arms and legs until they finally moved. Then, she did the only thing left to do…check outside to see if the mothership was beaming up any alien life forms.
If you haven’t figured out yet that it was me…it was. I thought aliens had come to either take me away or implant their spawn in my womb. Being older, I know that there were no aliens that night.
With The 5th Wave coming out next week, I can’t help but wonder again about their existence and their contribution to the horror genre. There have been so many movies and TV shows depicting alien life forms is various ways, which I find scary as hell.
There are five alien movies that I feel are the most thought provoking and the scariest.
A farm family wakes up to find a 500-foot crop circle in their backyard and are told that extraterrestrials are responsible. The circles begin appearing all over the world as the family grapples with the fact that Earth is being invaded.
***Yeah. Enough said. I know there are people out there who have figured out how to create crop circles, but still…
***As campy as this movie was, I still wonder if there aren’t possessed people walking the Earth right now. This idea is similar to the one in The 5th Wave too.
I don’t think that The 5th Wave is really considered horror, rather it’s science fiction, but the concept is one that fills me with fear and dread–isn’t that really what horror is anyway?
