You say you missed the Cold War and can't afford the skrilla for "Chernobyl" on HBO to see how it all turned out?

No problem! C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater has got you covered: this nifty relic of the science-fiction/Red-Scare boom of the 1950s, which holds up reasonably well, all things considered.

Communists (I mean Invaders From Mars) land in a young boy's back yard one night, but the next day the ship is gone and no one believes his story. Then adults begin disappearing, only to reappear with a sudden interest in virtues of collective farming.

Enjoy! And it's an open thread...

Can you help us out?
