THE BUBBLE
aka THE FANTASTIC INVASION OF PLANET EARTH
1966, Kino Lorber, 91 min, USA, Dir: Arch Oboler

Writer-director Arch Oboler, who kicked off the original 3-D movie craze with BWANA DEVIL, devised this “Twilight Zone”-esque sci-fi spine-tingler to showcase “Space-Vision,” which produced a widescreen 3-D image from a single strip of film. Michael Cole and Deborah Walley star as newlyweds whose plane is forced to land near a town whose inhabitants appear to be living on autopilot. This one is packed with great visual gimmicks - when the drink tray floats by, you’ll find yourself reaching for a beer!
