It was the original Fake News story.
In a small New Jersey town on the night of Orson Welles's legendary 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, the hoax that terrified millions into believing Martians were invading America, citizens face what they think is their last night on Earth. The over-worked town's mayor Clark will take a chance on love. The neglected housewife, Lorraine will break free from her big-cheese husband. The demure schoolteacher Peg will become a warrior. The aimless reverend will rediscover his faith. The scared Sheriff will find his courage. And the reclusive war veteran will become a hero as he convinces the town to fight the aliens. All these characters join forces for a final "battle" that leads to a surprising and hilarious outcome.
An alien invasion comedy where the aliens never show up.
