Invisible Invaders/ Seventh Planet

Invisible invaders. Aliens, contacting scientist Adam Penner, inform him that they have been on the moon for twenty thousand years, undetected due to their invisibility, and have now decided to annihilate humanity unless all the nations of earth surrender immediately. Side B. Journey to the seventh planet. A U.N. space expedition to the planet Uranus discovers a bizarre world right out of their own heads, featuring places and people the crew members recall from childhood. It's all part of a fantasy created by the planet's master, a giant, pulsating brain that can also turn their worst thoughts into reality.

I really should have a rainy Saturday category. These two films are wonderful examples of low budget 1950s science fiction. ~Mike
