In the fifties, Hollywood came out with outstanding science fiction movies dealing with alien invasion: 1] The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951); 2] The War of the Worlds (1953); 3] Invaders From Mars (1953); 4) This Island Earth (1955); 5) Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956); 6] Earth vs. The Flying Saucers (1956)
The Philippines produced probably its first Sci-Fi movie on alien invasion in 1956. The movie, ExZur, released by People's Pictures, Inc. starred a newcomer in the person of Jose Velez, a former 'Mr. Philippines' titleholder. It was serialized in Liwayway magazine by Nemesio E. Caravana and featured the destruction of City Hall, Bureau of Post and Quezon bridge by an armada of flying saucers. The movie, directed by Teodorico C. Santos, boosted a big cast headed by Danilo Montes, Edna Luna, Jose Romulo, Cynthia Zamora, Patria Plata and Lauro Delgado.
