Otto Matic: Alien Invasion in Review – War of the Worlds

ottomatic1When I was a little girl, my mother fueled my interest in old B&W science fiction movies that weren’t very good at all. They were entertaining though and many laughable. These types of movies are commonly known as “B-Movies” and many a Saturday I spent watching them totally transfixed. I would also freak out over movies like “My husband is a monster from outer space” or “Giant Brains” which threatened to take over the world.

I grew to really enjoy these bad B-movies, so if you are a sci-fi aficionado, you’ll want to give Otto Matic: Alien Invasion a very close look.

Sometimes we’d get as much as 20-30 feet off the ground. When we landed and picked up our hover boards, we knew we had travelled back to the future.
