Alien Warning - The Day the Earth Stood Still

Taking a slight detour from our usual "ghostly" fare, I wanted to report on the new movie titled The Day the Earth Stood Still - featuring Keanu Reeves as Klaatu, Jennifer Connelly as Dr. Helen Benson, and Kathy Bates as Regina Jackson.

The Day The Earth Stood Still - All It's Cracked Up to Be?

If this new movie is any indication, 2009 may turn out to be the year that movies made from fiction become popular, especially if the hit movie Twilight is any indication. This new movie with Keanu Reeves, in particular, is based on the 1951 hit movie The Day the Earth Stood Still, directed by Robert Wise.

That 92 minute film mesmerized audiences as Klaatu, an alien on a peace mission to earth, and Gort, his robot, land in Washington in order to alert the world of impending doom. This theme is not only reminiscent of this 1950's sci-fi film, but it is also a reflection of the many themes you can find throughout Ufology and the many abduction stories you'll find throughout the literature. There are always aliens coming to alert the earth of impending doom - doom from nuclear holocaust, but more recently abductees report in stories and novels (and sometimes under hypnosis) that the warnings are about our environmental crisis and things like global warming.
