Invading My Space: A Countdown to Halloween (Day 27)

When I set out to create an A-Z list of alien invasion films, I foolishly assumed that every letter of the alphabet would be more than covered with several movie titles to choose from.  This wasn’t the case.  Some letters just don’t get the play that others do.

So, I looked hard and eventually was able to fill in those slots.  An interesting list, probably not the best list, but I was swinging for diversity with this one.  I wanted everything from big budget mainstream blockbusters to low grade movies they won’t even keep in print anymore.

In any case, this is…
