No, this is not a joke, and it certainly isn't a drill. The Netflix of theatrical experiences is here, and we are jumping for joy.
Just longer than 9 minutes, this short film takes the viewer back to the evening of October 30th, 1938 where Orson Welles' voice was vibrating across radio waves, bringing word of an invading alien army from Mars. And although the audio was performed as a Halloween special called "War of the Worlds", the theatricality and delivery of the performance, along with recent memories of the Hindenburg disaster a year before, sent many listeners into a panic. Nothing but a bad coincidence when Concrete, Washington experiences a blackout after a power transformer blows, sending the city and surrounding areas into darkness.
