Operation 11 Candles

"Ladies and Gentlemen, I wish I could convey the atmosphere... the background of this ...fantastic scene.  Hundreds of cars are parked in a field in back of us.  Police are trying to rope off the roadway leading to the farm.  But it's no use.  They're breaking right through.  Car's headlights throw an enormous spot on the pit where the object is half buried.  Some of the more daring souls are now venturing to the edge. ..."*

"A humped shape is rising out of the pit.  I can make out a small beam of light against a mirror.  What's that?  A jet of flame springing from the mirror, and it leaps right to the advancing men.  It strikes them head on!  
Good lord!  They are turning into flame!"*

The invasion has begun!
