SUBURBAN NIGHTMARES

SUBURBAN NIGHTMARES

“Suburban Nightmares” was a team effort by Larry Hancock, Michael Cherkas and John van Bruggen. Like “Silent Invasion” and “New Frontier” it deals with U.S. society in the 1950’s. It also deals with similar issues American dream and how reality falls far short of it, government conspiracy against its citizens and the background fear of communism, the belief in flying saucers (a prevalent belief in the 1950’s) and always the underlying sense of menace.
