There is a scene in a movie (could have been a show?) that I watched as a young child that was so horrifying and has stuck with me for the past 30 years. I cannot figure out the movie. Live action.

I remember the boy (white, longer hair cut common for boys in the 80s, 7-10 years old probably) was running through a field with trees in the distance. He was facing away from the camera so all you can see is his back. He slows and turns around to reveal that he now has a blue alien face. I believe that he has turned around because someone was calling to him or looking for him.

    @Valerie What is so horrifying about discovering that alien children exist? As a rule, human children are uusally less frightening than human adults, so alien children should be less frightening than alien adults, who might possibly be quite peaceful. Oct 25, 2022 at 18:09
  • Valid point, however as a human child I also found alien children to be terrifying. 🤷‍♀️

Intruders (1992), a four hour TV miniseries.

Movie poster for Intruders

He was playing in the yard and a boy waved to him to follow him. He leads him to a saucer in the woods and turns around and has an alien face but partially human. This is the same movie where aliens pose as cable men and walk through the walls of the woman's house to get her.

  • I edited in a link, and YouTube videos of the trailer, and that scene, for as long as they stay up.
