Right, it will be a good read.

Some differences in the script. Here's a bit I would like to have seen (in yellow.)

202. FLASH - CLOSE SHOT - MARTIAN

We see a head, hairless, reddish like the planet
itself, crossed by protruding veins which pulsate.
Dominant is a single multi-lensed eye with colored
pupils. The Martian is staggered by the light. He
lifts his strange, suckered hands to ward it off.


203. LIVING ROOM - CLAYTON, SYLVIA AND MARTIAN

Clayton turns with Sylvia to escape. The Martian
lunges after them. Clayton turns the flashlight on
the figure again. It stops, staggered. Clayton
flings the axe and the Martian reels back as the axe
hits. An unhuman SCREAMING sounds as it disappears
back into the cavity. This continues overscene as
Clayton swings Sylvia to the opening in the ceiling.
He snatches up the piece of cloth Sylvia dropped,
then follows.


204. INT. WRECKED FARMHOUSE - ATTIC

Sylvia comes up through the sloping floor, slides to-
ward a broken window, its frame sprung half out of
the wall. Clayton slides after her, through the
dormer window. They drop out between frame and wall.
The SCREAMING continues.


205. SPECIAL EFFECT - WRECKED FARMHOUSE AND MARTIANS

The unhuman SCREAMING comes overscene, wild. We see
the red leg of the sentinel Martian, which is moving.
In b.g. a machine is on the ground, misted. From an
opening comes a yellowish, strange-colored beam.
Visible in this are three moving creatures. Squat.
Thick through. Everything about them sags downward
under air weight and the pull of gravity. In f.g.,
Clayton and Sylvia flee wildly from the house.


206. EXT. FARMYARD - (NIGHT) - FEATURING CLAYTON AND SYLVIA

The two run from the direction of the house, smashing
through a burned hedge, their feet stirring hot ashes
and bright sparks in the darkness. The SCREAMING
trails away.

Nice, Loz. You did see the parts that didn't make it.

I always thought it was an axe. Doesn't he pick one up?

You hardly can but I think it is an axe. The same one he breaks the probe with.

Then it's possible that it's an axe.

It had to be something that cut the Martian and made it bleed. How else would some of its blood get splashed on Sylvia's scarf?
