The actual aliens in the film are diminutive and based on a design Tatopoulos drew when tasked by Emmerich to create an alien that was "both familiar and completely original".

He decides to kill Benjamin's youngest boy, Samuel, and burns down his house. I chose Godzilla over Emmerich's earlier turkeys because it's such a colossal disappointment given the cast, budget, and resources Emmerich had to work with.

Scotti challenged the factual accounts of atrocities and stressed the "propaganda value that such stories held for the Americas both during and after the war".
