Does John Travolta's Battlefield Earth contain subliminal messages recruiting Scientologists? Amid a flurry of bizarre claims and counterclaims, only one thing is certain: it is one of the worst movies ever made. Duncan Campbell reports It is the year 3000 and "man-animals" are scrabbling for survival in the lonely expanse of what the mighty Psychlos describe as "this pitiful excuse for a planet". It is also the year 2000 and a mere seven man-animals are scrabbling for their popcorn in the ...

HOLLYWOOD, May 10 — The anticult networks are kicking up a fuss. Discussion on Internet movie sites is picking over the potentially sinister implications. Anonymous e-mails are whizzing around the country charging that, among other things, subliminal messages are being used to recruit unsuspecting moviegoers. Big summer action movies, filled with stars and special effects, don't often come with such fascinating accessories. Battlefield Earth, starring John Travolta as a nine-foot alien with talons for fingers, will open in more than 2,000 ...

In yet another fine weekend for protest groups, the anti-scientology group FactNet has warned that "lawsuits may soon be flying" over John Travolta's upcoming Battlefield Earth. FactNet accuses the movie - adapted from a sci-fi novel by cult founder L Ron Hubbard and starring celebrity scientologist Travolta - of accommodating "subliminal messages to surreptitiously recruit new members from the movie audience".
