ZMMM Dailies: 6/22/2010 – Invisible Invaders

Posted by Cory Casciato On June - 23 - 2010

So, after two logistical delays, I finally get to watch Invisible Invaders! And it was so, so not worth the wait.

This came out at basically the same time as Plan 9 from Outer Space (review here) and it’s more or less the same movie. Aliens come to Earth and reanimate dead people in a plot to conquer the planet. Here, four people hole up in a bunker to do some science and fix those aliens, but good! And after some not-very-exciting adventures, they do! With sonic rays, which necessitates a big, kludgy sonic ray gun that looks like it was built by a team of six-year-olds. In between, we get lots and lots of stock footage, lots and lots of narration (at least two-thirds of the story is told in voiceover narration) and a really dumb romantic subplot. There are also some zombies, but they are almost incidental. They are supposedly unstoppable, but they are never shown doing anything but lumbering around with their arms held out. I almost fell asleep.

Of course, that was partly because I was exhausted. Kids, never take on four special projects in the weeks before your wedding, okay? Just don’t do it. That also meant I had to skip the short again. Sorry. Shorts will return, but it might be another day or two.
