Storyline

Aliens, contacting scientist Adam Penner, inform him that they have been on the moon for twenty thousand years, undetected due to their invisibility, and have now decided to annihilate humanity unless all the nations of earth surrender immediately. Sequestered in an impregnable laboratory trying to find the aliens' weakness, Penner, his daughter, a no-nonsense army major and a squeamish scientist are attacked from outside by the aliens, who have occupied the bodies of the recently deceased. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Invisible Invaders
2 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously, a cut above "Planet 9 from Outer Space". It has good suspense and adequate production quality for the time, genre, and apparently the film's low budget. I would have loved it at the Saturday coke-bottle-top matinée as a 10 year old. It probably inspired many a producer/director's subsequent "zombie" movie. All in all, a tedious 1950's "good U.S. earthlings versus the heartless alien invaders" movie, which can be appreciated only as campy fun. Unfortunately, todays alien invaders are more insidious, not so identifiable, but just as deadly. Sad to see John Agar, who was a pretty good actor given his prior work, in such a stinker.
