Invisible enemy threatens the world, 26 January 2005
Author: Chris Gaskin from Derby, England

I have seen Invivisble Invaders a couple of times now and found it rather enjoyable, despite reading some bad reviews about it.

Invivisble aliens plan to take over the world by taking over dead bodies, that make the humans zombies. A small group of scientists go to hide in a cave to find a way to defeat these aliens and they eventually succeed by making a device that makes high pitched sounds, which is the aliens' weakness. After killing several of these in this way, their flying saucer appears and is destroyed and the world is saved.

The special effects are not too bad for a low budget movie and the music score is rather eerie.

The movie stars sci fi regulars John Agar (Tarantula, The Brain From Planet Arous), Robert Hutton (The Colossus Of New York, The Slime People), horror star John Carradine (The House Of Frankenstein, The Black Sleep) and Jean Byron as the love interest.

This movie is worth seeking out, especially for fans of 1950's science fiction like myself.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
