Wade Williams had acquired the rights to Invaders from Mars (1953). For the remake rights, Williams received over 50 times the amount he had paid. Williams had already made a very handsome profit from the original film from television, cable and video releases. See more »

Remake of the overrated 1953 film is even worse. It has the same basic plot of young boy who witnesses a spaceship land in a nearby sand pit, and how the adults, starting with his parents, are taken over in the first step toward invasion, and of course the boy(along with the eventual help of the military) are the only ones to stop these martian invaders.
Pointless remake offers more elaborate monsters, but they still look awful, and film is too stupid and unpleasant to work, with a really crass ending that renders the whole film moot.
Forget this junk!
