Storyline

Doris is eager to get pregnant, so she picks up her husband Roger and has her way with him. Their lovemaking comes to the attention of space aliens, who beam a small child-like creature into their living room, with a crash. Doris is delighted; for her, it's the child she's always wanted. But the lad, who says only the word ^Ópeanut,^Ô eats plates and goldfish, pulls utensils apart for the wiring, and in a short time, has built a device that may bring more like him to earth. Doris has had enough chaos and sets out to leave. Will she make it to the door? Might it all be a bad dream, or a prefiguring of what's to come? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Oh Canada! The NFB strikes again!
10 March 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's no "The Cat Came Back," but Strange Invaders is another quirky animated treat from Cordell Barker of the NFB. Compared to the other entries in this year's Short Animated Film category for the Oscars (with the notable exception of Ireland's "Give Up Yer Aul Sins"), Strange Invaders comes across as a refreshing dose of absurdity, conveyed through dazzling hand-made animation (as opposed to the CGI trend that seems to be slowly taking over). It's creepy, funny and distinct. Check this one out. Be be forewarned: you may never look at babies the same way again ("Peanut!").
