Stuart Pearson heads with his family to spend a summer vacation in Creek Landing, Michigan, with his brother Nathan Pearson and his sons and their mother Rose in an old lake house they had rented. When the television has trouble with the image, Stuart's son Tom and the arrogant boyfriend of his sister Ricky Dillman go to the attic and then to the roof, where Tom meets his cousin Jake and they find the antenna dish totally destroyed. Sooner they discover four alien invaders that are preparing an invasion of the Earth that use a mind control weapon that only affects adults and they lock the quartet in the attic. Now they need to a find a way to force the adults to leave the house and discover the vulnerability of the invaders to plot a defense plan to save our planet. Written by

At 17:10, Sparks, the first alien Tom and Jake encounter while on top of the roof, tells them "Hello, humans. We come from upstairs." This line was probably intended as a joke, where the word "upstairs" is mistakenly used to mean "space". It is also the likely source of the working title "They Came From Upstairs". See more »
At the end of the fight between Ricky and Nana (at around 1h 02 mins), the control plug is knocked out of Ricky's neck, but at the end of the film, immediately after "The End" appears (at around 1h 19 mins), he is shown at Annie Filkins' house where Bethany and Tom use a controller to control him again.

You really have to find your inner child, when you watch this. And really, why would you watch this expecting anything else then a silly little comedy? It delivers on that premise and has either good actors to support some crazy humor (I forgot her name, but one of the "Golden Girls") or some crazy idea (a device that ... well you see, if you watch the movie)!
Maybe the voice of reason, should prevent me from a 6/10 rating and rather give it a 4 or 5. But I actually liked the movie and the charm it developed. The fun, that the cast and crew obviously had, while shooting the movie, translates onto the screen. Sometimes you really need something really silly, to enjoy ... this one definitely fits the bill! (and kids will love it ;o) )
