A Film that Took Me Back to the Core of My Imagination. BRILLIANT!
15 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up on movies like The Goonies and Explorers. These movies shaped me, drove a childhood of pure imagination and remain some of the favorite memories of my life. With ATOMIC BRAIN INVASION, Richard Griffin created a film that took me right back. Atomic was a master achievement in writing, directing, acting, and production design. Amazing effects and design give the film a distinct flavor of 1950's Sci-Fi Drive-In style, and the authenticity is stunning. Ted Marr's production is spot on, and detail oriented. The cast is brilliant and funny, hitting all the right notes in their delivery of fun, pure character driven performance. Kudos to all. My kids will grow up with this film.
