Storyline

Brothers Jake and Ethan witness something crashing to earth and discover that it is a satellite of some kind. Being broke, they collect it and sell it to the local scrap dealer, Earl. Earl, meanwhile, has built an 18 foot "Golem" out of scrap iron to be used in the local town parade. The satellite is infected with some type of space bacteria which feeds on metal and also causes said metal to become animated. The result is that the Golem becomes infected, comes alive, and begins killing people by sucking the metals from their body with just a touch. Jake must find a way to defeat the Golem and save the town. Written by Hubert Jassol

Vampiric bacteria from outer space, sure, why not...?
20 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Was this a cheesy and campy Sci-Fi movie? Well, let me answer that with a phrase used in the movie; "do bears crap in the woods?"

This movie, given it is a SyFy Channel movie, wasn't particularly interesting. Why? Well, because it was built on a really lousy script, and the story was just too far out there. I mean, I can understand the aspect with a stellar bacteria making its way to Earth, but for it to use metal as a host and then mysteriously enough make a 17-foot tall golem become animated and hunt down people for the metals in their blood? Seriously?

It was something right out of an old Sci-Fi movie from the 1960's. And if you enjoy those type of spaced out, campy Sci-Fi movies, then chances are that you will like "Iron Invader" as well.

The story in the movie is about a bacteria that originates from outer space, crashing down to Earth on a Russian satellite. Two brothers collect the pieces and sell it for scrap metal. However, at the junk yard, the metal becomes animated by the bacteria and adheres itself to a golem that the local junk yard owner is putting together. The bacteria animates the golem and hunts down the towns people in order to extract the metals and minerals from their bloodstreams.

Very stupid storyline if you ask me. If the bacteria needed metals and minerals, why didn't it just absorb it all from the metal found at the junk yard? And how can bacteria show signs of sentient thinking? Nah, this Sci-Fi movie was just a bit too spaced out and far fetched for me, and it was very hard to buy into the storyline.

However, it should be said that the golem was actually decent enough to look at, nicely animated and the CGI effects weren't too shabby. However, don't go expecting blockbuster Hollywood effects here - because it ain't so.

And the people on the cast list were doing fair enough jobs with what they had to work with. So at least that was working in favor of the movie as well.

If you enjoy Sci-Fi movies there are far better choices available on the market. But, as I mentioned earlier, you might get a kick out of "Iron Invader" if you enjoy the old school type of campy, cheesy Sci-Fi movies.
