Storyline

Aliens, contacting scientist Adam Penner, inform him that they have been on the moon for twenty thousand years, undetected due to their invisibility, and have now decided to annihilate humanity unless all the nations of earth surrender immediately. Sequestered in an impregnable laboratory trying to find the aliens' weakness, Penner, his daughter, a no-nonsense army major and a squeamish scientist are attacked from outside by the aliens, who have occupied the bodies of the recently deceased.

Trivia

The decision to make the aliens invisible was more than a simple plot point. Producer Robert E. Kent insisted that the alien invaders remain unseen in a cost-saving measure. Without costly special effects, extras, and additional sets, the producer's decision helped to balance the film's otherwise severe lack of funds. See more »

Little Kids Will Like It
28 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Watching Invisible Invaders will make you aware of something -- that Night Of The Living Dead (which came 9 years later) is a truly impressive piece of film-making. While there were certainly worse films made in the 1950s, the mere existance of worse films will not cause me to praise Invisible Invaders for being better than those others. This film is bad on so many levels (silly stock footage, inept editing, rotten acting, bad writing, etc.). Small children will buy into all of it and find it terrifying (my 8-year-old and 5-year-old loved it) but anyone over the age of 9 will likely be disappointed. I had fond memories of this film from childhood -- wish I hadn't watched it as an adult.
