Storyline

A crashed UFO and its reverse-engineered computer system take over the minds of soldiers at an air force base. The alien entity (in the guise of A.S.M.O.D.S., (Asmodeus), a strategic flight defense systems program for fighter jets) is discovered by tabloid reporter Frank McCall and D.O.D. Captain Harry Anders. They escape the base in a stolen F-19 and are taken to the Pentagon, where their story is met with understandable scepticism. An attempt by Asmodeus' minions to capture Frank & Harry for brainwashing convinces General Anheiser of their sincerity, and they return to the base and eventually face Asmodeus and its army of brainwashed soldiers. Written by Dave Foster <medman@wizvax.net>

Cartoon-like and not a very good one either.......
15 September 2009 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

With a make up as you go plot, "Invader" loses all credibility, and believability by the ten minute mark, after which you will be wondering what is going on, or better yet, you won't care what is going on. There is nothing endearing about a non-script micro budget film that tests your patience. It is not strange, it is not a cult film candidate, what it is, is a mess of a movie. The acting, effects, and everything else, reeks of "let's finish this thing", no matter if it makes any sense, let's just get it finished. Beware, "Invader" will not meet your expectations for a low budget sci-fi, because there is really no story being told. It is simply a mish-mash of bad acting, bad script, and marginal special effects. - MERK
