Movie Reviews

A perfect 2-for-1...and yes, it's anamorphic
Daniel W. Kelly | Long Island, NY United States | 02/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Two classic "retro" sci-fi flicks from the 80s on a single disc (it's a double sided disc, one movie on each side). These two alien movies with a 50s feel star plenty of horror veterans including Karen Black, Nancy Allen, and Louise Fletcher (who's in BOTH!). Although it doesn't even say it on the DVD case both films have a 2:35:1 aspect ratio and are both enhanced for widescreen TVs. Strange Invaders is mono, Invaders from Mars is Stereo with rear channel surround track. The films themselves haven't been impressively remastered or anything, they both have some grain and tears on the prints--of course, that adds to the retro feel of the films."
Wonderful Sci-Fi Package Of Films, Thanks MGM!

"This is great package of two great sci-fi films Strange Invaders oh yes i remember this one, my scout leader show us boys this one over at his house when we had party one night, i tried to watch it but got too spooked and end up talking with him upstairs about stuff ahh the memories! i felt like such chicken, but the fellas did'nt give me a bad time, V the series was on that year and i was weirded out by things that ripped their faces off. i did'nt remember the title of the movie and want to buck up and see the ending because i felt cheated, well all those memories kick in when i began to watch it i did'nt really remember the starting just the middle as kid i probably was'nt paying too much attention to the starting. This really is a cool film and the effects hold up well there quite good. I really like it now and i'm less scared but still does give me the creeps a little the end is great. and Then there's Invaders From Mars this very excellent remake of the 1950's film very campy but a fun romp of film this one is creepy too, but by the time this one came out i was little bit older and could handle scary movies. I'm glad mgm decided to put both of these classic films together in one package dvd. Oh the main reason i bought this title is it had Invaders from Mars on it. but i'm glad i have the other film too Tobe Hooper directed this film and other horror classic Poltergiest.

Both PG For Profanity And Spooky Violence .

Highly Recommended Films.

P.S. For Older Kids 11 & UP"

"I first saw Invaders From Mars when I was 5 or 6 years old and as much as I was terrifed, I was in love. This was a brilliant film, and it's limitied technology does not at all deter from the quality of scares and creepiness that it entails. I highly reccomend this for all SciFi addicts and horror flick movie buffs alike."
All Out Invasion!...

"What a terrific double feature this is! STRANGE INVADERS has a man (Paul Le Mat from PUPPET MASTER) searching for his missing ex-wife (Diana Scarwid from PSYCHO 3 and WHAT LIES BENEATH) only to find himself in the middle of a conspiracy involving the government and aliens from another world. Nancy Allen (CARRIE, DRESSED TO KILL, ROBOCOP) plays a tabloid reporter who joins Le Mat in his quest for the truth. Together, they uncover the 25yo secret that will change their lives forever. Louise Fletcher (ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, INVADERS FROM MARS) is a government official trying to stall our heroes and hide the extraterrestrial reality. Also, look for Kenneth Tobey (THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA) as an alien, June Lockhart (SHEWOLF OF LONDON, TV's LOST IN SPACE) as grandma, and Mark Goddard (Don on TV's LOST IN SPACE) in a flash-cameo as a cop! Next, we have INVADERS FROM MARS, with Karen Black (TRILOGY OF TERROR, BURNT OFFERINGS, THE PYX, EVIL SPIRITS, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES) as a school nurse trying to help a boy who has witnessed the beginning of an alien invasion. The boy's assimilated parents are played by Timothy Bottoms and SNL alum Laraine Newman (Connie Conehead!). Louise Fletcher returns as a creepy, alien-ized teacher. INVADERS FROM MARS has plenty of eeevil monsters for our US marines to battle. James Karen (POLTERGEIST, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD) plays the intrepid USMC general in command. Director Tobe Hooper (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE '74, EATEN ALIVE, POLTERGEIST, SALEM'S LOT, TOOLBOX MURDERS) heaps on the tasty cheeze in this sci-fi epic. Together, these films make for a wonderful evening of action, suspense, mystery, and gobs of green goo..."
