Let's face it: a movie in which Louise Fletcher eats a bullfrog can't be all that bad. Indeed, Tobe Hooper's remake of the 1953 classic Invaders from Mars is a total hoot, remaining loyal to the original while serving up a...  more »

This remake of the classic has a lot of promise given the talented cast, but Hooper fails to direct quality performances much of the time. Louise Fletcher (Nurse Ratched!) is the true star as Mrs. McKeltch, the creepy schoolteacher. The first third of the movie is pretty fun as David Gardner learns about the Martian invasion, and his ability to convince the school nurse and Marine general is a refreshing difference from many movies where bullheaded authorities refuse to even investigate allegations that could easily be proven false if desired. The ending is not satisfactory though, despite Dan O'Bannon writing the script. I suspect this is why the movie bombed at the box office. There are still some entertaining scenes here, so the movie is worthwhile for fans of the genre.
