| Revenge of the 80's: The remake.
Invaders from Mars (1986) was a remake of the 1950's science fiction classic. Tobe Hooper slightly reinvents the original and updates the storyline. The story revolves around a strange alien craft that lands in a field. A young boy spots the craft but no ones listens to him or takes him seriously. Soon everyone around him begins to act very cold and strange. What can be the cause of this? Maybe the strange spaceship that landed in the abandoned field is causing this? Well it was the 80's.

Tobe Hooper made a very surreal and cool film. The special effects are excellent and the direction is on par. The acting is somewhat uneven. But the dialog and photography makes up for it. I enjoyed this movie when I was in junior high school and I still enjoy it to this very day. Another great film from Tobe Hooper.

Just don't take it too seriously. The movie is part homage and part remake of the original film and others like it that were made during the fifties.

Highly recommended.

Karen Black co-stars as the school nurse who believes the kid.
