THE PLOT:

Dr. Karol Noymann was a noted scientist who was killed in a lab accident. Later Karol shows up at the door of his coled Dr. Adam Penner. Karol has been taken over by an alien from outer space who demands that Adam convince the world to surrender to his inviable invaders or be destroyed.

When the world refuses to surrender the non visible threat starts attacks all over the world. But unable to be seen they go unanswered. Plus, armies of walking dead start devastation all over the globe, the question remains how can you kill what you can't see?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I like this movie, it has a unique twist on two genres. Genre one, the invisible monster story, genre two, the invasion from space story and three, the walking dead story. All these elements were pureed and placed in a bowl and mixed together in one plot. Now, this isn't a perfect movie by any means, it was short and I would have liked to have seen more of the monsters visible. Even if it was in their own ship. Also, the use of stock footage is a tad annoying, but hey, what B-movie didn't use stock footage at this time period. The cast does a great job in this movie, they make it their own. But Carradine's part might have been brief but memorable. A true classic in most sense of the word and I think you might enjoy the INVISIBLE INVADERS...8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I kind of agree but the use of stock-footage really bugged me, it always does and it always take a mark off of a movie when I review it. It's lazy movie making and sloppy. But other then that I kind of enjoyed the movie. 7 STARS
