Then they invent a gun which looks like it was knocked up in a woodwork class, that turns the zombie into a piles of soap bubbles. Competently directed by Edward L. Cahn, with a steady pace, a roaring melodramatic score by Paul Dunlap, a reasonable amount of spooky atmosphere, a pleasingly tight 67 minute running time, nifty and acceptable low-fi special effects, crisp black and white cinematography by Maury Gertsman, a nice sense of mounting dread, and cool moments of mass destruction, this modest, yet effective affair makes for an entertaining quickie romp. (We also get to thrill to many Carradine voiceovers.) The packaging for this Blu-ray release of 'Invisible Invaders' states that its 1.66:1 image has been given a new 1080p remaster. This killing turns Phyllis off, but after the kill the major says something sexy to her and meanwhile John has turned into a sniveling coward. First - John Carradine is vaporized in an atomic lab explosion and yet an invisible invader (which somehow has to drag its feet in the sand as it walks) can still take over the body.

If you call your self a zombie fan then you HAVE TO SEE THIS... We don't see too much of John Carradine, but we sure hear a lot from him as the disembodied voice of the Invisible Invaders coming to a planet near you. in lieu of any mass destruction scenes. Naturally they think Penner has gone loony. Really the amount of detail only ever comes through in close-ups of the cast and the impressive alien/zombie makeup work. Another thing is that you get the very good actor John Agar in both of these very low budget movies. The film isn't that bad in concept, but mistakes, goofs and continuity fluffs drag it down far more than it should be. Indeed, when the movie itself resumes and director Cahn takes the reins, entertainment flies out the window. It's difficult or me not to believe that word of Wood's film had reached Alex Gordon and Cahn. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The invaders are defeated with the simplest of weapons. Rounding out the cast with Jean Byron, Robert Hutton, and Philip Tonge, the thin group of actors try to do what they can with cardboard sets, reacting to stock footage, and cheap camera tricks to help the audience believe the end of the world is nigh. To that end, you may need to invite a good-sized group of friends over. It's hammy, it's coated in canned Cheez Wiz, and a lot of the story mechanics can induce a fair bit of laughter.

Disabling it will result in some disabled or missing features. at a hockey game today and said the world is about the end, some of the guys in the cheap seats would go up there and beat him up instead of running away. The results don't always work as intended, but it's still a lot of fun to seem them work together. John Agar (Major Bruce Jay), Phillip Tonge (Dr Adam Penner), Jean Byron (Phyllis Penner), Robert Hutton (Dr John Lamont), John Carradine (Dr Karol Noymann), Hal Torey (The Farmer). "Plan 9" was completed 3 years earlier and remained unreleased until shortly after "Invaders" made it to the screen. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. There are no lines and scraps either. There is a notable layer of fine film grain present, but the film as a whole appeared to have been shot in a soft focus, perhaps in an effort to hide certain cheaply produced features? The Earth is being attacked by mysterious invisible invaders. The invaders have turned the world’s own weapons on them in order to carry out their diabolical plan.

I would urge people to consider the connections between Ed Wood, AIP, and Edward Cahn. Often the starting point was that radiation from A-bomb tests was causing headaches for Mankind, making people radioactive was one of the few things it did not do!

That is, of course, until we learn we are no longer alone and that an ancient advanced race of alien beings has been living on the moon all along. I thought, "Hey, I'm really going to like this film." Invisible Invaders is the type of awkward movie that is inept and bad in so many ways that it's good. Perhaps, the director Edward L. Cahn thinks so in order to draw some laffs. Sequestered in an impregnable laboratory trying to find the aliens' weakness, Penner, his daughter, a no-nonsense army major and a squeamish scientist are attacked from outside by the aliens, who have occupied the bodies of the recently deceased.

| I had a blast with this flick all the way through and those who appreciate 1950s sci-fi camp should have a great time with it. For centuries, this alien race has watched us, studied us, and had deemed us a primitive species. Perhaps it's all of these qualities working together that make so many 1950s science fiction adventures so much fun to watch? Physicist Adam Penner (Philip Tonge, featured in "House of Wax" and "Macabre") objects to the arms race. The clunky message (the way the film presents it is clunky), is that all the world’s nations should be working for peace and not getting into the nuclear arms race. Mr. Cahn's painfully inept direction gleans only a minimum of atmosphere and tension from some quite promising Newman material. However you do get that bad narration style of movie making.

Collected in this bunker are Major Jay (resident in the B-movie universe, John Agar), the soldier/protector of the group, scientists, Dr. Penner (Philip Tonge) and Lamont (Robert Hutton), and Penner's daughter, Phyllis (Jean Byron). Eddie Cahn's "Invisible Invaders" is a fun film despite its extremely low budget, especially for fans of the genre, thanks to an interesting premise and memorable performances from genre stars John Carradine and John Agar. 'Invisible Invaders' comes with a pretty effective English DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio mix. 'Invisible Invaders' arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Kino Lorber and their Studio Classics line. Someone's idea of a joke? Highly recommended for those who understand that a film doesn’t have to be good to be enjoyable. (Interesting enough "Karol Noymann" was also the name of a scientist in the 1957 sci/fi'er THE GIANT CLAW directed by Fred F. Sears. Aliens, contacting scientist Adam Penner, inform him that they have been on the moon for twenty thousand years, undetected due to their invisibility, and have now decided to annihilate humanity unless all the nations of earth surrender immediately. This isn't a zombie movie in the modern sense, but a sci-fi alien offshoot of the mind-controlled zombies out of the voodoo genre. The dubious science aside, there is an interesting plot – scientists besieged in a bunker against the reanimated dead outside – there is much here that prefigures Night of the Living Dead (1968) – and their attempts to find a way of combating the menace, which include venturing out and trying to trap one of the zombies in a pit of acrylic and capture the possessing alien before it flees the body. All in all, a tedious 1950's "good U.S. earthlings versus the heartless alien invaders" movie, which can be appreciated only as campy fun. Indeed, with its plot of alien invasion using the reanimated dead, you could almost call Invisible Invaders a more competent version of Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959). Amazingly enough, the two films were released hardly two months apart, meaning that two writers, Ed Wood for 'Plan 9' and Samuel Newman for 'Invisible Invaders,' somehow concocted the same goofy idea at about the same time and both films got funded, cast, produced, and made their way to theater screens!

Many other filmmakers may have taken a dip in this cinematic pool. In "Invisible Invaders" invisible invaders from the moon take over the corpse of scientist John Carradine who brings extra-terrestrial warnings from space to the protagonists of the film. Now a group of people gather together in a bunker laboratory to work on a way to defeat the invisible invaders while zombies lurk outside. It's silly, fun & entertaining. An alien army takes over the bodies of the recently dead to force Earth to surrender because of their destructive tendencies and their risk to neighboring planets or face annihilation.
