'Marines have no qualms about killing Martians, son,' is my favourite line of dialogue from this movie . . .

As vivid as a nightmare.

Shapeless 80s horror; a drag despite a hip pedigree.

Fun and fascinating Hooper reworking of the 50s classic.

a clunky remake that fails to frighten

Audience Reviews for Invaders from Mars

Great creepy 1980's smalltown alien invasion movie. Louise Fletcher was creepy as the school teacher.

This remake of the 1953's sci-fi classic, about the boy who sees the Martians landing, is so true to the original that it is extraordinary exciting.
