Amusingly off-the-wall sci-fi spoof

Kalamazoo Gazette

Fun but predictable sci-fi comedy

May 20, 2004
Film Journal International

Any sci-fi movie that features cameos by Kenneth Tobey and June Lockhart (both from television's Lost in Space) obviously has its heart in the right place.

Audience Reviews for Strange Invaders


Interesting and a bit creepy. Wasn't the best movie I ever saw, but not bad for something on TV.

Nicki Marie

This simple alien abduction tale seems to lean a lot on nostalgia, and getting a 50s sci-fi horror feel, even though the story isn't that good. The 50s ideology and atmosphere is there for the most part, but not all the way through, and I didn't like LeMat as the main character, he was boring. Overall, it's not bad, but it's not good, and I was bored by it.

For some reason, this movie used to scare the crap out of me as a child.
