Movie Info

This slapstick parody of space movies chronicles the riotous exploits of a group of dim-bulbed, misguided aliens under the mistaken impression that they are supposed to invade the Earth after they hear a rebroadcast of Orson Welles' notorious "War of the Worlds" one Halloween night. Thinking they are late, they rush in with their ramshackle spaceship and end up in Big Bean, Illinois, a peaceful midwestern town. Naturally after they announce they want to kill the "Earth scum," the residents want to kill them. Fortunately, the town sheriff and his daughter try to keep the moronic Martians safe and help their captain get them safely back in space.

Audience Reviews for Spaced Invaders

  • Dec 17, 2018
    "Prepare to die Earth scum!" A wacky family comedy, Spaced Invaders is kind of fun but is a little too slap-sticky for most audiences. After misinterpreting an old rebroadcast of Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio drama on Halloween a Martian spaceship comes to Earth to join the invasion. It's actually a rather clever setup, ripe for a fish-out-of-water comedy. But the writing is really bad; the Martians are constantly doing Three Stooges-ish routines and making lame jokes. And the puppet work on the Martians (specifically the mouth and facial movements) isn't very good. Still, the creature designs have a retro '50s sci-fi sort of charm and some of the humor works. Yet while it delivers a few laughs, overall Spaced Invaders is a poorly made and incredibly corny kids' film.

    I thought this was pretty funny as a kid. I don't know how well it would hold up today though.
