|Enjoyable homage to 50's B-movies has entomology professor Charles Bigelow (Paul LeMat) searching for his missing ex-wife (Scarwid)...and uncovering a Midwestern town full of aliens.
Turns out the interstellar trespassers have been there since the late 1950s - and they're not about to leave!
Loses itself midway, but Strange Invaders has some terrific make-up effects, a John Addison score, and a cast peppered with genre regulars to keep it afloat.
In one of her best post-De Palma roles, Nancy Allen is delightful as a journalist who ends up joining forces with LeMat to stop the alien invasion. And Louise Fletcher is great as a government agent who knows more than she's telling.
Plus, where else could you find Fiona Lewis as a green-blood-spurting alien disguised as a diner waitress?
No classic, but worth a look.
