INVADERS FROM MARS (1986 U.S.) D: TOBE HOOPER W: DAN O` BANNON/DON JAKOBY P: YORAM GLOBUS/MENAHEM GOLAN
As part of this three picture deal with Cannon (along with TEXAS CHAINSAW 2 and LIFEFORCE), Hooper delievred this Reagan-era remake (that doesn`t change much from the original, apart from some pretty good SFX monsters, courtesy of John Dykstra and Stan Winston) that`s been mercilessly panned since it`s release. It`s not very good, but maybe because i`m no fan of the original, it didn`t irritate me as much as it did others. Hunter Carlson (Karen Black`s real-life son) stars, with Black, Timothy Bottoms, Laraie Newman, James Karen, Bud Cort, Louise Fletcher, Eric Norris, Dale Dyue, Phil Fondacaro and original star Jimmy Hunt all grown-up..
