Kino Lorber is releasing Director Patrick Read Johnson’s silly, funny, sci-fi parody, Spaced Invaders (1980) on Blu-ray.
EARTH WILL NEVER BE THE SAME! It’s a close encounter of the hilarious kind when five of the universe’s coolest aliens crash-land on planet Earth! Piloted by an ultra-hip Martian, the cosmic crew ends up in a sleepy Midwestern town. Unfortunately, it’s Halloween night, and as the local radio station replays Orson Welles’ 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast, the citizens mistake these little space invaders for harmless trick-or-treaters. Instead of the global invasion, they planned on these misguided Martians bungle their way into a series of madcap misadventures! Co-written and directed by Patrick Read Johnson (Baby’s Day Out, Angus) and starring Douglas Barr (TV’s The Fall Guy) as the town sheriff, with Royal Dano (House II: The Second Story), Ariana Richards (Jurassic Park) and Tony Cox (Bad Santa). Get set for an outrageous blast of intergalactic fun and outlandish special effects in this whacked-out comedy-adventure!
