the invaders

Creator: Larry Cohen

Cast: Roy Thinnes, Kent Smith, Mark Russell

David Vincent, an architect returning home after a hard day parks his car in an old ghost town in order to rest for a while before continuing on home. But suddenly is a wake by a strange noise, he can not believe it when he sees a UFO landing. Now trying to tell that to the police and make them believe what he sees is an other story.

The Invaders, alien beings from a dying planet. Their destination: the Earth. Their purpose: to make it their world. Well they remade this one as in Falling skies. But this cool little series that did only two season kicked ass big time. It was never been done before a cool original idea.In a nutshell, The Invaders is basically a blending of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956). The thing is instead of making it in the form of the fugitive the series, every week someone that Vincent trust in a city got runs out to be an alien it got old a little quickly. They make interesting but with not enough gusto. Do not get me wrong it is still watchable and I still like it.  Plus the special effect back then was so cool.
