slasher. A series of GRUSOME,seemingly senseless murders
sweeping a small Midwestern town turn out to be the work
of local teens transformed by the brain experiments of
Lewis. Full of WEIRD moments and surprising bits of casting
this hits it's creative stride at a costume party where everyone
bops to the classic song LIGHNIN STRIKES while dressed as a 60's
TV sitcom character and a killer arrives sporting a Tor(Plan Nine From
Outer Space)Johnson mask.......Very Strange!
However I do hope that someone grabs 'strange invaders' from these same folks and puts it out on blu ray. It's a cult classic and a A+ effort that even has a closeup in it!
The film, set in Galesburg, Illinois, wastes little time as, within the first five minutes, someone dies from a serious cases of puncturitis (i.e. stabbed with a knife one too many times)...and from there we meet aspiring college student Pete Brady and his father John, who happens to be the sheriff in the small town.Read more ›
The film works because of Michael laughlins direction that develops the film on many levels. On the one hand there is lots of atmosphere and a suspenseful intensity that builds up to the films climax yet Laughlin also concentrates on character development and relationships giving us insights in to Chief Bradys (Michael Murphy) mysterious past and the close father/son relationship him and Pete (Dan Shor) have.
The film also pays close attention to small town life. In this small Louisiana town everyone knows everyone there are lots of nice little touches by Laughlin to point this out. Laughlins direction also has a humorous edge to it and the good acting adds to this. There is one incredibly surreal scene in the movie at a party where all the 'party-goers' start dancing in unison! They are all in 50's style fancy dress and dance in a hyperbolic 50's fashion! Although it is hard to decipher Laughlins motives here this scene seems incredibly inspired to me personally. Although some scenes in this film are quite shocking I cannot comment on the amount of gore in this film because I have only seen the cut release which has been cut considerably and panned and scanned. If only there was a widescreen version available I for one would instantly snap it up!
