SHOW NOTES:
In 1986 the director of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Poltergeist teamed up with the screenwriter of Alien and Return of the Living Dead to make a...children's sci-fi film! That project was Invaders from Mars, a remake of the '50s red scare movie of the same name. Do the creatures by Star Wars' Stan Winston and John Dykstra upgrade this film for the '80s, or is this film just a bad dream?
