Storyline

David Vincent, an architect returning home after a hard, hard, day parks his car in an old ghost town in order to rest for a while before continuing on home. Suddenly, in the middle of the night, something wakes him: a strange object, nonhuman, that is landing in front of his eyes. From this moment, he will be trying to persuade a skeptical world that the invasion of our planet is going on, that the nightmare has begun. Written by Luis Carvacho <lcarvach@lascar.puc.cl>

Trivia

The true form of the Invaders was never completely revealed, except for glimpses of the creatures in two episodes. The Invaders' human forms were unstable and had to be "regenerated" periodically, or else they would die. See more »

Goofs

Often, when the UFO is on the ground, no shadow is visible for certain sections of the ship, yet others cast a shadow, indicating part of the ship was already filmed and was blue-screened in later. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: The Invaders: alien beings from a dying planet. Their destination: the Earth. Their purpose: to make it *their* world. David Vincent has seen them. For him, it began one lost night on a lonely country road, looking for a shortcut that he never found. It began with a closed deserted diner, and a man too long without sleep to continue his journey.

THIS should be a movie
14 January 2007 | by Homer900See all my reviews

Of all of the TV shows of the past made into movies that stink, maybe, just maybe, some young, serious minded script writer will stumble upon this on late night TV somewhere and produce a script for a motion picture version.

No MTV style quick cuts, no gangsta rap, no tricked up CGI, except as needed. Keep the seriousness of the Quinn Martin original and turn it loose. This was an amazing series, especially for a 12 year old, coming as it did, at the height of series of UFO sightings and reports during that time period.

The whole concept was chilling. This would be a good movie, or even better, a new series, keeping in line with the original.
