Traumafession:: Kinderpal Turnidoff on Strange Invaders
I just watched this film again recently and lo and behold, the strong influence of seeing my life though Kindertrauma eyes reeled its ugly head. Your influence on me is chilling.
This film is standard small town inhabited by space aliens Sci-fi formula. The plot is very similar to Fulcis ZOMBIE 2 (1979) but with an 80s Spielbergian flare. Its a PG film, but PG back in the day wasnt PG at all. More like a hard PG-13.
There is plenty of traumatic scenes for a 10 year old to stumble upon. The worst is when one of the aliens absorb the essence of a small boy. The boy looks with terror as his feet shrivel up and screams as his body caves in on itself. All goopy and gory like.
The effects actually hold up. The aliens are still pretty damn creepy looking with their black obsidian eyes!
