Spaced Invaders (1990) – By Jason S. Lockard


There is just something so ultra cool about movies from the 1980’s and 90’s. Maybe it’s nostalgia or maybe it’s the kid in me wishing I could go back to those days again. Whatever the case maybe when I read of the 25th anniversary blu-ray and DVD release of Spaced Invaders from Mill Creek Entertainment the kid in me jumped for joy.

This hilarious adventure follows five of the universe’s hippest and coolest aliens as they crash-land on Earth in a sleepy Midwestern town. The invasion that was planned now goes awry as it’s Halloween night and the citizens mistake these spaced invaders for harmless trick-or-treaters. Now these misguided Martians bungle their way into a series of madcap misadventures!

The special effects are typical for the 90s movies, but the film is just a load of fun for the entire family. In my opinion the film still holds up in 2015 just as good as it did in 1990. Kids of the 80s and 90s can show their kids this great release and relive their childhoods all over again.

This blu-ray features a beautiful film transfer, no bonus features, but for a kid of the 90s like me having this comedy sci-fi classic on blu-ray is more than worth the 15 bucks! You can also get it on DVD for just $10. So for fans of sci-fi comedies, 90s movies, or funny aliens this is a must own for your collection. I highly recommend you head over to and pick up a copy today!
