    2038: George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs: being reunited with his dead wife.


Asian Invasion.

Invasion stars Edward Judd (The Day the Earth Caught Fire, First Men In The Moon) as Mike Vernon, the doctor in charge of treating a mysterious young man brought to hospital after being accidentally struck by a car. The man's blood tests prove puzzling, and, after questioning his patient, Mike learns that the stranger (Ric Young) is an extraterrestrial -- a Lystrian -- in pursuit of two escaped criminals. However, the Lystrian later reveals that he is actually the escapee, having absconded en route to a penal colony after being wrongfully found guilty of murder.

While Mike is tending to his otherworldly patient, the temperature rises rapidly inside the hospital, and the staff discover that they are trapped inside a force field, placed around the building by two other aliens, who claim that the Lystrian being treated inside is lying: he really is a dangerous killer and they must take him back into custody. Who is telling the truth?

A plodding pace, overwrought acting and the obvious low budget work against the film, but the intriguing 'who is telling the truth?' premise means that those viewers who stay the distance should find their patience rewarded, the final act resolving matters satisfactorily, with just enough left in the coffers for a few 'spaceship' special effects. Bridges struggles at times to make good with the very talky script, but he provides plenty of atmosphere and a couple of genuinely shocking moments: a car crashing into the force field, the driver catapulted through the windscreen, makes an impact (pun intended), and an incident with a pair of scissors is surprisingly nasty.

And, as is often the case with such films, there are a couple of things about Invasion that will elicit unintentional laughs, making this forgotten flick even more enjoyable for those who like their sci-fi a little schlocky: Y?ko Tani, as leader of the Lystrians (all of whom are, inexplicably, Japanese), takes the place of the hospital's Asian nurse, and no-one notices (because they all look the same to us, don't they?), and despite the temperature being raised in and around the hospital, it is possible to see the actor's breath in the obviously cold night air.

5.5/10, rounded up to 6 for IMDb.

Well-made Sci-Fi B Movie

I first saw this film on it's release in 1966, when it played as support to a Tony Randall comedy-thriller, Our Man in Marrakesh, however I thought that Invasion was much the more interesting of the two films. It is made on a minimal budget, with almost no special effects, but is, nevertheless well-directed and succeeds in putting it's story across. It just shows what can be done with a little imagination.


A sci fi film with plenty of atmosphere and understatedly directed by Alan Bridges.The script and storyline however are both a bit mundane, and the ending feels rushed.The title is completely misleading too.
