'Invaders From Mars' Gets a Blu-Ray!

Oh Tobe Hooper, you loveable scamp. One of your more maligned movies is getting a solid Blu-Ray treatment from the folks at Scream Factory!

Invaders From Mars was a staple of the weekend horror double-feature scene on 1980's cable TV. I loved it so much. It combined Hollywood's Karen Black with middle-aged women eating frogs. What's NOT to love?

It warms my heart to know that I can get a cleaned up copy of this campy re-make classic on Blu-Ray starting tomorrow for less than $20.

If you've never seen it, I'll give you a short synopsis.

"An annoying kid sees a comet and tries to tell everyone that evil Muppets are turning the town into zombies. Karen Black is the school nurse who believes this annoying kid and tries to help him stop said invasion. Most likely because "school nurse" is the only trustworthy authority figure the aliens DIDN'T think to zombify."

Excited to spend sixteen dollars on this? Yeah you are...
