Strange Invaders (1983)
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest shows up as FBI agent, Diana Scarwid (Mommie Dearest, Rumble Fish) plays an alien mother of a child from earth and Brian De Palma favorite Nancy Allen (Dressed To Kill, Carrie) takes on what has to be her most unsexy role of all time as a short haired, shoulder pad wearing magazine publisher.
Strange Invaders does have some nice special effects. Faces are ripped off, children melt, and the aliens spew out this yellowish green blood that reminds me of Phantasm. We also have a bunch of car explosions and a giant flying saucer. However this is not enough to save Strange Invaders from being just another piece of crap from the 80's. Don't waste your time.
