The Invaders are coming to remake your movies and only we can defend the Earth from the dreaded film remake.

Nov 30, 2016

House (1986) is a childhood favorite among the hosts of Invasion of the Remake podcast here in the mothership. Starring William Katt, Kay Lenz, George Wendt, and Richard Moll this comedy, horror made an impact on us, but now it seems a distant memory failing to achieve the cult status that many of its contemporaries had. Well we think it's time for a new audience to discover House and impart our supreme wisdom in what a remake could look like! Open the door, come on in. Try not to wake the dead.

With yet another remake in the planning Invasion of the Remake decided to go back in time to compare and contrast the two films based on the Roald Dahl novel. Willy Wonka and the Chocalate Factory (1971) starring Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, and Peter Ostrum is now considered a childhood favorite by many given the benefit of time, but wasn't a big success in the box office. Thirty-four years later director Tim Burton brought his vision of the classic novel to the silver screen in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) with Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore, Helena Bonham Carter, and Deep Roy to mixed reviews but a massive box office. Our very own Invasion hosts have divided opinions, but they all agree that Willy Wonka must pay for his murderous intentions. Is Willy Wonka a childhood favorite or a child murderer? Download this week's episode to find out.

The Mummy (1932) by Universal Pictures starring Boris Karloff, hot off of Frankenstein, took a world that had already caught Egyptian fever when Tutankhamun was discovered in 1922 by storm. It was a massive box office success that spawned several sequels at Universal and inspired many more films from other studios such as Hammer films. Stephen Sommers remade that iconic film in 1999 with stars Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weise, and Arnold Vosloo reviving the iconic horror film into a modern action/adventure franchise that spawned two sequels and a spin-off series in the form of the Scorpion King. With a new Mummy film set for 2017 starring Tom Cruise, the Invaders wanted to raid the tomb of these two Mummy movies and see which Imhotep is immortal and which one will crumble to dust.
