Strange things can happen to people suffering from sleep deprivation, poor hand/eye coordination, slower cognitive abilities, hallucinations, paranoia, and possibly teaming up with the very killer you were supposed to catch. In episode 89 of the podcast that never sleeps, we watched Norwegian crime film Insomnia (1997) starring Stellan Skarsgård, and the Christopher Nolan 2002 remake starring Oscar winning actors Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank. There's no time to nap, when there is another episode of Invasion of the Remake!

A young man tries to get a fresh start and a new life by traveling to the great city from his small village, but the great city has problems of its own in the monster known as the Jabberwocky. Terry Gilliam makes his solo directorial debut with Jabberwocky (1977) and brings along Michael Palin and Terry Jones for that Monty Python-esque flavoring. Jabberwocky is a tongue-in-cheek fairy tail where the fairy tail happens by accident. This week Invasion of the Remake takes a look at this medieval comedy and rethinks it for a theoretical remake. What would that look like? Subscribe now to find out for yourselves!

Mother's Day is upon us and what better way to celebrate than with two films about psychopathic mothers and the children who love them. First up is Mother's Day (1980) directed by Charles Kaufman, brother of Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma Films. It stars Tiana Pierce, Nancy Hendrickson, and Deborah Luce as a trio of girls out for an annual party weekend, but only to find a sadistic family that wants to torture them. Actress Beatrice Pons and her loyal but evil children played by Michael McCleery and Frederick Coffin round out this cult favorite.

Mother's Day (2010) directed by Saw franchise favorite Darren Lynn Bousman has an all-star cast in Jaime King, Shawn Ashmore, Briana Evigan, Patrick John Flueger, Warren Kole and Rebecca De Mornay as Mother! Does the remake pale in the light of the original or does it hold a standard as to what remakes can be? Join the Invaders as we salute the women who raised us, and horror these cinematic mothers brought to the silver screen.

In Victorian England, Sir Hugo Cunningham is seeking the secrets of life and death. In his research he discovers the means to capture the spirit of death, The Asphyx, and hold it indefinitely. In effect, becoming immortal. But immortality comes at a great cost. This is the crux of The Asphyx (1972, aka The Horror of Death), a small studio homage to the classic Hammer Films of the 60's and 70's. Don't worry, we'd never heard of it either, and it was kind of awesome. The Asphyx is exactly the kind of film Invasion of the Remake likes to discuss, rethink, and in effect, remake for today's audiences. So please join Jason, Sam, and Trish as they look into the forgotten gothic horror film, The Asphyx!
