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

Mar 27, 2018
If there ever were a film that represents the punk movement of the 1980's it is Alex Cox's Repo Man (1984)! It is irreverent, it is anti-establishment, and it is really weird! Otto (Emilio Estevez) a young punk music fan falls into the tense life a car repossessor. When a mysterious 1964 Chevy Malibu comes up with a large reward, Otto is drawn into a world full of conspiracies, men in black, aliens and an array of crazy characters. Repo Man is glorious chaos captured on film. It co-stars Harry Dean Stanton, Tracey Walter, Olivia Barash and Sy Richardson. Join Invasion of the Remake in our hunt for the killer, radioactive, Malibu as we rethink and remake the cult classic Repo Man!

They've quietly laid their plans to take this world from us. An alien force from the stars sets its sights on taking the Earth for their own purposes. But first they must eliminate the native species who may resist. That species is us!

H.G. Wells 1897 science-fiction classic The War of the Worlds has been adapted countless time for its thought provoking and chilling themes. Orson Welles Mercury Theatre radio program terrified a nation on October 30th, 1938 convincing a nation that a very real invasion was occurring. War of the Worlds would finally be brought to the screen for the first time in 1958 by famed producer George Pal and director Byron Haskins with stars Gene Barry and Ann Robinson. Several adaptions would be made over the years (sorry we can't cover them all) but none bigger than Steven Spielberg's survivor's of the invasion version from 2005 starring Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Tim Robbins and Justin Chatwin. Join us as we compare these two amazing films! We here at Invasion of the Remake may have a soft spot for aliens, but this week we stand with Earth, as we are on the front lines of the War of the Worlds!

There can be only one...unless you you make a lot of money in home video to spawn a franchise. Then there can be lots. This week our hosts, aka the Immortals of the Remake, investigate the urban fantasy classic Highlander (1986). The only fight club where every participant is immortal, battling to the last, with a swing of a sword and a fall of a head to win the "Prize". Conceived by Gregory Widen, directed by Russell Mulcahy, Connor MacLeod was first brought to the screen by Christopher Lambert alongside Sean Connery, Clancy Brown, and Roxanne Hart. With a remake/reboot looming in the future, Invasion of the Remake felt it time to revisit the world of Highlander with what they'd like to see in a remake complete with casting. Join us as we remake Highlander!

The roll of a mechanic should seem as natural as passing gas, silent but deadly. Arthur Bishop is an assassin that specializes in making his targets look like they've died from natural causes, aka The Mechanic. When Arthur's next target strikes a more personal cord he takes on a protégé that results in his world crumbling around him. Charles Bronson starred in the original action, thriller in 1972 along side Michael-Jan Vincent. Jason Statham became the new Arthur Bishop in 2011 starring in the remake with Ben Foster and Donald Sutherland. Which assassin is the deadliest and which one is just a fart in the wind? Listen to this week's Invasion of the Remake as Charles Bronson and Jason Statham go head to head as The Mechanic!
