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

Sep 14, 2016

It has 5 Academy Awards and boat loads of critical acclaim. It is on more must watch lists than we can count. So of course attempt to do the impossible by remaking Milos Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (1975). We might as well try to climb Mount Everest with our teeth. Who are we to think we can have a better cast than Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, Brad Dourif, Sidney Lassick, and William Redfield? Maybe we should be committed for even trying.

More importantly than trying to remake the film is discussing it. It should be talked about. It is still relevant today and we have a frank discussion about the film, and mental illness. Don't worry, we have some fun as well. It's what we do.

If you have your own suggestions of film classics that we should never ever touch please let us know on:

Hey wait...what happened to episode 50? Well we wanted to do a big movie that had been remade and it didn't fall into the schedule quite right. So being that we are on the frontline of the Invasion of the Remake we can also get creative with the order of the universe or at least our little corner of it. Next week will be episode #50 but for now we present to you our remaking of Hardware (1990)!

Richard Stanley's low budget science fiction, thriller brought some major themes of environmental collapse, over population, and more, disguised in survival horror. Starring Dylan McDermott, Stacey Travis, and John Lynch along with appearances by Lemmy and Iggy Pop! You can't stop progress, and you can't stop the Invasion of the Remake!

A young man named Alex Rogan is desperate to escape his small little world in the Starlight Starbright trailer park. His only escape is in the one arcade game at the trailer park, Starfighter. Alex had no idea this game would be the gateway to another life among the stars as a reluctant hero.

Invasion of the Remake goes back to a childhood favorite in The Last Starfighter (1984) rethinking it as a modern remake and how modern gaming might change this sci-fi, adventure film, while still considering the more personal elements that affect Alex's life. Strap yourselves into your Gunstars cause this one is going to be a blast of awesome!

Left alone to defend and ungrateful people, two men battle against the clock and the odds to prove there own self worth in two very different but thematically similar movies. Gary Cooper leads an all-star cast alongside Grace Kelly, Lloyd Bridges, Lee Van Cleef, and Lon Chaney Jr. in the Oscar winning western High Noon (1952). While Sean Connery heads to the third moon of Jupiter, Io, with Frances Sternhagen, Peter Boyle, James Sikking, and John Ratzenberger in the science fiction movie Outland (1981).

When the clock is ticking and the remakes are against you, you can always count on Invasion of the Remake to have your back. The Invaders put these two films into an old fashioned gunfight and only one can come out alive. Listen to this weeks episode to see which has the fastest draw.

Proving we are completely and utterly insane, we took on our very first Fan Challenge. The challenge was to just watch Hard Rock Zombies (1985) but since we are mad as hatters, we had to remake this low budget schlock fest. Cause that is how we roll. We went into this film with no preparation, we watched it, and hit record. This is the result.

Little did we know what we would be in for. Wheelchair bound werewolf? Check. Little mongoloid zombie who eats himself? Check. Hitler? Yup, check, it's got that too. Hard Rock Zombies is full of so much insane that we could never put it all in this intro. Listen to this hilarious podcast about about this so bad, it's still bad, horror, comedy that one of you, our fans, tortured us with. You're welcome.

"Release the Kraken!"

Those words were first shouted in 1981 in the now classic Desmond Davis film Clash of the Titans with effects by the incredible Ray Harryhausen. In 2010 Louis Leterrier remade Clash with modern effects to mixed reviews. Comedian Monty Scott joins the invasion team to see who would win in a fight, Harry Hamlin's Perseus versus Sam Worthington's Perseus, or Laurence Olivier's Zeus against Liam Neeson's Zeus. We pull out all our Greek mythology knowledge and take these two fantasy films to task the only way we know, in a Clash of the Titans!

Continuing our month long Fantasy Film June the Invaders remake an 80's fantasy classic. The highest grossing independent film of it's time, The Sword & the Sorcerer looked cool, but is a narrative mess with a great core idea. It's perfect for the Jason, Trish, & Sam to remake with today's audiences in mind.

The Sword & the Sorcerer starred Lee (Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) Horsley, Kathleen (Godfather Part II) Beller, Simon (Jaws 3-D) MacCorkindale, Richard (Halloween) Lynch, Richard (Night Court, House) Moll and directed by Albert Pyun. If that last name sounds familiar go back to listen to Ep.20 Remaking Cyborg where we take on another of Pyun's films.

Triple bladed swords, greedy tyrants, vengeful sorcerers, princesses in distress, pirate captains, dungeons, castles, this film has got it all and the kitchen sink. Don't miss this weeks episode, because it's going to be a wild ride.

In 1982 a retired body builder relatively new to acting got his big break as one of the the most iconic literary characters of all time. That character was Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, and that man was Arnold Schwarzenegger! Director John Milius co-wrote the script with Oliver Stone and had an all-star cast to support Arnold, like James Earl Jones, Max Von Sydow, Sandahl Bergman, and Mako. The movie is now considered a fantasy classic.

In 2011, after a failed sequel and many more failed attempts to get more Conan starring Arnold off the ground, a remake / re-imagining finally hit the big screen starring Jason Momoa, who, after a major role in HBO's Game of Thrones was no stranger to playing a barbarian. He was joined by Ron Pearlman, Rose McGowan, and Stephen Lang in this Marcus Nispel directed summer blockbuster. It didn't do so well...like really, really not well.

Richard Donner could do no wrong in the 1980's cultivating many hits like Lethal Weapon, The Goonies, Superman, Scrooged, and The Omen. In 1985 Donner directed Ladyhawke with Matthew Broderick, Rutger Hauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Leo McKern, John Wood, Ken Hutchison, and Alfred Molina. While loved and appreciated at the time, the film was not a hit and has become a largely forgotten romantic, fantasy classic. That's where the Invasion of the Remake hosts come in, because they think it is ripe for a remake! Download now to find out how they would do it and who they would cast in a potential Ladyhawke remake!

Two movies based on The Hunter by Donald E. Westlake under the pen name Richard Stark brought Westlake's most famous character, Parker, to the silver screen, but they wouldn't be actually called Parker. Westlake famously protected the character and the name Parker wouldn't be used until after his death when Jason Statham starred in a movie title after the titular character.

Point Blank (1967) with Lee Marvin starring as Walker/Parker in a very ethereal adaptation of the novel alongside Angie Dickinson, Keenan Wynn, Caroll O'Connor, and John Vernon was the first to adapt the novel, although now in a contemporary late 60's setting. Near the dawn of the millennium Mel Gibson would star in another contemporary take on the novel in Payback (1999) co-starring Gregg Henry, Maria Bello, David Paymer, Deborah Kara Unger, William Devane, Lucy Liu, Kris Kristofferson, and James Coburn.

While adapting the same material, these two films are very different. Invasion of the Remake is the only place where Lee Marvin will be fighting Mel Gibson to see which is the better Parker.

This episode is dedicated in the memory of Darwin Cooke who passed away only two days prior to the recording of this episode. He adapted many of the Parker novels into graphic novel form and did them with a passion for the character that may have only been rival to that of Westlake himself. He will be missed.

We don't ask for money for the podcast currently but if you enjoyed this episode donate a few bucks to the American or Canadian Cancer Society. In Darwin Cooke's own words "F*ck Cancer!", so let's help put an end to it. Thanks.

When an old god-monster is resurrected, a grieving family seeks to stop it before it kills everyone in the town. Clive Barker's short story from the Books of Blood, Rawhead Rex (1986) also became his first story to hit the silver screen and he hated it! This lead him to take a more controlling roll on the Hellraiser film. On this episode we take a look at what went wrong, how we might bring it back to the silver screen and do honor to the source material.

Breaking the goofy type-casting Keanu Reeves had fallen into from two Bill & Ted movies, he starred in his first action film, Point Break (1991) from Director Kathryn Bigelow. Co-starring Patrick Swayze, Gary Busey, and Lori Petty, Point Break became a cult hit of the 1990's. Flash forward to 2015 and a new take on the concept by Director Ericson Core and Screenwriter Kurt Wimmer starring Edgar Ramirez, Luke Bracey, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo. Strap on your parachutes as the Invaders pit these films against each other and see if a beloved original can still stand up and if a remake no one wanted can actually ride the wake of the original.

Long before his "tiger blood" drove him completely insane (allegedly), Charlie Sheen shot a low budget sci-fi, supernatural, revenge flick called The Wraith (1986) along side Nick Cassavetes, Sherilyn Fenn, Randy Quaid, and Clint Howard. Does this ghost with a really cool car hold up? This week the Invaders with comedian Brittany Lyseng are in the driver's seat and rework this movie to make it worthy of a remake...Invaders style.

Sean Connery is the original James Bond and after Diamonds are Forever he said he would never play Bond again. Never say never. Those are the words that became the title to the 1983 remake of Thunderball (1965), Never Say Never Again. The Invaders sneak into the files of MI-6 to see which of the Ian Fleming, Kevin McClory inspired stories can defeat the evil S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and is the best of 007.

The best thing about South Korean films is that they are really, really insane! Chan-wook Park brought the fan favorite manga to the big screen in 2003 with great success. Fast forward a decade and director Spike Lee remakes Oldboy for an English speaking audience starring Josh Brolin to mixed reviews. Often found on worst film remake lists, is the Spike Lee version really that bad? Listen to this weeks episode as we discus this tale of revenge, violence and incest!
