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!

This week we talk about one of Trish's favourite subjects, SHARKS! Specifically those that have terrified us in the movies and on television. Jaws terrified and kicked off the summer blockbuster but also created a horror subgenre of it's own, that of the killer shark, and the recent sharksploitation explosion that gave us The Asylum and it's Sharnado franchise. We talk about 3-headed sharks, snow sharks, dinosaur sharks, sand sharks, ghost sharks, zombie sharks and every insane idea we could find and come up with a few ideas of our own. Also hear some of our true life shark tales on this very toothy episode of Invasion of the Remake. No shark cage required.

This week we can remember it for you..for free! Douglas Quaid dreams of a beautiful woman, another world and another life in Total Recall. Loosely based on the Philip K. Dick story "We Can Remember it For You Wholesale" Director Paul Verhoeven takes Arnold Schwarzenegger from Earth to Mars alongside Sharon Stone, Michael Ironside, and Ronny Cox. Although maybe that was the dream Verhoeven had in 1990 and Director Len Wiseman's 2012 remake is the real deal. There is no Mars, but Colin Farrell, Kate Bekinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho, and Bill Nighy will take you on a wild ride from one end of the planet to the other. Was it the vacation of a lifetime or did it all really happen for Quaid? Invasion of the Remake will try to find the answers for these sci-fi, action films in this week's episode.

Remaking a John Hughes classic coming of age comedy like Weird Science (1985) is no easy task. It is probably easier to conjure a hot date out of junk laying around the studio. Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith certainly make it look easy to create a gorgeous, near omnipotent, Kelly LeBrock out of thin air. Thanks to the advanced technology and intellect here on the Invasion mothership we have the ability to remake this fun 80's film because we are Invasion of the Remake!

This week we have violent, sex & drug addicted, anthropomorphic animals starring in our third fan challenge. They are staging a variety show, in the vein of The Muppet Show, but with a lot more puss, blood, and Vietnam flashbacks. This pre Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson manages to create a sick & twisted world full of insanity on a miniscule budget. It's easy to see the birth of Jackson's attention to detail that has permeated throughout his career. There are almost to many characters, with there interesting quirks, addictions, and homicidal thoughts, to discuss in one podcast. But Invasion of the Remake is up to the challenge as we remake Meet the Feebles (1989)!

LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED but this is a fan challenge so you brought this upon yourselves. No puppet shall get out alive!

The cops can't catch them. The FBI can't catch them. Can a cab driver? This Luc Besson scripted action, comedy was scripted in 30 days while waiting for a studio to give the go ahead on The Fifth Element. Under the direction of Gérard Pirès Taxi (1998) spawned 3 more sequels in France. The success of Taxi brought it to the attention of American film makers and Taxi was remade in 2004 (aka New York Taxi) by Tim Story and starring Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon. Invasion of the Remake pays the fair, goes for a ride, and sees which film takes us to our destination without puking.

Saint Patrick's Day is just around the corner and Invasion of the Remake put on their green shirts, following the rainbow to the pot of gold at the end of it. Shame about the surly leprechaun who wanted to disembowel us. This week we take a look at the first of the Leprechaun (1993) films, the one that started the horror franchise. It was Trimark's first film release and it was Jennifer Aniston's film debut. With so many firsts there had to be some nuggets of a good idea and the Invaders make those nuggets of gold with their patented remake treatment. Grab a green beer and enjoy this week's Invasion of the Remake!

Roberts, Anjelica Huston, John Matuszak, Ron Pearlman, and Bruce Vilanch. How will they improve it? Who will they cast in there remake? Download this week's episode to find out.

Grab some chimichangas and champagne and join Invasion of the Remake as we predict the future Oscar winners and some Oscar drinking rules as well!

We're not angry prophets denouncing the hypocrisy of our times, well Trish might be, but we do know an amazing film when we see it. Network (1976) did however eerily predict what news media would eventually evolve into. Was it satire transcending into reality, or a very savvy futurist in writer Paddy Chayefsky? This film was a warning, well regarded in it's Oscar winning performances, but a warning that fell on deaf ears. Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch, and Robert Duvall star in one of the most important films (directed by Sidney Lumet) of any generation.

With certain politicians denouncing serious impartial news sites as "fake news" in favor of more sensational slanted news sources Invasion of the Remake feels this film is more relevant than ever before. Join us this week as we climb Mount Everest, attempt to do the impossible, and remake an almost perfect film with our own "award winning" fantasy casting. What better way to celebrate Oscar season than with Invasion of the Remake!

It's that time again. February. Love is in the air. Declarations of peoples feelings happen in the form of flowers, cards, and boxes filled with internal organs. Welcome to Valentine Bluffs (1981) and Harmony (2009), two small mining towns and murder capitals of America. Invasion of the Remake was brave enough to enter there worlds to see whose Harry Warden is the more efficient killer.

My Bloody Valentine (1981) was created to capitalize on the holiday slasher craze that was popular at the time. It was directed by George Mihalka and starred Paul Kelman, Lori Hallier, Neil Affleck, and Keith Knight. 28 years later, at the forefront of the remake craze, was My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009) directed by Patrick Lussier and starring Jensen Ackles (on a rare release from the prison called Supernatural), Jaime King, Kerr Smith, and Tom Atkins.

We present to you with our deepest affection, this heart shaped box containing a still beating bloody heart that oddly resembles a podcast. Won't you be our Valentine?

Going back to a simpler time where a man could stake his claim, and his fortunes on the land, Invasion of the Remake hits the open plains to find gold in remaking the Lee Marvin & Clint Eastwood western, Paint Your Wagon. A film that may have been made before it's time, but maybe with a fresh coat of Invader coloured paint we can get this wagon rolling for a new audience. Oh, we forgot to mention it's a musical. Yup. Lee Marvin. Clint Eastwood. That totally happened. Crazy. Movies!

Coming from the twisted mind of Ed Wood comes what many call the worst movie ever. Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) is a beautiful mess of a movie and it was bound to happen someone would think to remake the film which features a deceased Bela Lugosi. Writer, Director, and actor John Johnson would take this piecemealed film and decoded it into something more cohesive and make sense of the mind that was Ed Wood 58 years later. The original film that is so bad, it's good gets the Invasion of the Remake treatment this week. It's going to be hilarious, don't you dare miss this one.

It's the year 2024 and the world has been devastated by nuclear war. Humanity scrounges for the necessities of life. Vic and his dog Blood share a psychic link that help them survive as they rely on each others senses and instincts to find food, shelter, and women. It's a post-apocalyptic, science fiction, sex comedy from the mind of Harlan Ellison and L. Q. Jones starring Don Johnson, Jason Robards, Susanne Benton, Tim McIntire as the voice of Blood.

Join Jason, Trish and Sam (who birthday picked this one) as they remake a film that inspired the wasteland genre and for which the Fallout video game franchise would not exist. This one is going to be crazy!

2016 was a strange year. It marked changes in the world that border on cautious to down right scary. It took many beloved celebrities onto the next life. It also marked 52 amazing new episodes of the Invasion of the Remake Podcast. Jason, Sam and Trish take a trip down memory lane of past episodes how the year treated them. We are also joined by special guest 2016, yes the year herself, to defend herself and comment on her time as the year just past. Much like the movies we cover, the Invaders are once again divided on the year that was 2016.

As is our tradition we're taking the week off to be with our families but don't want to leave you empty eared. This year we obliterate another Christmas classic in 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, which has been cleverly re-written with an Invader's twist by our very own Trish Cochlan and read by Jason, Sam and Trish. Enjoy. We'll be back next week, next year, with a brand new episode. Cheers!

The 99% becomes the 1% and the 1% becomes the 99% in a comedy classic about seeing how the other half lives. Trading Places (1983) stars Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd, Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Paul Gleason and yes, fits our holiday theme criteria because we like to stay festive here on the Mothership. Join the Invasion of the Remake Podcast in discussing the financial themed comedy and remaking it in a strikingly similar, but very different modern world where the divide between the rich and the poor is greater than ever. Don't worry, we bring the funny too. Lots and lots of funny.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Fictitious Festivus, and a wonderful Life Day if you live on Kashyyyk.

When you make a Christmas film whose message is against the commercialization of Christmas, the one thing you shouldn't do is fill it with a bunch of gratuitous advertising. Also, if you are trying to right a ship that has gone very wrong with Superman III and Supergirl, you may not want to hire the same director as one of those flops for your next big budget idea. Sadly, that's exactly what Alexander and Ilya Salkind did with the big budget Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) starring Dudley Moore, John Lithgow, David Huddleston, and Burgess Meredith. Despite a whole lot of wrong, the film has since gone on to become a holiday favorite and cult classic. It's so bad, it's good.

But we think we can do it better. We rethink the plot, shave some things off, add a lot more, and recast it. We also tease what a David Cronenberg version of the film might look like. Leave it to the Invasion of the Remake podcast to turn a sweet holiday film into your worst nightmare. Hilarious!

'Tis the season to be stabby, fa la la la la la la la.

Killing sorority girls in there jammies, fa la la la la la la la.

Somebody put that tune in the next remake! This week we focus on Canadian horror classic Black Christmas (1974) directed by Bob Clark of Porky's fame and starring Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, John Saxon, Marian Waldman, and Andrea Martin. Does the 2006 remake by Glen Morgan stand up against it? The all-star cast in Michelle Trachtenberg, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lacey Chabert, Katie Cassidy, Kristen Cloke and a returning Andrea Martin certainly give it all the reason to have great success. Or does it crash and burn in a flaming Christmas tree of death and destruction that claims the souls of all who see it? Maybe somewhere in between. Only one way to find out and that's by listening to this week's amazing Invasion of the Remake podcast!

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.

In salute to the late, great Gene Wilder we present to you, our loyal Invaders, the first of two episodes saluting the comic genius that was Gene Wilder. This week we take a look at Haunted Honeymoon (1986), Gene's least successful film marking his the only time he would take the director's chair. What went wrong? What went right? How can we resurrect this dark house horror comedy for a new generation. We give Haunted Honeymoon the Invasion of the Remake podcast make-over and it looks hilarious. Don't you dare miss it!
