SequelQuest Rewind | A Spaced Invaders Sequel | EP86

Prepare to laugh, Earth Scum! In 1990 Touchstone Pictures invaded movie theaters with Spaced Invaders, a family comedy starring Ariana Richards with out of this world ambitions. An eclectic crew of Martians arrive in small town Illinois thinking they are part of conquering force, but soon realize the transmission they heard was just a Halloween night broadcast of Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds radio broadcast. Hijinks ensue.

Prepare to laugh, Earth Scum! In 1990 Touchstone Pictures invaded movie theaters with Spaced Invaders, a family comedy starring Ariana Richards with out of this world ambitions. An eclectic crew of Martians arrive in small town Illinois thinking they are part of conquering force, but soon realize the transmission they heard was just a Halloween night broadcast of Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds radio broadcast. Hijinks ensue.

The film was a mainstay of video store shelves in the 90s, but failed to blow up the box office upon it’s release. Now, nearly 30 years later, the SequelQuest crew thinks they are up to the challenge of creating a viable Spaced Invaders 2 with the help of a very special guest.

Join Adam, Jeff and Jeramy as they are piloted by romance author and sci-fi fan, “Commander” Sue London (www.bysuelondon.com) through the goofy fun and frantic action of this cult Halloween film in order to imagine a Spaced Invaders sequel. Discover the secrets of the Martian home world. Swoon at the budding romance between a special effects artist and a frisbee champion. And what does Howard The Duck have to do with all of this? Listen now and find out!
