"Plan 9.5 from Outer Space"

Film: Invisible Invaders (1959)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Remember those intergalactic imbeciles who thought that zombies were the key to world domination? Well now a new race is trying it out! But these folks seem to have their own idea as to how it's done. And it isn't pretty.

History: This alien race allegedly wiped out all life on the moon about 200 centuries ago before colonizing it alongside many other planets in the universe. Along the line, they learned that they had the power to turn invisible so that no being could know of their existence if they were to invade again. And invade again they did. On Earth, that is. At first apathetic to our technological inferiority, they have taken notice of the Atomic Age, and would see it fit to bring our advancement to a screeching halt. To infiltrate society, they took over the bodies of the dead rather than resurrect them to wander aimlessly.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After the humans figure out the alien's weakness (see that section for more info), they literally turn it into a gun, kill some aliens with it, and then tell the rest of the government about it. End of invasion, better luck next time.

Powers/Abilities: As well as radioactive invisibility, the aliens are very resilient, and can mimic the forms of the dead.

Weakness: High-frequency sound causes the aliens to turn visible and die from the sheer power of it all.

Scariness Factor: 4-The real forms of the invaders are slightly grotesque (and oddly familiar), and their plan would have gone off without a hitch had we not known their weakness. Lots of effort to be seen here.

Trivia: -As with "The Mole People", actor John Agar once again plays a charmless know-it-all in this film. Oh, joy.

-This is the fourth science fiction film made by Platinum Pictures.

And with that, the prototype gun causes more havoc than good.

Suprisingly, this poster is half-truth, half-lie.

Yep. We're doomed.

The first host chosen.

So, how was the nap?

"I am a shadow...the true self."
Yes, I'm sure that gun will stop the INCOMING TSUNAMI!

Those aren't zombies. Those are just the people who saw Jupiter Ascending.

"This just in! Turns out, I'm dead!"
