The invaders: Genesis

boxftd6aedae15-61ee-4068-8e3f-ffd4fe9da577_1-f0a17abce63ce0c62f8535033f82caadIt’s another cheesy videotape wonder, with production value straight off of the set of a soap opera,so why am I so intrigued? The story is essentially about an area controlled by martial law, with portions  closed off to protect citizens against the war and raiders of the regions beyond… except they might not actually be in as much danger as it seems – the criminals might not actually be criminals, and our hero – one of the soldiers,  is beginning to question everything.

It’s a strangely compelling story, with genuinely good form – the army men actually look extremely good with convincing guns and military fatigues. The production values, as I mentioned are more like a soap opera shot on tape yet the story is compelling enough to really keep me on the edge of my seat. The subtitle Genesis indicates that there might be more episodes/films – I actually hope so I’d like to explore this world and the story just a bit more. A definite buy in my book, and now I’m off to see if I can find any more of these.
