Invaders (2014) – Thanksgiving Spirit Comes Home

InvadersTomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the States. Let’s face it… there really aren’t all that many horror flicks that revolve around this particular holiday. Luckily director Jason Kupfer reached out to me the other day to share his short film Invaders (2014).

SPOILER ALERT: This review WILL talk openly about the plot of this short film (which will be shown in its entirety below).  If you’ve not watched it yet, scroll down, check it out and then come on back.

Invaders Synopsis

A pair of home invaders consider their potential character choices just prior to t heir planned invasion.

Plot, Thoughts & Recomendation

Invaders opens with a family preparing for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We pan outside to two men preparing to invade / rob the home. They go through a rather hilarious discussion about what masks to wear (think Pulp Fiction meets a Kevin Smith flick). Things really pick up speed and get SUPER bloody when the Dad opens the door. His reaction is a bit over the top but it’s awesome. From there the comedy of this dark comedy really kicks in. I won’t bother going into much more of a plot synopsis here for a six minute film as you can watch it and make your own opinion.

This is a great little short film. It’s a Thanksgiving film the same way that Die Hard is a Christmas film… which is so say it totally is. The blood here isn’t all that realistic but it’s not supposed to be. There’s some great and realistic looking gore toward the end if the fake stuff doesn’t scratch that itch for you. If you’re a horror fan looking for something to watch this Thanksgiving season give Invaders a watch. You’ll be glad you did.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III.
