Roger and Doris live a quiet, comfortable life until one night they are awakened by the arrival of a strange visitor. It's a child--the answer to their dreams! A gift from heaven... or, from much farther away? The strange little thing takes over, wreaking havoc on the entire household. Life, as the couple knew it, is over. They're a family now, and it's a nightmare!

Anyone planning a family--take heed of this cautionary tale! Doomed parents will appreciate the terror of the couple's plight. Part science-fiction, part autobiography, Strange Invaders is another irrepressible comedy from Cordell Barker, director of the much-loved classic, The Cat Came Back, a 1989 Oscar nominee.
