I watch terrible movies so you don't have to #18: Invisible Invaders
A vague nuclear accident reanimates corpses, but it's not as fun as it sounds. These corpses knock on doors, appear overly Brylcreemed, yak-yak-yak in long conversations explaining destruction of the Earth in 24 hours, and seem slightly threatening in an insurance salesman kind of way. Most of the movie's plot is forwarded through narration over excessive use of stock footage or using that old chestnut of showing made-up newspaper headlines that say stuff like, "Charges Of Space Attack Branded Ridiculous" or "Boring Movie Causes Localized Narcolepsy". For the briefest of moments, a crowd of over-dressed men are seen shuffling around in large groups, but it's hard to discern if they are in fact zombies or a convention of assistant high school principals on a bender.
