Invasion of the Mind Sappers based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The popular English cartoonist behind the critically lauded WAY OUT STRIPS invades America's shores with a disquieting meditation on teenage fantasy in the tradition of arthouse movie hits HEAVENLY CREATURES and THE MIRACLE. Dai, Helen and Ivan are convinced that the earthquake that rocked their hometown was caused by a crashlanding U.F.O., and that their temporary headmaster is its sole survivor. Are they right or is the truth even stranger? Swain's brutally honest depiction of small-town life and her powerfully forthright graphic style create a bruising, harrowing masterwork.
