* MonumentalBattle: One of the first. Watching icons like the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building being trashed at the climax is on of the highlights of the film.

* WashingtonDCInvasion: The final battle takes place around major landmarks in the city. Notable for the amount of location filming around the Capitol Building and other locations, giving the tightly budgeted film a better look than your average B movie.

* WeComeInPeaceShootToKillWeComeInPeaceShootToKill: More or less. At least the saucers ''try'' to get the Earth to surrender peacefully before opening up the blasters.

* ThrownOutTheAirlock: Although they're not in space when it happens, the aliens murder several prisoners by throwing them from a flying saucer in retaliation.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Averted. The aliens have come to conquer Earth, but would prefer to negotiate terms rather than subdue our planet by force, which would mean governing a devastated world and its resentful population.
