Alien Trespass

Wednesday, December 02, 2009
Alien Trespass"It came from another galaxy. A creeping, crawling nightmare of terror!" (Complete with music reminsicent of the original Star Trek series.) It is, in fact, as the tagline for this movie says, "Terror — the whole family can enjoy."

"It's 1957," says the blurb, "a spaceship has just landed in a quiet small town, and Earth is suddenly threatened by an unknown evil. But fear not, hope has also arrived."

Alien Trespass — directed by The X-Files's R. W. Goodwin and starring Eric McCormack (of Will & Grace fame), Jenni Baird, Dan Lauria, and Robert Patrick — is a modern movie done in the tradition of The Blob (1958) and It Came from Outer Space (1953). It's a fun-filled, "creepy" romp into the past that wholly captures the flavour of films from that era.

The San Francisco Chronicle called it, "Retro-escapist fun." Box Office said, "Loads of fun, a highly entertaining retro sci-fi blast from the past." And the New York Post wrote, "Beautifully captures the look of the genre."

As the old cliché goes, "They don't make 'em like they used to."
