"[A] respectful homage to mid-20th-century B movies....[With a] bright, saturated, anti-CGI look..." -- Grade: B+
Box Office - 04/03/2009 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] highly entertaining retro Sci-fi blast from the past that is loads of fun, an endearing tribute to all those bad movies we just loved....[The actors'] sweet, believable approach to the stilted dialogue is just right and natural enough to keep us involved."
It's 1957, and the world is in danger of being taken over by aliens! A horrifying extraterrestrial called the Ghota wants to wipe mankind off the face of the earth, and the fate of all humanity lies in the hands of a kind alien, Urp, and the human body he possesses. This throwback to 1950s B-movies features a cast of familiar faces from film and TV, including Eric McCormack (WILL & GRACE), Robert Patrick (THE X-FILES), and Dan Lauria (THE WONDER YEARS).
Beware, earthlings. From The X Files' R.W. Goodwin comes a new cult classic in the tradition of The Blob and It Came from Outer Space. It's 1957, a spaceship has just landed in a quiet small town, and Earth is threatened by an unknown evil. But fear not, hope also has arrived. Will & Grace's Eric McCormack stars as an astronomer possessed by an alien bent on saving our humble planet. Yet even with the help of a diner waitress, is he any match for the Ghota, a rogue alien on a murderous rampage'
