Editorial Reviews

Fresh veggies on aisle 1. Fresh kills throughout the store. Something terrible is happening at Hastings Market. Something bloody. Something deadly. Something inhuman. And caught up in the grisly horror inside the market are shoppers turned hostages, unearthly alien terrors…and a dedicated commando band of raiders on a search-and-destroy mission to stop the intruders dead cold no matter where they hide. From Raw Feed, creators of the Rest Stop and Otis shockers, comes the sci-fi/horror tale Alien Raiders, a nerve-shredding battle for human survival against aliens that invade our world by invading our bodies. Be alert. Beware. Be afraid. The creatures next host could be your neighbor. Your kid brother. No its you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Title, Great Movie February 10, 2009
Moderately scaled indie film, but really quite excellent. Just pretend the title doesn't exist. Tape over it with your own, more clever title. But it's a very tight script; the "robbers" from the beginning have a sordid history that unviels throughout the film, but you're only told what you need to know to enjoy the movie and wonder about these people. The action is tastefully full of gore, but rarely does the movie hold too long on the squishiness. And there's no UFO, ignore the cover, but there are aliens.

Anyway, it's a solid 85 minute romp, and I'm really glad I saw it. It plays on some cliches, flips over others. Tis a good time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Got Your Shopping List? March 12, 2009
Verified Purchase
Wow! Finally! I have found a new sci-fi/horror that isn't lousy. And let me tell you, with all the junk coming out lately, it wasn't easy. I took a chance on this one and was rewarded with a film that manages to combine just about everything in the genre and explain it all at the same time. The film is fast paced, the special effects are good and you don't have someone telling you what has happened. You pick it up in bits and pieces and put them together. A bunch of robbers hit a supermarket and start picking off customers by having one of the robbers touch them. They happen to come in just as the detective of the local police department is leaving. The robbers don't want money and turn out not to be robbers after all. They are a group of self-made commandos looking for someone (or thing) in particular. That's it. I can't go any further without spoiling the film. It's an Independent Film with a good cast and comes at a great price. Get it - You'll enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop Reading Now and Watch this Movie April 12, 2009
Don't be put off by the terrible title and stupid DVD cover, "Alien Raiders" is a taut well-done thriller, but the less you know about it the better, so your best bet is to not read anything else on this page and just watch it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alien Invasion Thriller That Keeps You Interested November 5, 2013
I have to agree with other reviewers. Alien Raiders is a lame title that hardly lends itself to what this movie is about. Now that we have that out of the way what about the movie itself? It's a different take on the alien invasion genre, and that's what makes this movie so unique and entertaining. Its not a perfect film, but it can't be denied that this movie will make you get into whats going on and keep you held through the conclusion. This is the kind of film making that you don't see so much from a direct to video production. It's worth checking out if you are into sci-fi thrillers with a taste of horror.

Alien Raiders is about a group of normal people who have become alien hunters. They narrow down their search to a small town grocery store and go in like psychopaths taking hostages. From here the story unfolds. The aliens they hunt take over human bodies, so figuring out which ones are humans and which are aliens can be tricky without help. That's essentially where the story gets you to. You have a set of hostages and the hunters have to figure out which ones are the aliens. The themes have that paranoid feel of movies like Invasion of the Body Snatchers or The Thing. The approach they take on this theme is what sets it apart. From the beginning of the film you don't know what's going on. As the story progresses you start to know a little more. The plot continues to feed you tiny nuggets of background story and plot progression. In the end you have one parts thriller, one part mystery, and one part horror film with all the speculation and wondering about who and what that makes this kind of film good.

The movie may not keep you at the edge of your seat, but it does keep you interested. I don't think Alien Raiders was made to be an intense thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten horror classic! July 20, 2012
By Mike9kb
This is a great forgotten movie. So forgotten that not even be release on Blu-ray. In the tradition of The Thing [Blu-ray], this movie take you on a dark journey to kill the ultimate terror on earth, a Alien parasite who is about to escape from the only people who know it exist. Four hunter have the mission to stopped but first they have to survive two enemies. The aliens and the police authorities of a small town name Buck Lake. This DVD is packed with a lot of action and great special features: 3 making of the movie and a couple of lost tape that explain the alien and the aftermath of the end of the movie. Great movie for those who love The Thing (Blu-ray/DVD) and Aliens [Blu-ray].

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem Among Garbage April 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
How many horrendous sci-fi movies have I waded through. But even a blind hog will eventually find an acorn. This movie is great. Never heard of any of the actors? Doesn't matter. They are all fabulous. This is serious stuff. No tongue in cheek but pure suspense and terror. Reminds me of The Hidden.

Who would have produced such a great movie and given it such a stupid name!!

Buy it blind. You won't be disappointed.
