4.0 out of 5 stars Campy Matinee Monster Movie Fun! Recommended August 28, 2009
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
"Alien Trespass" is a fun spoof of the alien\monster movies that I used to watch on Saturday afternoons. There is nothing pretentious about this movie at all and it certainly captured all of the elements that made those movies so memorable today:

Stiff Acting ... Check
Cheesy Special Effects ... Check
Hip Kids in Cool Cars ... Check
Square Cops ... Check
Rubber Suite Monsters ... Check
Weird SciFi'ish Music ... Check

Well, I guess that's all that's needed, we have a 1950's monster movie.

No plot spoilers from me, and none are needed if you ever saw even one of those old movies, the movie is "actually" a 1957 Hollywood movie that never got released, as explained in a newsreel style format at the beginning. The main plot follows Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack), a mild mannered astronomer, as the small town experiences a wave of strange events and disappearances that seem to be related to a meteor crash in the desert. Character actors Robert Patrick and Dan Lauria are the local police, and Jody Thompson as Lana, Ted's wife. R.W. Goodwin (The X-Files) produced and directed the movie.

The cinematography was fairly good and I liked the use of oversaturated colors to give that 1950 feel. The music score was exactly what you would expect from this type of movie and really set the right tone. There was very little to take offence to in the movie besides some very vague suggestive remarks and one biological reference.

Overall, this was a fun movie that might be lost on younger viewers but was very enjoyable to me. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars LOOK TO THE SKIES August 11, 2009
Format:DVD
There is a certain member of movie fandom that loves old movies. And each genre has its own devotees. Classic musical fans love the MGM musicals. Horror fans the Universal classics. And science fiction fans love those bug eyed monsters invading earth from the stars. The film ALIEN TRESPASS pays homage to those films while placing a tongue firmly in cheek.

The story begins (in the extended version) with the grandson of the film's producer and the grandson of the film's star introducing the picture. Of course they carry on the fight that began with their grandfathers over the film and then allow it to begin. The film had been shelved for years and now they'd decided to release it.

The story begins with astronomer/professor Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack) watching the skies while cooking on the grill as a meteor shower begins. But when a large meteor lands nearby, he abandons his wife at home to investigate.

As we already know, the meteor was actually a spaceship crashing. And while we watch, an alien in space gear exits the ship and wanders about. When Lewis shows up, his mouth opens to scream but before we can hear the scene changes.

Cut to lovers lane where teens Dick and Penny are parked. They have seen the crash as well but think it was just a meteor. As Penny pushes away Dick's advances and encourages him to leave the area, they are confronted by a 6 foot tall, one eyed, tentacled creature. The care starts and they escape. But who to tell? No one will believe two teens in the 1950's.

The local police think it's all a prank when people begin missing and the teens tell their tale of a monster on the loose. But all the while Lewis, now possessed by the alien, hunts down this monster.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're Having Fun! But.... June 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay - why did I rate it so high?

Three reason;
#1 - It doesn't not intend, nor does it try, to take itself seriously. It is a 'serious' parody of the classic sci-fi films of the 40's, 50's and 60's. It made me smile many times and even laugh out loud at how many of the older films in this genre really did these gimicks. (And they WERE taking themselves very serious!)

#2 - It's colorful. Watching this farse of a parody makes the colors jump at you from the screen. The costumes, cars, sets, props and even the decore are all smack out of 50's Life Magazine. You can't help but look at everything in the frame.

#3 - Eric McCormack - Always a fan of his in the 'Will & Grace' TV show - I feel he was taking a very serious approach to the project. 'Playing' it as if it were real and being shot in the 50's. Playing a duel role - Im sure he had a greta time doing it.

In fact he did. How do I know - he told me at a pannel at the 2009 Comic Con convention for the Alien Tresspass assembly. Along with the director and orginal artwork from the film - they gave the information and great detail as to what went into it.

The story is simple: Aliens need humans for food. An alien policeman is defending Earth from invasion and he is in the form of a human he takes over (surprise!) - Eric McCormack. Of course he......well I don't want to ruin it for you!

I can appreciate the performances and the people on the production side very much, but watching made me look at some of the old classic films (Forbidden Planet, Them, The Fly, The Day The Earth Stood Still) and wonder - did they know what they were making at the time?

I liked it for its pure non-sensical form, mimicking style and bright colors. I think you will too. 6-8-10
