Editorial Reviews

There's a hip new disc jockey at KDUL, Superstation 66, and he's about to make rock and roll history. He's Dangerous Dan O'Dare (Paul Hipp), the most controversial DJ to hit the airwaves and he's going to give his listeners the time of their life. Dangerous Dan is newly employed at KDUL after a six month suspension by the FCC for a stunt he pulled while on the air. He's changing the station's image and contents: from only polka music to a more lively rock and roll. Since he's always the jester, Dan is starting out with a bang. Covering the event for Cable World Network is Lisa Cummings (Martha Quinn) who doesn't trust Dan and thinks he's a hoax. She becomes the butt of his jokes when she spots a UFO landing near the radio station and Dan is quick to laugh until the alien breaks into KDUL. The alien is Cosmo who has developed quite a taste for rock and roll and beautiful young women. By using the airwaves at the station, Cosmo has found a new way to miniaturize and transport the people listening to the radio. His object is to collect a variety of women to take home to his planet and Dan O'Dare is the only witness! As hard as Dan tries to convince the listeners of what's happening, it all backfires as it appears to be another one of his jokes. When Lisa gets miniaturized, along with Cookie (Charlie Spradling) and two other women, she finally believes Dan and they discover the one thing that will stop the alien DJ and make the airwaves safe again.

If Roger Corman movies were rated PG, this is what we'd have--a goreless flick that favors comedy over horror, but still involves monsters abducting women.

Director Ted Nicolaou (Subspecies I-IV, Terror Vision) and writer/producer Charles Band (the Puppet Master, Subspecies, Ghoulies and Trancers franchises) have crafted some truly laughable comedy horror nonsense for us. In the spirit of Roger Corman, a presumably horny alien and his robot sidekick have come to Earth to steal our women and they're using a local radio station to do it. However, completely unlike Roger Corman, there is no nudity, no monster-human "mating" scenes, no gore, and all of the laughs are deliberate. In fact, I struggle to understand how this received an R rating.

You might be wondering how this works... Well, first off, everything has to be covered in other-worldly alien fungus...because that makes sense. Then the alien plays rock music over the air waves and makes attractive young radio fans dance like party girls starring in their own music video until they are miniaturized and teleported into his the alien's collection jars.

By the way, these music videos seem to be the true theme of this movie, because we are forced to watch each one in its entirety. They're not very good and they last several minutes each. But I laughed when the scenes cut between the dancing girls' perception of what's going on and the perception of those around them who just think they're nuts dancing like a loon on diner counter tops, during surgery or in the middle of high school band practice. Keep an eye out for the electric guitar-playing nun and the guy in the cow suit in one of the music videos.

A back country radio station is about to become the base of operations for a sinister alien being, who plans on using the airwaves to lure voluptuous young women into his evil clutches! How, exactly, does the alien go about collecting these women, you may ask? He transmits radio signals that make them envision themselves in a bad music video before they are shrunk down and teleported into tiny glass vials. Seems simple enough, right? Full Moon brings us another spaced out comedy in BAD CHANNELS, a silly spoof of the invasion movies of the 50s with 1980s sensibilities. Paul Hipp plays our wacky shock jock hero Dangerous Dan with plenty of enthusiasm, bringing life to what could have been an otherwise dull experience. The cleverness of the plot begins and ends with Dangerous Dan's Wellesian attempt to warn the public of their impending doom, then it is right back to rubber monsters and Grade-A cheese. SUBSPECIES director Ted Nicolaou sets the mood for a perfect B-Movie, but, in a fatal flaw, allows the awful music videos to take up more screen time than the alien action. Full Moon fans are sure to relish the droll humor in this goofy comedy, however.

Best full moon movie ever. I rented it on VHS when it first came out in 1992.
