Editorial Reviews

Some students aren't exactly what they seem to be in DECOYS, a sci-fi/horror adventure starring KimPoirier (Dawn of the Dead), Richard Burgi (Starship Troopers 2), Corey Sevier (TV's North Shore ) and Nicole Eggert (TV's Baywatch ). If college coeds Lily and Constance look like two out-of-this-world blonde beauties, that's because they're actually intergalactic space invaders with a mission: to breed with humans before taking over the Earth. And even though the girls mating skills have proven fatal to their victims, they keep on trying. So when Luke, a hard-partying freshman, accidentallywitnesses the shapely shape-shifters in their full-bodied alien state, he knows it's up to him to save the planet before he truly gets wasted.

... and that's what DECOYS is.

If you look at it as a classic horror film, you'll be disappointed. DECOYS is definitely a tongue-in-cheek marriage of comedy and horror, unashamedly borrowing elements from films in both genres.

The real value of the DVD lies in the deleted scenes and bloopers, both of which fill in frustrating gaps in the plot and give a real sense of what the film was intended to be; funny, sometimes over the top, undeniably goofy -- sort of a horror version of Airplane!

It's a pity some of the deleted scenes included in the DVD didn't make it into the film, as they fill in some gaps in the story that otherwise leave you scratching your head. Richard (Det. Kirk) Burgi's scenes with Corey (Luke) Sevier and Lilly (Stephanie Von Pfetten) are delightfully goofy and fun and explain a whole lot about Kirk's behavior throughout the film.

The bloopers... here's where you see why the cast say they all had a blast making this film. Burgi and Sevier have to fight to maintain straight faces around each other, often just giving up and collapsing into gales of laughter. :-)

DECOYS is definitely one of the "your mileage may vary" DVDs, but if you enjoy Richard Burgi's work, grab it!

3.0 out of 5 stars These cheesy "decoys" want your soul!! September 12, 2004
Format:DVD
It's hard to keep up with all the movies being filmed in Canada nowadays. Back when I was a kid that was a major event for us film fans north of the border but these days low-budget sci-fi and action filmed in Canada is the norm. But would these American production companies ever dare to set the story in Canada? Rarely if ever. They'll pretend Toronto is NYC or Vancouver the American Northwest. Finally with "Decoys" we get a horror film from Canada, set in Canada and for Canada! While Decoys is not the most original horror film in existence and is not likely to make me forget the films of David Cronenberg anytime soon, it is still definitely a great way to spend an hour and a half. This one has chuckles and laughs aplenty!

The setting is St. John's college in Ottawa, a higher education institution where books are the day's calling and frat parties rule the night. Luke and Roger are a couple of freshmen with one-track minds whose missions are to score as many babes as possible. One night Luke meets a couple of blonde bombshells who live a few doors down from him. Luke is enamoured but also mystified since school has been in session for months yet he's never seen the two until now. While managing to sneak into the closet of their room and watching the two undress, he is horrified to see tentacles protruding from their back. It is clear to Luke that these two girls are anything but normal. And is it mere coincidence that their arrival on campus coincides with recent campus deaths where several male students were found frostbiten to death, their mouths wide open in a silent scream? Luke seems to be the only kid on campus who doesn't think so, strangely enough.

The director himself has referred to his film as "American Pie meets Species", a very apt description.

2.0 out of 5 stars Low budget - outperfromer AKA "here puppy...puppy" January 31, 2005
Format:DVD
Ever pick up a movie at your favorite local rental place, and just *KNOW* you are picking up low budget shlock? Ever decide, what the heck, I *WANT* to see this shlock? Other reviewers have likened it to "porkys", "species", "alien", etc... and there is a touch of all of that in this flick. This is canadian film, which considering its low-budgety look and feel wasn't THAT awful. The plot is VERY close to "species"... horny alien females invading earth to reproduce like made crazy. There were some good scenes, there were some awful scenes. There were story lines that went nowhere. (love interest between the protaganist and the female detective?) There wasn't any real plot twists and the special effects were "okay". But I'm getting annoyed by completely digitized creatures attacking Earth. I call it "attack of the pixels". (There's something to be said about the giant ugly snot infested rubber Jabba the Hutt over the crisp digital version that Lucas later dubbed in.. ya know?) If you've never seen any of the "species" movies, then this might be more entertaining for you than it was for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars T & Aliens May 31, 2005
Format:DVD
"Decoys" is a little flick from our neighbors to the north. It features a cast built up primarily of newcomers(at least to the U.S. audience)and some reasonably good special effects considering the budget.

The story centers around St. John's College(filmed at University of Ottawa) where a good chunk of the male population has started to come up missing or frozen from the inside out. No one knows what's happening to these guys until one curious male student stumbles upon a pair of sorority sister cousins with some interesting appendages. They lack belly buttons but have another surprise waiting for the boys in their unusual birthmarks. The story unfolds from there as the student, Luke Callahan, attempts to uncover the girls for what they really are and to find out why they are freezing any and every amorous boy that they can get their hands on. Of course, our hero becomes a suspect in the case, lead by an eager Canadian cop played by the recognizable Richard Burgi and his sidekick, the lovely but never quite a star, Nicole Eggert.

As stated before, the majority of this cast is comprised of newcomers excepting Burgi and Eggert. Also, look out for the guy who plays "Jay" on "Degrassi: The Next Generation." Another little surprise was the coroner, played with tongue-firmly-in-cheek by veteran soap star Don Hastings.

The FX are pretty good. The creatures look good in close-ups, but you can tell when a CGI model is used pretty easily.

The story isn't too terrible, but allow for the below-average acting and the sometimes hokey direction. It's obvious that the director was trying to keep things reasonably light, as attested to in the "Making Of" documentary included on the DVD.
