Editorial Reviews

It's a double dose of alien terror! Three years after the disappearance of Sam Phillips (Philip Sayer), his young son Tony (Brazil's Simon Nash) pines for daddy's return when mom Rachel (Macabre's Bernice Stegers) takes up with another man. The fractured household, which also includes a sexy babysitter (Bond girl Maryam d'Abo), is further upset when Sam mysteriously returns -- and has a nasty habit of attacking local residents and seeping mysterious fluids from his wrist. Despite his father's menacing behavior, Tony continues to idolize him...even after he realizes dad might not even be human at all. Then the siege from the stars continues in Xtro 2 as Jan-Michael Vincent heads a group of isolated survivors trapped and fighting against time to fight off a relentless force from another world! A grisly, fast-paced blend of sci-fi thrills and gut-churning horror!

Xtro (1983) When Tony grows up, he's going to be just like Daddy!

Co-written and directed by Harry Bromley Davenport (Xtro II: The Second Encounter, Xtro 3: Watch the Skies), the film features Philip Sayer (Slayground), Bernice Stegers (Sky Bandits), Danny Brainin ("John and Yoko: A Love Story"), Simon Nash (Brazil), and former Bond girl Maryam d'Abo (The Living Daylights, Timelock), in her cinematic debut (hers and her `twins').

As this English production begins we see a cottage in the countryside, and a man playing with his son in the yard. Shortly after the mother leaves, the skies turn dark, the wind picks up, strange lights appear overhead, and poof! the man is gone...fast forward three years...the boy, named Tony (Nash), who lives in the city with his mother Rachel (Stegers) and her boyfriend Joe (Brainin), still has nightmares about the event, one which no one believes happens, as the thought is his father, Sam (Sayer), just picked up and left, never to return. Until now. Once again some strange lights cruise the night, depositing something in the area where Sam disappears so long ago...something nasty. The creature finds an unwilling participate in a bizarre mating ritual (an extraterrestrial shagfest), which results in one of the more repulsive scenes in the movie as Sam makes his grand entrance (if you've seen the movie, you know what I mean). Sam then `arranges' a ride to the city for an awkward reunion of sorts with his family, bearing a gift for his son. Tensions rise as Rachael doesn't know what to make of her supposedly amnesiac husband, and Joe distrusts him completely, thinking his intentions are to try and pick up where he left off.

the original film seemed to have something different which sets it apart from the B horror genre. the special effects were great, a couple of disturbing scenes (the birth!), and mystery... i didn't know where exactly the film was going. because it was such a well-done, low budget British scifi/horror movie, Xtro reminded me a bit of Hellraiser. definitely worth seeing.

Xtro II started out great; the main premise is about exploring parallel dimensions. however, once the movie really got started, it went downhill from there. cliche after cliche, cheap looking effects, the acting was uniformly poor... the style and tone of Xtro II was nothing like the original. aside from the title, there was virtually nothing connecting them. yes, disappointing.

my recommendation is to buy it for Xtro (by itself, i'd give it 4 stars) and watch Xtro II (alone, i'd give it 2 stars) because it came with this DVD set.

I give it five stars because of the scary introduction. It would have been best to keep the alien theme throughout the entire movie but there was this weird section of the film where killer clowns become the a child's "alter-ego"? I don't know. After the clowns the film picked up and it had a great ending. The monster effects and the alien cocoon in the bathtub was very well done. Great stuff!!

I love low budget movies but this one has little in the way of plot. It's hard to enjoy without that. It does have some gross effects though and is strangely engrossing as you try to find a plot. I have given lower budget flicks higher ratings but I can't say the plot situation is a good one. The dvd looks pretty good though and you get two movies here.
