Editorial Reviews

When a spacecraft crash-lands onto her barn, the owner of a small-town junkyard offers a cash reward to anyone who can kill her uninvited, space-suited alien guest. Every wacko within 100 miles turns out to kill the alien and claim the $100,000 reward: but it doesn’t take long for the junkyard to be transformed into a war zone of man vs. man vs. machine vs. alien. Starring Jeremy London (Mallrats), wrestling legend Roddy Piper (They Live), Cuyle Carvin (Assault Of The Sasquatch) and Adrienne LaValley.

Alien Opponent (2010) is a science fiction "slaughter comedy", where a profit minded group of alien hunters, are dispatched in a variety of ways, while attempting to claim a cash reward. The kills are probably the high points, as story is as solid as Jell-o, and characters are a strange bunch, with few who are likeable. The special effects aren't spectacular, but used judiciously, are generally effective, and mildly humorous.

Meghan Mazurski (Ashley Bates), a hot young blonde, is caught with her lover Bradan (Cuyle Carvin), by her husband Tom (Kevin Shea). When the old buzzard gets violent, Meghan's mom (Hilma Falkowski) slams a hammer into his skull, making her daughter a widow.

Events take place on rural junkyard, where an alien craft has apparently just crashed landed. Seeking to cover up the crime and inherit Mazurski's estate, the trio concocts a story that Meghan's hubby has been killed by an alien, and go on TV to offer a $100,000 reward, to anyone who can recover Tom body. This brings a flock of interested applicants to the salvage yard, including Paris (Jessica Alexandra Green) a waitress, Father Melluzo (Roddy Piper) a priest, Linnea (Adrienne LaValley) a dancer in a men's club, and Brooklyn Davis (Jeremy London), an all around slimeball.

The movie follows the activities of the enterprising reward seekers, as they wander through the property confronting alien worms, killer robots, and a large extraterrestrial, who resembles the Predator, and seems to get off on killing humans. Various "hunters" fall prey to the aliens, while others are murdered by other contestants. Meghan's mom decides to increase the pressure on the contestants, which leads to a falling out with her daughter in the kitchen.

This is a bad movie and doesn't pretend to be anything else. Think Attack of the Killer Tomatoes meets Shawn of the Dead. It is hysterical. If you want an Academy movie this isn't your schtick HOWEVER, if you want a blast of funny with aliens, rednecks, and ditzy blonds thrown in you will love this. If MST3K were still around it would be a strong candidate.

I had a wonderful time watching this goofy alien versus red necks film. The script is an original bending of bad Sci Fi drive in movies. It is gory and has some over the top, bad taste humor so I cannot recommend it to people with kids. The film is part grind house and part B movie spoof. No Oscars for the acting but the cast looked like they were having a great time. Every character is a stereo type but the film takes these folks and twists them into something interesting. There are some genuine laugh out loud moments in the movie. The body count is high. Most of the characters die in some unique and entertaining way. This is a really great rainy weekend film.

Alien Opponent is an action/sci-fi/comedy that is pretty stupid, but it does have its fun moments. There's some gore, a lot of violence (the body count is very high), and a cool alien. Unfortunately, the film has many problems. There is only one likeable character in this whole movie. All of the other characters are greedy backstabbers. Also, it ends up being more about characters killing each other than an alien killing them. I wanted to see this cool alien do some damage, but we don't really get to see as much of that as we get to see the greedy gusses killing each other. This is a pretty fun time, but it could been so much more.

Alien Opponent was made for the Chiller cable TV channel, and it's about as direct to cable/video as you can get. Shout Factory!, never one to shy away from presenting B and C-movie titles in it's best light, released a uncut version for all of us to enjoy. I use to term 'enjoy' subjectively, because I think you have to have a certain love for a certain kind of film to enjoy this. Alien Opponent is a blatant attempt at putting as much creative deaths as you can in one setting. It's a snuff film through and through. The plot is pedestrian and only there to give an excuse for the spectacle. The acting is.... well not really acting. More like adult pretend time. The special effects are low budget, but seem to be a positive highlight of the film in spite of that. If you like mindless mayhem and high body count this is your film.

The plot is ridiculous. A rich junk yard owner is killed by his wife. An alien crash lands into said junk yard and the wife devises a plot to blame the death on the alien and place a bounty on its head. So now all sorts of people.... ALL sorts... come running to claim the bounty, or more to the point die trying. When I say high body count I mean it. People are dying everywhere. It's not just your standard men and women getting slaughtered. Children are being cut to pieces and decapitated. Pet dogs' necks are being snapped. Nobody is safe. And the dying can come at you in so many ways. Land sharks, razor wires, killer slugs a la The Creeps, killer robots, flame throwers, hand tools, you name it. I can see this is a tongue in cheek level of violence, but it's still over the top for me and in poor taste.

The characters and acting are pretty much a throwaway. All the characters have issues and make it hard to root for anybody.
