Oh... did I give anything away? And...
- the Kulku sure look like human beings (except they never seem to smile).
- the chief Kulku blood harvester looks like one of those diabolic mad scientists, with a Germanesque accent.
- Dr. Chase went to a great university, because he must have taken "fly an alien spaceship and land it on Earth without anyone needing to show him how to do it and land on the exact spot his friends are standing" 101. I missed this course in the catalog!
- this technologically advanced race of Kulku harvest the blood essence and, to deliver it to the sled that propels it through a wormhole back to their home planet, spray it through... shower nozzles (you will recognize them). That, I am certain, is a critical step in the process!
I could go on, but it gives me a headache. Very forgettable movie... I hope.
Yes, that's actual dialogue from this movie.
I dunno, I hope for more from my science fiction than this; the special effects are not good, contrary to some of the other reviewers; the plot weak, the science ridiculous, and even the insight into the human condition--what so much science fiction is really about--totally missing. So, really, the only reason to watch it is if you are totally bored, for some of the action sequences. But you can do better, much better.
Sometime in the not-so-distant future the Kulku aliens arrive in need of 8 million humans' blood to cure a deadly disease that is killing off their race. The United States has to provide 800,000 people, however, with 300,000 to go a scientist's daughter is among the chosen to be handed over to be turned into "blood supplies." The father, subsequently, embarks on a lame adventure to rescue his "baby girl."
The movie starts off interestingly enough and then it's downhill from then on. Don't look for the movie to pick up; it doesn't. The setting, the plot, the dialogues, the special effects, and the music are all way below average.
In a nutshell, Alien Siege is definitely not a movie you would want to add to your collection, but it might provide for an evening's entertainment if intoxicated and/or in a silly mood.

Wooden acting and a predictable plot make this a complete yawner. The basic premise that aliens for some reason must harvest humans has been done before and done better.Published on April 11, 2012 by James
I saw this movie on SciFi. It caught my eye and I ended up watching it through to the end. It wasn't a truly horrible film but there were things that could have been done better.Published on May 16, 2009 by Bailey A. Crumpton
