Even action/sci-fi has it's own layer of b, c and z films that some people had the joyful experience of renting or buying back in the rental store days of yore. You know that this isn't going to be a fully budgeted alien flick, and yet you want to get your un-washed hands on it to see what the hell that large woman-terminator thing on the cover has to do with anything anyway. Curiosity gets the best of us sometimes, and giving in is always a great choice. You never know what's going to be burned on that disc or tape. And what you get with Alienator is sort of a cat-and-mouse type of flick where a convict from another planet gets loose from prison, escapes in a ship and crash-lands here on beautiful blue earth. A group of the most cliched teens ever finds him in their cabin and they try to figure out who he is and where he came from. Of course there's a couple of bumbling brothers that are always hunting random animals all the time. Then the female recon unit shows up to bring the convict back (or kill him) and all hell breaks loose. It even says it on the cover of the VHS. The gunfights, lasers, explosions and everything else in that vein makes up for a decently paced setup because in a film like Alienator, that's really all were looking for. Shit to go
Of course, Fred Olen Ray had something to do with this.
Yeah, kick him in the nuts!
I was distracted too.... breasts....
It's death row. Those scumbags get what they deserve.
Lamest laser pistols ever.
Intergalactic slugs in the face!
Every alien escaping their problems comes to earth. Sound familiar?
No amount of make-up is going to fix your goblin of a girlfriend.
A stiff drink is always the answer.
Well doc, now you need a doc. Better call that burn unit. Human toast needs butter or else it will dry out.
"So, Kol-do you know E.T.?"
Alienator is fun in that popcorn, t.v. party sort of way where whenever you watch it you just can't help yourself but have a blast. Everyone in the room understands that the movie is bad, but you watch it anyway to poke fun at it, and that's the beautiful angle that Alienator sits at. Weird costumes, flying green lasers, terrible dialogue, dumb characters, a female body builder that plays an alien that could pass as some WWE reject. This encompasses everything you could possibly desire in a film that goes great with pizza and beer. The easiest way to find this in physical form is to just buy the four pack from shout factory!. And there is a blu-ray coming out soon as well if you dig this that much, but that just means you need to spend more money on pizza and beer, and there's really no need for that.
