Thoughts on... Xtro (1983)

19 February 2012 4:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Xtro, 1983.

Directed by Harry Bromley Davenport.

Starring Philip Sayer, Bernice Stegers, Danny Brainin, Maryam d'Abo and Simon Nash.


A father is abducted by aliens and returns to Earth three years later to try and reconnect with his family.

The release and subsequent success of Alien (1979) seemingly opened the door to mind-altering tales of horrific space invaders. Rejecting the notions of friendly aliens that directors such as Spielberg had put in place with films such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), it seemed apparent that audiences were eager to explore the vast reaches of space and face the ugly dark side of the moon. This bizarre British science fiction film almost found itself on the 1980s video nasties list, primarily due to one particularly controversial scene. Admittedly this is cheap, sleazy, exploitative filmmaking. However, it is also immensely enjoyable, and will undoubtedly appeal to connoisseurs of low-budget bad taste cinema. »
