"The The Land of the Midnight Sun" would have been a better title for this one
22 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this greasy little movie over the weekend (thank you very much "Off Beat Cinema") and I was surprised to see that IMDb has the budget listed for this movie as being $16.000, I was guessing somewhere south of about $10.000, or even $5000. What the hell did they spend the other six grand on? The lead actor's hair gel? Maybe they should have invested in a spell-checker for the title.

A pair of alleged "teenagers" (who appear to be in their mid 20s, and seem like they're just reading their lines from cue cards) discover some sort of tennis shoe-wearing alien invasion while driving around in the dark/ broad daylight/ dark again one night(?), and the police don't believe them. Maybe if they would have told the cameraman to FOCUS the camera the police would believe them then? and the writers (Paul Fairman, Bob Gurney Jr., and Al Martin) might not have taken their names off of the credits?

IMDb lists this as being 80 minutes, but the version I saw was considerably shorter, probably only 65 or 70 minutes. But it was still a long 65 or 70 minutes.

Almost funny in a "so bad it's good" kind of way. Almost, but not quite.
