Brilliant movie
15 January 2002 | by (Abu Dhabi, UAE) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when I was a kid - I loved it and watched it at least 20 times from when I was 9 up to when I was 12, the video shop then changed hands to a big blockbuster type chain and they got rid of all the old movies whether popular or not.

A fantastic spoof that combined so many of the horror films of the 70's and 80's, the alien chest scene with the small lawnmower is one of my favs of the film.

If you like the spoof genre this is one of the best by far and a crime to miss
