A rare treat
19 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Aliens disguised as wrestlers cause a ruckus in this rare treat of a film. I don't call this film a rare treat because it was any good, I call it a rare treat because I must be one of the few people who actually paid to see it in its four-walled theatrical run at the Patterson theater in Baltimore, Maryland. While the film was in production, I saw TV commercials enticing people to pay to go to the Civic Center to watch the excitement of them filming the wrestling scenes. Those who have been on a set know that the "excitement" of watching someone filming a movie lasts only a few minutes. I wasn't there, but I heard the crowd got quite irate! Needless to say, I was anxious to see the film when it came out. I thought it would be bad, and it didn't disappoint. Sadly, it was a little too bad. So bad, in fact, that it was one of the very few films I walked out of at a theater. I think the other two were Robert Altman's "Vincent and Theo," which was bad in a whole different way, and the X-Rated "Blonde Emmanuele in 3-D." (I'm a 3-D fan, but I didn't need to see THAT coming at me!)

Despite its ineptness, I would like to see this film again. With the tons of material flooding the DVD market, one would hope this would find a distributor. Fans of campy bad movies would definitely enjoy it.
