Storyline

A civilization on a distant planet has found a way to solve its garbage problem: turning it into energy and beaming it into outer space. A flaw in this system is found when the signal is accidentally picked up on Earth by the Putterman Family's home satellite dish. While this would ordinarily be just another mess, this particular transmission contains a hungry trash monster who quickly begins snacking on the Puttermans and their guests. Only young Sherman Putterman has any clue what is going on, but nobody will believe him. Is there any hope for the Earth? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

terror-vision music

well, i saw some comment's on the film's music. the band who wrote and performed all the themes are an l.a "art" punk band called: "the Fibonaccis", the movie soundtrack is almost impossible to get. those fibonaccis guys are really one of it's kind, play some strange mixture of lounge and punk music, with obvious 50's, 60's retro, like the movie itself. and for the movie, i just love it, light, cheesy entertainment, with lot's of weird stuff and a monster who ate'em all. it is just plain simple and clear that this is intended bad taste. and unlike some other "the worst the better" trash flicks, this one just works great. o.d character is kicking ass, and the "this is food, this is rocknroll" scenes are over the top. the set that in this case is the family's house is a mess, in a good way of course. it seems like the movie is being taken in some futuristic period of time, with a sixties mood in it. a world where everyone is in to party's, late t.v, and cooool cars.
