Empire's Regular Crew With an Alien War Story
29 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Italy, during World War II some American soldiers find an alien UFO.

We have the usual Empire crew here, with Charlie Band taking the lead. With him are Debra Dion, John Carl Buechler, Tim Thomerson and even Ted Nicoleau. The production was done in Italy with dozens of Italian crew members. Oh, Empire, you really knew how to make a good movie!

Directing this lost gem is Danny Bilson (who co-wrote it with his long-time writing partner Paul DeMeo), who Empire fans will know for "Trancers", others might know for "The Rocketeer", and those who do not know him may be more familiar with his daughter Rachel Bilson ("The O.C.").

Richard Band's score seems to blatantly rip off the "Imperial March" from "Star Wars", which seems all too appropriate (I mean, you know, Nazi soldiers were called storm troopers). Is it better than ripping off the theme from "Psycho" for "Re-Animator"? Maybe... maybe not.
