Storyline

When an old man witnesses a strange meteor land, he finds himself growing younger, but his renewed youth has a price; he must kill or die. He is a vampire, but it is not blood he needs to satisfy his cravings. A series of murders in which several women are brutally slain leads the police on a confusing chase across several states.

Imaginative science fiction/slasher......
7 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Arrival" has one great thing going for it, a highly imaginative script. An alien parasite from a meteor crash infests a 73 year old grandfather who after coming back from the near death infestation experience begins to rapidly grow younger. A side effect of this fountain of youth syndrome turns him into a killer, who regularly needs estrogen charged blood from female victims. The movie is surprisingly enjoyable for a low budget film. John Saxon, Michael J. Pollard, and Stuart Gordon, are used to good effect. Throw in some nudity, a lesbian love scene, some well placed humor, and all else can be forgiven. Not bad entertainment. - MERK
