Not A Soft Core Porn Film
21 October 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I got this movie confused with the similar sounding titled that starred Traci Lords . I noticed Ms Lords name was missing in the credits but I noticed someone called Ivory Ocean . I`m not being disrespectful but Ivory Ocean sounds like a revisionary porn name - Instead of using your first pets name and mother`s maiden name you use your favourite gem followed by your fave geographical feature , mine would be " Sapphire Forest " . So I sat back thinking this film might be a little bit naughty , but it`s not

NOT OF THIS WORLD is a B movie produced for television about a meteor shower bringing some wanted visitors to middle America . Okay it`s not like it was written by someone of the calibre of Nigel Kneale but considering it was produced for television it is entertaining in a B movie sort of way and there`s a scene set in some dark woods that reminded me of THE DUNWICH HORROR .

I give it 4 out of 10
