this was a movie?
23 December 2002 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

this stunk. It is about a group of really wretched actors being killed by a alien after a space ship crashes. After the first 3 minutes, you will recognize this as a Fred Olen Ray movie. The creature effects are OK, but pretty much your post-ALIEN rip-off. The sound and picture quality is terrible, and the script screams mediocre. Awful.
