Weird, wacky and wild fun! Laugh out loud performances from George Wendt and Julie Brown in this sci-fi, dark comedy, western hybrid. (Leave it to Roger Corman!) I¹m a big fan of the b-film. And this is a shining example. We¹ve got aliens, blood, boobs, explosions, torture, sex, social satire and a ton of comedy (actually intentional!) Dave Payne seems to understand what type of film he¹s making and stays dead on track with the tone. The shoot out in the finale is a crafty take on every great western street show down. The witty camera work and ricochet action owes a lot to Sam Raimi¹s ³Quick and the Dead,² but director Dave Payne makes this movie his own. Michael McDonald (lately of Mad TV) wrote this sleeper hit.
