Storyline

Spoof science fiction. An alien mother and her child are pursued across England by a bunch of incompetent government agents and take refuge in a house full of vampires. Homage back to the camp tone of British directors of the 1970's such as Ken Russell, (The Lair Of The White Worm), Robert Fuest, (Dr Phibes Rises Again), and Joe McGrath, (The Magic Christian). Distributed by Troma in the U.S., it contains violence, nudity and exploding bagpipes. Written by Anonymous

An extraordinary, largely 'one man', effort on a minimal budget.
28 November 2002 | by (Amersham, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is a unique vision, outside any genre placement; despite its' being ostensibly science fiction.

What might have been possible with a larger budget who knows, given that it uses CGI before that medium had been either properly defined or developed.

Perhaps large amounts of money wouldn't have been an answer, but there's no doubt it would have helped the film reach a larger audience.

It's been said often enough, but it's still true: Funding ten low budget films, giving new directors a chance, is more likely to reveal that elusive new vision than a single 'formula' blockbuster for the same money.
