Yes, it's worse than Plan Nine...but it's fun !
12 August 2001 | by (mons, belgium) – See all my reviews

This movie is as bad as you want it ! Worse than "Plan Nine From Outer Space"...Worse than "Alien On Earth"...even worse than "Indepandence Day" ( yes, it's true )...But more funny than these three movies, too. There are lot of killer stuff in this one : a lot of gay scientist in pink uniform, some very fat dancing queen ( remember Divine ? ), some very gorgeous but silly female alien in platform boots, some incredibly bad acting, and, of course, a giant MOUSAKA ! Yes, a MOUSAKA. It's a kind of parody of the Blob but you can never tell if the director wants to make a normal serious thing or not. Some dialogues :"This moonlight looks like a sunrise" ; "The Z-Movies strikes back" or the explanations of the origins of the monsters ( with some words you only heard in "Star Trek" ) are really devastating. The theater was totally FULL ( with 30 minutes of queue ! )when I saw it. You laugh almost all the time ( only the end is a bit too much ! ) but it's something that must be seen to be true !
