Trivia

Although the title is a play on words of the Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, the film itself is not a spoof of the Spielberg classic. See more »

Quotes

Radio DJ: Yet more reported sightings today of these mystical lights in the sky. And not only that, not only that, a 76 year old man is claiming that aliens have been in touch with him via his alarm clock radio, warning him of an invasion none the less. Well if it came via the radio, it must be true!

Funny little movie
16 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A guy alone in his flat keeps getting warning signals from outer-space about an alien invasion. And along with a wise cracking radio DJ his suspicions grow until one night aliens invade the earth - tiny little aliens, which the guy ends up treading on and squashing without realising.

Perhaps a little long for what seems to be a punchline film. But this is a funny and well crafted little gem. The editing and sound design at the end is true genius. The special effects are old in fashion, presumably as a homage to the old style sci-fi films this is paying tribute to.

This film made me laugh at the time and I still chuckle to myself about it every so often. I wish there was more opportunity to see shorts like this one.
