Mathew St. Patrick,
After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.
The story begins in 1957 in the star-filled skies above California's Mojave Desert. It is a special night for noted astronomer Ted Lewis, who is preparing a special dinner for his beautiful, adoring wife Lana to celebrate their wedding anniversary. In another part of town, Tammy, a waitress at small local diner with big plans for the future, looks out her window and is excited to see a shooting star, which she takes as a good sign for her dreams. But, what Dr. Lewis and Tammy assume is a shooting star, is really an alien spaceship. The fiery ball hurtles toward earth and crash-lands on a butte in the desert. The only witnesses are teens Dick and Penny who are necking in a nearby lover's lane. A tall, metallic alien named Urp emerges from the craft unharmed, alarmed to discover that the monstrous Ghota, who was also on board, has escaped.

When Tammy (Jenni Baird) passes Ted Lewis / Urp (Eric McCormack) walking on the shoulder of the road while she is driving the pick-up truck you can see through the rear window that there is nobody where Ted should be. See more »
Do you remember: It Came From Outer Space, War of the Worlds, The Blob and Invasion of the Body Snatchers? If you liked these classic 50's Sci-Fi movies, then you'll love Alien Trespass. It's a smartly written terror/mystery/comedy that is completely true to the 50's Sci-Fi style . . . and it's also in color! When I was a kid I went to see all these movies and unfortunately most of them were not that great. Then starting in the 70's people began making retro versions with the same disappointing results. Alien Trespass is the first and only really well crafted retro Sci-Fi movie I've ever seen - I've waited a long time for this one. They claim that it's a 'lost classic' stored for 50 years. I think they could be right!
