A Wink And A Nod To 50s Sci-Fi Flicks..., 14 March 2010
Author: fwomp from United States

Yes, it's a 50s camp movie. But it's so much more than that. The contrasts are sharply drawn when you take notice of the fact that this is a homage to 50s sci-fi flicks but filmed in high-def. Similar to Quentin Tarantino's GRINDHOUSE series homage to the blood-and-guts films of the 70s, ALIEN TRESPASS pulls no punches in letting us see "the cheese" that accompanied these campy movies from 60 years past.

And the homage doesn't just stop at the style of the film. Many references to 50s flicks come up. Most notable is THE BLOB, where we've got a collection of people in a theater (trapped!) where an alien attack is about to take place (most sci-fi buffs will see this coming a mile away, but it's still cool to watch).

The great thing, too, about Alien Trespass is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. The main character Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack, DEAD LIKE ME) gets "inhabited" by the spirit of an alien who's ship crashed. This alien's name is (wait for it) ...Urp. And he's an intergalactic marshal. And he has a shoot out with a deputy. Any of this ringing a bell? Think "Earp".

With tongues firmly in their cheeks, but playing it straight, the entire cast really pulled in a very fun movie to watch. Even the interviews on the DVDs are done in such a way that we're led to believe these new actors are family members of the "original" actors who starred in the supposedly destroyed film, Alien Trespass. Yes, there's a documentary-style film-within-a-film, even before the actual movie begins. Kind of like the way TROPIC THUNDER started but bent more toward the appropriate era here.

I also enjoyed the overt sexuality simmering beneath the surface for Ted and his cleavage-enhanced wife, Lana (Jody Thompson). But there's no physical sexuality seen and only the great fade-to-black shots we were all used to seeing whenever something tasty was about to happen between men and women during films of the 50s.

If you were a fan of 50s camp-flicks (particularly COMMANDO CODY: SKY MARSHAL OF THE UNIVERSE), you definitely have to see this one.
