It's "Terry Fying!"
24 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

A seemingly ordinary flight is quickly and inexplicably cursed by blood red skies, a bomb threat and suicidal birds splattering themselves against the windows. As if this were not enough, a globular glow-in-the-dark UFO causes the plane to crash in an unoccupied and desolate area which looks suspiciously like the quarry where Fred Flinstone once worked. The survivors are soon faced with an alien invasion in the form of moldy cosmic silly putty. The slime takes over human hosts by oozing its way up over the face and into a gash opened in the hypnotized victims forehead...a gash which, even when closed up, rather resembles a vagina and gave me the uncontrollable giggles.

Anyway, the possessed human hosts go on vampiric killing sprees, draining their victims of blood and turning them a pleasant shade of blue. In the end, the dwindling survivors show their bravery and do battle with the nasty aliens, or become cowardly lumps of Jell-o and run away screaming. There's a lot of anti Vietnam War protesting throughout, complete with stock footage of wartime atrocities. It's a nice touch, considering the time in which this film was made and the unpopularity of anti-war protesting period. There's also a surprising twist ending which, for some reason, reminded me of Fulci's film "The Beyond" combined with "28 Days Later."

All in all, this is a goofy, badly dubbed and totally entertaining film to watch. If you're a fan of Japanese cinema, vampire films and sci-fi flying saucer invasions, you won't want to miss this one.
