Can I take My shirt off?!
14 November 2002 | by jim bowieSee all my reviews

Those who have seen this incredibly bad movie know what the one line summary is referring too. The incredibly cheesy sex scene between the sheriff and the deputey. I mean it is dumb, just like the rest of this garbage. Admittedly, the opening credits with the laser blast's are kind of cool (I'm guessing that's where all the money went). The acting is bad. The gore is flat out stupid. The alien is a guy in a thite shirt with a cheap mask and gorilla hands that you buy at a novelty store. Oh and the music, You know that sound that those big flexi straws make when you twirl them up in the air? That is exactly what the music sounds like!!! And what is up with this stupid subplot with "drago" dumb dumb dumb. It is good for a cheap laugh, but that's about all. I warn everybody against renting or buying anyhting with the paragon home video name on it. This is not the worst. The criminally bad "Boarding house" is. But I'll write a review for that piece of horse crap later. Oh, go ahead and rent it if your so d*mn curious, you'll regret it though.
