Perhaps one of the worst horror movies ever!!
5 July 1999 | by WritnGuy-2See all my reviews

"Bloodsuckers from Outer Space" pretty much...SUCKED!! It was one of the worst movies ever. I think the worst part was the acting. That pretty much killed it all. The two "heroes"--a failing photographer and girl he meets somehow--are the least likable characters ever. And I always wished they would just die. But there was barely any action anyhow! Just a bunch of mindless drool. I'll admit it, I was only watching this with half my attention span. But believe me, you didn't need much to understand how bad this movie was!

The dialogue was some of the funniest. The photographer telling his human-turned-bloodsucker friend, "You're not getting any blood out of us." Or, when the two start physically fighting, when the girl turns and looks at the camera and says, "I can't take another kung-fu scene!" Then she runs downstairs and hits the friend's girlfriend. Also, when the two find that the guy's aunt and uncle are bloodsuckers, the aunt tells the girl, "I've got a recipe for spaghetti you'll just love." The way she says it had me laughing hysterically!

Also note--there were no deaths except for those who were turned into the creatures. Maybe a few army guys died, that's about it. And also, there is no specified reason why and how this all happened. But the way the guy's friends are turned into bloodsuckers is so funny. They're in the shower, and the curtain is somewhat see-through. They start screaming, and you see them literally throwing blood against the curtain from the bottom of the shower. To make it look like they're getting killed. It is so horrible!!

I don't think there really was a climax. I think the movie just sort of ended on an odd note. Like, everything was okay...or maybe not. One of those crappy endings. Please, avoid this movie AT ALL COSTS!! It is one the worst movies ever made! But if you need to see how bad it is, I say, rent it if you find it. You can laugh at the terrible acting.
