Third Time Wasn't the Charm
30 October 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Galaxy Invader (1985)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A spaceship crashes in a small rural town and pretty soon a green alien is stalking the streets. A bunch of rednecks decide it's a good idea to try and capture it so that they can make some quick cash.

The third time wasn't the charm for director Don Dohler. He broke into the business with THE ALIEN FACTOR, which was about an spaceship crashing in a small town and doing damage. He remade that film a few years later as NIGHTBEAST, which was about a spaceship crashing in a small town and an alien doing damage. As you can tell, THE GALAXY INVADER is pretty much the same thing but it's not nearly as entertaining as the previous two films.

It's funny to see that the director would basically make the same film three times within a seven years period. He would actually make ALIEN FACTOR 2 later in his career so I find it interesting to see the same person doing the same film so many times. THis here is probably the weakest of the original three because it basically takes away all the good stuff that made the first two films work.

What is missing here? Well, there's the nudity that adds to the sleaze factor. This movie is also missing all of the violence and gore. This here is basically a watered down version of the first two movies and it's just not fun at all. I'm not sure if this stuff was cut out because of budget issues but it certainly hurt the movie and there's really no point in watching this when you've got the same movie out there in two better versions.
