Pure incompetent CRAP from the 80's...I loved it!
30 May 2006 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

I fell in love with the two-line plot description on the back of the DVD-cover and I simply had to see it because it sounded like THE stupidest low-budget production of the entire 80's decade! Dig this: "When an alien is forced to crash-land his ship on the earth's surface, he finds himself relentlessly pursued by a bunch of drunken rednecks." How cool is that? It sounds like all Science Fiction movies involving extraterrestrial life ever made before, only…the complete opposite! Writer/director Don Dohler delivers exactly what he promises and makes "The Galaxy Invader" a rather entertaining experience as long as you can tolerate amateurish acting performances, completely unconvincing special effects and meaningless dialogs that are extremely poorly written. There is indeed a lonely alien, looking an awful lot like the creature from the black lagoon, on the loose in the forests of Baltimore and the yokels at the local bar decide to hunt it down so they can sell it to the highest bidder. Especially the stereotypical portrayal of the local idiots is downright hilarious! These men chase their disobedient 25-year-old daughters with shotguns; always carry around at least two cans of Budweiser everywhere they go and wear filthy & torn up shirts. The hunting sequences (filmed at night) are embarrassingly poor and the ending – filmed by Dohler like it's some sort of heroic battle – is too stupid for words. The title is pretty misleading, as the green-suited alien doesn't do much invading and he certainly doesn't look very menacing with his minuscule gun and complementary crystal ball. Even according to TV-standards, this totally fails as Sci-Fi picture, but it guaranteed to make laugh out loud!
