More fun than Neverland
24 October 2005 | by ejrjrSee all my reviews

This is a real gem from writer/director Rick Sloane who wrote and directed Hobgoblins and the six-part Vice Academy series. Sloane is a B-Movie wizard who made quality 35mm films for little money. Visitants was first released during 1989 and far outshines earlier genre exploitation films by Roger Corman. I guess plot matters but an inane premise mixed with zippy dialogue in this sci-fi comedy will put many smiles on your face. Some sets were originally constructed for a Michael Jackson music video and add good production value. If you just want some good old fashion fun entertainment, then I highly recommend searching for this rare treat. As of November 2005, it had not been released on DVD.
