Storyline

A science fiction vampire movie. The Vampire is an emissary from an embattled world near destruction who teleports to Earth to see if they can live here. He finds that our blood is nourishing and that at least one source of it is a steady stream of transfusions. He hypnotizes a Dr. to provide them and has his blond nurse move in to administer them.

Traci Lords is Not Of This Earth (and out of this world!!!)
7 February 2010 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

An alien race, dying from radiation in their blood, send an emissary to Earth to find out if transfusions of human plasma might be a cure for their affliction; if the plan is a success, the aliens intend to launch a full scale invasion and harvest the human race for their life giving juices.

As I have stated before, Jim Wynorksi might not be much of a director, but he sure knows his stuff when it comes to bimbos, and wisely opts to fill his films with busty babes. In Not Of This Earth, a trashy remake of Roger Corman's 1957 sci-fi classic, good old Jim surpasses himself by giving my favourite adult movie star Traci Lords her first non-porn role as a nurse employed by the alien to perform regular blood transfusions; with her scorching, curvaceous bod, magnificent pout, and surprisingly decent acting skills, blonde sexpot Lords turns an otherwise very humdrum sci-fi flick into an eminently watchable affair.

Of course, this being a Wynorski feature, which really is only a step up from porn anyway, Traci still gets to regularly show us her goods: she gets nekkid for a bathroom scene, saunters round a pool in a teeny blue bikini, wears several other very revealing outfits, and indulges in a spot of (non explicit) rumpy pumpy. Also adding to the T&A tally are Rebecca Perle as a big breasted alien, Becky LeBeau as a big breasted strippogram, and Roxanne Kernohan, Ava Cadell and Cynthia Thompson as big breasted hookers. Big breasted B-movie scream queens Monique Gabrielle and Kelli Maroney also make brief appearances, but both keep their tops on.

In addition to all the boobs, there is some hokey sci-fi action featuring cheapo special effects, a little bit of poorly executed murder and mystery, and some unintentionally funny extraterrestrial dialogue, but honestly, who really gives a damn about any of that rubbish with all that quality skin on show?

4 out of 10 for the film, plus 3 more points for a naked Traci.
