Storyline

In the year 1000, aliens from the planet Quetzalcoatl flee their dying planet and take refuge under the Earth's surface. Disturbed by 1950s American atomic testing, the aliens strike back at the USA in such varied schemes as the replicant Castro, the psychic vampire regime in Grenada and the Allende plot to alter the Earth's axis. Only covert action by the CIA can stop the dreaded Quetzals. Written by Erik Gregersen <erik@astro.as.utexas.edu>

Brilliant
17 May 2013 | by conymercaSee all my reviews

A wonderful and peculiarly disturbing movie, with Baldwin's patented quick cuts, pop culture mashup, and political commentary filtered through a science-fiction conceit that has achieved a grotesque and influential life in the real world.

By the end, the viewer's head is spinning and laughter is undercut with questions of just what one does and doesn't know about the history of our time. A spin on conspiracy theory thinking that has evidently spawned its owned flock of conspiracy theories.

Hasn't anyone yet shown that this was the inspiration for David Icke's insane second career?
