Storyline

Humanity lives in fear of an alien invasion: for the first time in history, a coded message from outer space has reached planet Earth. A few months later, the 12,000 residents of Sepulveda vanish. Authorities immediately quarantine the area, a free zone where drug trafficking and illicit sex were the most common businesses. When strange magnetic phenomena are observed, military authorities grudgingly concede the possibility of an alien offensive, and send professor Larsen -a renowned astrophysicist specialized in UFOs- to lead a quick investigation in the ghost town.

Graal quest: finding the worst
4 October 2006 | by Alexis-IMDBSee all my reviews

If you are, like me, addicted to the perverted pleasure of watching very very bad movies, don't miss that one. Everything is pathetic. Everything. What is fascinating in that kind of masterpiece is: - "Is it on purpose?", - "How did they get the money to do that?", - "What was the satanic deal that made the actors get trapped?" - "Are they insane?", - "Am I insane enjoying this?".

I've just been a bit deceived by Féodor Atkine who seems to be interested in his role ans played eventually quite well...

If you want to pull Tcheky Karyo or Julie Delpy's leg, don't hesitate: talk about "les Miller merveilles de l'univers".

Beowulf, my favorite worst movie, has found its master.
