For Athena Massey fans only
26 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Adding its name to the roster of films who have lifted their cheesy space scenes from the ancient BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, this film need not have bothered with the plagiarism. The STAR PORTAL core plot has no need of any space scenes whatsoever. It is basically a vampire/alien-on-earth movie, where the only original device is that the vampire is not only a protagonist but also an ingenue love interest. As for the latter, while the sex scenes are tame, there is plenty of mammary exposure by Athena Massey, who, while quite comely, does not need any special makeup effects to demonstrate that she is portraying a silicon-based lifeform, if you know what I mean.

Stephen Bauer performs competently as a goodhearted physician, but he irritatingly drifts into the commonly-observed sci fi film character who cannot believe that aliens are among us, even after repeated and exhaustive observations of behaviors that are supernatural or technologically impossible. Can someone that dumb get into medical school? As a physician myself, I find the implication rather off-putting.
