C. Thomas Howell,
An alien from a race dying of a disease crashes on Earth and assumes the body of a human. She then precedes to take blood from other humans to send back to her planet. Things get complicated when she starts to feel human emotions and other aliens show up to exterminate her. Her only hope lies with a curious and helpful doctor.Written by
I just finished watching Star Portal less than five minutes ago, and as Athena Massey says, "I needed to contact my people". This is not a great film, but as a film that keeps you interested in what will happen next, it is a good film. It's from one of Roger Corman's companies (footage from Battle Beyond the Stars is once again "borrowed" to pad one of his sci-fi movies out), and has some plot elements in common with Not of This Earth. Athena Massey is very enjoyable in the role of the alien that comes to Earth accidently and must live on the blood of humans in order to survive. Steven Bauer plays the doctor who falls in love with her. Some of the dialogue is pretty stupid, but the fact that Massey talks like someone who doesn't have the best grip on the English language makes for a lot of the movie's humor. Worth a watch.
