It's the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and Cecil Kaufman has planned to show four movies, which are so rare that they have never been exhibited publicly on American soil, until this very night.
The sensationalist reporter Michelle Fox presents the TV show Weird World, with phony matters about UFOS and aliens. When she hears about Cat, a young woman that claims that have been abducted with her boyfriend and become pregnant by aliens, she convinces her chief to travel with a team to the remote Welsh island of Scalled to interview Cat. She invites the cameraman Ricky Anderson with his sound technician partner; the nerd expert in "ufology" and "ley lines" Gavin Gorman; the actress Candy Vixen and an obscure gay actor to prepare the matter. They get a van and wait for the low tide to reach the island, and when they find evidences that aliens are really landed in the location, the ambitious Michelle decides to film her way to fame and wealth.Written by

R rated version is heavily cut for violence/gore and explicit sexual content and nudity.
Both R rated and Unrated version are available on the blu-ray release from Image Entertainment.

About thirty seconds into the film you'll find yourself with your jaw dropped somewhere down to around about your knees as it opens with a sequence so hideously disgusting you can't quite believe you are really seeing what you are seeing. Comparisons will doubtless be made between this film and Shaun of the Dead and also Peter Jackson's Brain Dead / Bad Taste neither really took things to such a painfully funny - quite beyond belief - level that this film does. Whilst the film will always be remembered (rightfully so) for the combine harvester scene - which is truly hilarious - it is so much more than an individual collection of gross out sketches - it is a wonderfully silly but engrossing yarn that doesn't let you go from the very first moment to the last, with visual effects - both prosthetic and CGI that quite literally first rate. Watch it be amazed be offended be thankful that the British film industry has some balls in it yet
