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

Maybe I'll just have to stick to giallo and Japanese horror for my thrills.
I'm sure many will adore this and I think I am just too old for a bunch of guys and gals running around like juveniles, swearing a lot to show they are not, and endeavouring to squirt as much gooey stuff about themselves as possible. Maybe this whole anal thing never did appeal but clearly it has its fans and I cannot deny that this is well made. The effects are in the main very good, the film moves along pretty well (even if to nowhere in particular) and the action direction is excellent. There were things I liked like the combined harvester, the banana skin, the girls with guns and some of the gritty detail, but a lot was spoiled by too little attention to performance particulars. There is a fine scene where one sexy pair triumph spectacularly over a group of aliens, using all manner of farmyard implements found in the barn. At the end, however, with a stunning close up of the dishevelled female dripping blood, she is heard to utter, 'That was really awesome man' about as believably as my Gran. There is no doubt for all my reservations that Mr West is assured of a successful film career - he has a good eye, a sense of pace and a sense of humour. Maybe I'll just have to stick to giallo and Japanese horror for my thrills.
