After a mysterious, extraterrestrial object lands in the mining town of Salena, Arizona, the government dispatches a team of Marines to contain the possible threat. Meanwhile, a group of death row inmates ambush their prison bus and take the guards and personnel aboard hostage. Arriving in the seemingly deserted town, they come across the Special Ops captain, the sole survivor of a horrible carnage that's decimated the rest of his unit. Now, with time running out, the group must unite to combat the threat of the savage aliens hunting them in the mine tunnels below, and the peril above from a squad of fighter planes sent to bomb the town to oblivion, in this pulse-pounding, sci-fi thriller.

Flimsy Z-grade movie (as bad as it sounds)
13 May 2010 | by Samiam3See all my reviews

B-movies I can understand, but why to people made stuff as low as Alien Invasion Arizona? Definitely Z-grade material, I doubt if the makers even went to film school, or the cast to acting school. Films like this are probably made just for fun. This is what you get when you round up a dozen friends, rent a truck of gear with finance from some 'ma and pa' operation, get a locations permit, and maybe a hundred dollars worth of props/costumes from the halloween store. That is pretty cheap, and unless you know what you are doing, the result is gonna be pretty darn cheap.

A group of prisoners high jack the transport taking them to jail. They march their 'rookie cop' hostages to the nearest town, which is supposed to be a rendezvous. They find the place to be totally deserted, and next they find out why. a swarm of reptilian like aliens, have worked their way from under ground to the surface and have eaten every body. Now their next meal has walked into town.

The creatures in this film are the most rubbery I think I've seen since Roger Corman's Carnosaur trilogy. They were clearly designed based on the one in Ridley Scott's masterpiece, but they are not even a hundredth of the way to being as intimidating as that one.

There is no reason to see this film, which is why it has gotten no release. Long may it be that way.
