Storyline

The story begins in 1957 in the star-filled skies above California's Mojave Desert. It is a special night for noted astronomer Ted Lewis, who is preparing a special dinner for his beautiful, adoring wife Lana to celebrate their wedding anniversary. In another part of town, Tammy, a waitress at small local diner with big plans for the future, looks out her window and is excited to see a shooting star, which she takes as a good sign for her dreams. But, what Dr. Lewis and Tammy assume is a shooting star, is really an alien spaceship. The fiery ball hurtles toward earth and crash-lands on a butte in the desert. The only witnesses are teens Dick and Penny who are necking in a nearby lover's lane. A tall, metallic alien named Urp emerges from the craft unharmed, alarmed to discover that the monstrous Ghota, who was also on board, has escaped. The menacing one-eyed creature's unquenchable appetite could mean the end of civilization as we know it. Urp is the only one who knows how to stop ...

A Perfect 50s Time Warp
1 April 2009 | by StevenPaigeSee all my reviews

As someone raised on those Grade B 50s sci-fi movies, I was delighted to be treated to one more. The movie is a love poem to the genre. Unlike contemporary sci-fi monster thrillers, which rely on unreasonably graphic gore and violence, this movie finds its feet in story and pathos. The characters are memorable, the special effects are sublimely imperfect, even the monster has an endearing quality in its hokeyness. The film captures the hopes, dreams, angst and fears of the 50s, and evokes not as much nostalgia but perspective. The film is not satire, for the characters believe in themselves and their peril as seriously as we believe in ours. Neither is it comedy, despite some truly funny moments. My sense is the actors had a whale of a good time in their roles. Although humanity is indeed threatened in Alien Trespass, we see that the essence of humanity extends far beyond our own solar system.
