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 ...

Movies From The "ID"!
17 October 2013 | by KissEnglishPastoSee all my reviews

........................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA...and ORLANDO, FL

If reading my "Summary" Phrase provokes a reaction (good or bad), brings back memories, or holds any special meaning for you, watching "Alien Trespass" undoubtedly will trigger the release of large quantities of DOPAMINE from your basal ganglia, prompting you to rate it 7* or higher. If you're clueless after reading my lead-in phrase, you should expect no more than 6*. Simple as that! So, if you're reading this solely to determine if you might like "Trespass" or not, "Mission Accomplished!"

Should you want or need more information, here it is:

For those of us who couldn't get enough of those schlocky 50's/early 60's "B" Sci-Fi/Horror flicks, "Trespass" serves up a laundry list of "B" movie conventions, in just the right sequence, duration, intensity and style:

The somewhat nerdy, but relatively good-looking astronomer/scientist, who warns of potential danger lurking behind every asteroid; his femme fatale Stepford-wife, whose libido seems 180 out of sync with his; the teenage couple parked on lover's lane who first encounter the alien monster, only to discover that no one will believe a word they say! Their apparently absolutely nothing in common "Cool Cat, Hey, Daddy-o" black leather jacketed best friend with all the good ideas; the "Let's-lock-up-all-those-crazy-juvenile-delinquent-punks!" local police chief; the reclusive drunken old codger and his Old Yeller look-alike dog, who live in the area adjacent to the crimson-glow crash-site; the resourceful, but desperate to land a husband, waitress from the local diner; and an only slightly digitally enhanced cheesy, tree stump tentacled Cyclops alien monster…among other elements!

I can offer up no rational explanation as to why the last 45 minutes had me mesmerized, other than that watching countless B movies in my youth seems to have hard-wired my brain to crave them! Be sure to watch the special features shorts, they're a real treat and will help you appreciate the film even more! Comparisons to 2004's "Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" are inevitable. Despite giving "Trespass" 8*, "Cadavra" I consider a unique 10* masterpiece, in a league all its own!....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!....KissEnglishPasto@Yahoo.com
