Trivia

The prop of the crucifix switchblade was never completed in time for the shoot, so FX artist Ben Chester fashioned one on the spot. Sometimes the blade was taped to the handle and sometimes it was CGI. See more »

Hilarious and funny alien comedy
2 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

After a spaceship crash lands in their junkyard, the owners offer up a reward to whoever will kill it, leading every person in town to enter the territory to attempt to take it down but finding the job far more difficult than they imagined.

This was an admittedly cheesy and goofy entry, which is quite a bit of fun overall. It turned out far more funny than it is scary (and a strong case can be made than it's not supposed to be a horror film anyway) but the high level of gore and rather fun action scenes are a joy to watch either way, especially with the junkyard setting proving to be quite useful in generating plenty of thrilling stalking scenes and numerous confrontations with the alien. The kills get pretty gruesome, leading to a lot of bloodshed, and that comes about from the high body count which is rather nice, and with the hunting and stalking scenes taking up a large majority of the time, it makes for some pretty entertaining scenarios. Some of the humor does fall a little flat, but the energy and momentum make up for that somewhat, giving this one a really enjoyable and sometimes demented feel.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Nudity.
