Storyline

Bavaria in the late fifties. Someday the life of Maria, a young girl, changes all of a sudden when she finds the body of a woman. The scientist Dr. Robert Hoelzlein and the American Captain John Welles, deployed in Bavaria, are commissioned to solve the apparently obvious murder case. But trouble seems inevitable, as both are interested in beautiful Maria. From now on horrible discoveries of dead women increase in the neighborhood as well as mysterious sightings of unidentified flying objects spread fear and mistrust among the villagers. While inspecting a crop circle the Captain finds a dead alien and during an autopsy the scientist comes to a terrifying conclusion. Too late he discovers the connection between the corpses and the UFOs. Before he can alert the population the undead aliens rise from their tombs underneath the crop circles to extinguish humanity. Will Robert and John overcome their rivalry and finally kick some alien-zombie ass? Written by Anonymous

Bad movie with hilarious accents...
22 December 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

My infinite search for anything just remotely zombie-related brought me to this movie. And I have seen my share of questionable zombie movies, but "Zombies From Outer Space" goes straight to the top ten of bad zombie movies.

Why? Well, everything about this movie was just horrible, aside from a somewhat interesting storyline. The story is taking place in post Second World War Bavaria, with American troops still found in the country. A strange phenomena takes place in a small rural village, and soon the village is overrun with flesh-eating reanimated creatures from outer space.

The storyline was actually interesting enough to make the movie watchable, while everything else was just downright awful.

The acting was wooden and hilarious, no one really put on anything even remotely memorable. And usually in war movies, you have Americans acting as Germans and speaking English with a bad German-imitated accent. In "Zombies From Outer Space", however, it is the other way around; here you have German actors trying to act like they are Americans and speak American English. But it was so awful, their accents were all over the place and didn't even remotely sound like any American accent I have ever heard. Worst of all was Siegfried Foster (playing Captain John Welles). I have never heard English that bad before. Especially his scene in the aeroplane (from 28:05 to 29:32). I had to go back after the movie finished and watch that scene again because it totally cracked me up.

As for the dialogue in the movie, well, let's just say some sort of dialogue was there. But it was rather pitiful. And the actors and actresses didn't deliver it with much conviction.

The aliens resembled something from a 1970's Sci-Fi movie; people running around with fake prosthetic heads. Heads that were made from papier-mâché, with non-functional parts. It was so rigid and fake. And how very convenient that all the aliens were wearing trousers (but nothing else).

"Zombies From Outer Space" is so bad, campy and cheesy that it is actually worth watching, just for being able to say 'yeah, I watched that one and survived!'
