Four astronauts travel to the Moon on a rescue mission to determine the fate of two NASA comrades who have not been heard from in several days. The individuals they find at the Lunar Base are not whom they appear to be and, through acts of trickery and deception, nearly succeed in killing our heroes. The four return to find that everyone on the planet has been transformed into a variant life-form. Aliens from Mars have conquered Earth and now seek to destroy the last remnants of humanity. The astronauts fight back and soon discover how to rid themselves of the alien threat.Written by
It's madness.. Pure unapologetic camp.. Rude.. infantile.. Poorly acted on purpose. Rediculous cheap and obvious props. Filmed in random living rooms dressed up as spaceships. Absolute lunacy. It's a cringe inducing b-movie MASTERPIECE!
It is hilarious, fast, smart and jam packed by people who know a thing or two about Star Trek and B cult movies. Not only does it pay tribute to sci-fi on television and in movies, but it also pays homage to other sci-fi parodies and comedy genres. You can find a some Mel Brooks in there, as well as the Marx Brothers and of course some nudges towards the Zucker brothers.
It is almost like a band of acting brothers have something to say about the current state of television, culture and a certain company called CBS and the writers effortlessly show a mastery of the details of more than 50 years of sci-fi lore. Perhaps an experiment by talented writers and actors to see how hard it is to match the incompetence demonstrated by JarJar Abrams/Kurtzman/Ocri and their ilk. Alas they have failed. In all it's cheap silliness, it is charming and coherent.
If you need your quick fix of polished mindless mediocrity, then you probably could NOT care less about this, but if you have a pulse, you'll get some good chuckles out of this crasy-train!
Also, I would never dis anything with Snoop.. but that is a given, surely.
