Cool-Looking Movie I Was Supposed to Screen This Morning

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember the good old days–when aliens were from outer space, not the Middle East, Latin America, and Europe?
This morning, I was supposed to screen this movie, “Alien Trespass,” but, unfortunately, the print didn’t arrive from the studio on time, so they’re sending us DVD screeners. I can’t wait for this one, which comes out in April and looks like my kinda movie.
I love the old-fashioned alien and outer space movies, like the original “Day the Earth Stood Still,” “Forbidden Planet,” and the newer but old-styled “Mars Attacks!” “Mars Attacks!” is probably my favorite because everything that professor Piece Brosnan, President Jack Nicholson, and all the peaceniks in it say about how we have to just “understand” and be nice to the aliens (and then they get zapped) is what our leaders have been saying forever–and especially in the last 7.5 years–about Islam (with similar results).
Here’s the “Alien Trespass” trailer (stay tuned for my complete review on the day the movie debuts in theaters):

You named all my fave SciFi movies Deb.
The “probe” arm in the trailer looks a little like the one from War of the Worlds.

On YouTube there’s a guy from Cleveland, OH Ray Glaser who is the ULTIMATE VIDEOPHILE! He has original broadcasts from TV shows in the 1970s–including some on BETA tape–talk about old school.
His favorite film of all time, MGM’s 1956 CinemaScope super smash Forbidden Planet. Some experts may say F-P may be the greatest sci-fi film of them all. In fact, Ray has some rare scenes from the film, including outtakes…
The tone is set even from the title card where as eerie space music plays, Leo The Lion (or in this case a lion named Tanner–long story Deb, then again i can get a little weird!)does his roar.

Straight to video. Looks interesting, though.
