An alien spacecraft crashes on Earth, unleashing several wild beasts on unsuspecting earthlings.

All right, there’s one monster that is kind of interesting looking; it’s the tall one that kind of resembles a satyr. That should cover the good points I found in this Don Dohler film. I think I spent more buying the DVD than was budgeted for this film. The acting is non-existent when it isn’t bad, and the direction looks like it was inspired by Larry Buchanan, though without Buchanan’s slightly stronger sense of character. Sure, it has a bit of a twist at the end, but in order for a twist to work, you have to care about the rest of the movie. At least the movie is only eighty minutes long. This one is primarily for bad movie fanatics.
