What it is: Alien babes on a budget
Drawn to Earth by a misdelivered teen magazine, several female space aliens seek men for mating, but swear revenge when the men prove disappointing.
I initially mistook this one for a Troma film; between the title and the fact that the opening shot of the movie looks similar to the Troma logo is what threw me off. Nevertheless, the title alone would lead you to believe that this was going to be like a Troma film – intentionally bad tongue-in-cheek horror/sci-fi with a plethora of exploitation elements (read: nudity). Oh, it’s quite bad, but what do you really expect from a movie which reportedly was shot on a budget of $32,000 over a four-year period with a cast of what mostly appears to be rank amateurs. But those looking for the exploitation elements will be sorely disappointed; there’s some near nudity in a couple of scenes, but the only thing that might have kept this one from a PG rating was a little too much cussing. Occasionally, a specific humorous touch will work; for example, I like that the old school has a sign in front of it that says “Old School”. But it’s mostly just dumb and amateurish. Keep your expectations very low.
