“Nothing like poopin’ indoors.”

“Did I tell you I’m a roadie for Hoobastank?”

“He was strangling him….  And his Johnson.”

“Methed up Meth-heads could outrun anybody…  Over a short distance.”

What We Learned

Three-wheelers are as unsafe as advertised (shouldn’t be operated by meth-heads)

A meth-head can survive for a long time after being disemboweled by a dog

Date Watched: 8/21/14

Plot:   A crew of scientists arrives on a far, cold planet to examine archaic artifacts of unknown origin. They discover that their German enemies already have a ship there. When they seek their help after a failed landing, they only find the Germans’ bodies, obviously slaughtered by one of the archaic creatures, awoken to new life. Now the alien is after them.


  • People on headphones
  • Old-school computer screens
  • Star Wars and/or Alien rip-offs
  • Stuff that is just WAY too 80’s (hair, lingo, technology, etc)
  • Aliens take control of a person

  • “Like mind control?” “Except they replace the brain.” “Yeah, and we’re next on the menu.”
  • “Why were you away so long?” “I got lost…”

Viewer Quotes

  • “This is the most 80’s movie ever.”
  • “Whoa! He’s got a space-suit wedgie!”
  • “How come some people are reanimated to look like normal people, and some people are just dead?”
  • “This guy has a walkman and a track suit.  He couldn’t look any more 80’s.”
  • “So that thing just eats bodies and bites heads off?”

What We Learned

  • Never, EVER split up. 
  • Germany split into East and West Germany (again) in the future
  • Polaroid cameras were the apex of technology
  • People in space also wear nametags
  • Never assume an alien is dead. 

Final Take

  • A low budget, slow alien movie. Could have used more boobs (only one pair).
