Hey everybody,

Trying to remember the name of a late 70s or 80s alien movie (I probably saw it somewhere mid 80s). The movie starts with the narration: "So-and-so city with the highest crime rate in america ......" or something to that effect. Could be San Francisco, but I can't remember. Alien lands and goes on a crime spree .... some cops try to stop the alien. I could've sworn this alien has a shoulder-mounted cannon (like Predator) .. or I could be wrong (that could just be my childhood exaggerated memories!!). Or it may have been lazers from its eyes .... can't remember. I vaguely remember the name of the movie being 'The Dark' or 'In the dark'  ..... or maybe 'in the night' ...... but couldn't find anything even remotely close on Google.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance ......

I think I found it:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079027/

"The Dark" - by John "Bud" Cardos

Even has Cathy Lee Crosby, Casey Kasem and Keenan Wynn in it!!!

So, no shoulder-mounted cannon .... it was lasers out of the eye. And looks like the city was LA, not SF .... I was close!!! ;)

Available on DVD now too.  You can probably get it from Netflix.  I keep meaning to pick up this one for my collection.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
