ALIEN PREY - Skull
Rated R
Copyright 1984 Tymar Film Productions.
Reviewed by Andrew Borntreger on 'a long time ago'

The Characters:  

  • Anders Anderson - Alien scout, his real name is Kator.
  • Jessica - Bisexual, rather codependent, who runs around in transparent clothes. Anders eats her after sex (literally).
  • Joe - Jessica's jealous lesbian lover, she is munched by Anders.
  • Simon - Jessica's previous boyfriend who we gather was killed by Joe.
  • Wally - Jessica's parrot. I know, but I'm dying for characters here! Is eaten by Anders.
  • Two cops who wander through - Eaten by Anders.
  • The Fox - Wrongly blamed for eating the chickens (guess who ate them). Eaten by Anders.

Buy It!

The Plot: 

This movie is bloody bad I tell you, no wonder England lost the War of Independence. Yes this film has changed history, Einstein never thought of it but the closer a country is to a movie of this foulness the harder it is for them to win a war (EMC+Alien Dead/vampire fangs=total crap). These two lesbians are living together (Of course only one is attractive, the other looks like a man baby!) in the backwoods when a alien scout lands on Earth. Alien scout might be a little misleading, it's this skinny British guy who sometimes transforms into a skinny British guy wearing vampire teeth. Despite Jessica's gratiutous nudity the plot drags on and on... ...and that damn scene where Anders is drowning in slow motion! Of course there is a stirring sub plot involving Joe killing anyone showing romantic interest in her woman, which lays groundwork for Anders' and Jessica's sex scene. Unfortunately he gets a little too excited and rips her neck out, not unusual considering the fact that he eats every other character including the parrot! This is a painful film, keep away from children at all costs.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Feral alien things are balked by flimsy doors if they're locked.
  • Blindly chucking a log into the thicket will hit your target every time.
  • The Brits have made more mistakes than just America.
  • Aliens are completely obsessed with parrots.
  • Kicking dead chickens for being dead is rather unproductive.
  • Partys should be held for good reasons, killing a fox is not among them.
  • Grown men and women play hide-n-seek.
  • Spacefaring alien races have no idea what water is.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 6 mins - What the heck made a ripping sound?
  • 14 mins - He's limping so she wants to offer him water, how about a crutch you moron?
  • 23 mins - RANDOM GRATUITOUS BREAST SHOT!
  • 28 mins - Not the best way to compliment her cooking, gagging and throwing it up...
  • 35 mins - Lesbian scene! Okay, now change the angle. Get some more light in here!
  • 50 mins - Clear and non-bubbling Champagne huh?
  • 60 mins - Jessica doesn't notice Joe is holding that huge knife?
  • 68 mins - Anders is drowning in two feet of water?

I've just come from the National Film Theatre (London) where they showed this introduced proudly by the director himself. The saddest thing was it was a retrospective and they screened one of his short films from the 50s (called Incident)and it was quite artistic so somewhere along the line he lost it.
It was filmed at Shepperton studios in Surrey and the house and lake were part of the studios. At the end of the first week's filming half the film was completed.
(I thought the acting wasn't that bad)  It's awful overall but so bad it's good.

News for fans of this website: the producer of this film is negotiating deals for a sequel to  wait for it...

HAWK THE SLAYER!!

This is a classic movie. I loved it. I saw it as part of the Norman Warren boxset along with inseminoid and a couple of others. Apart from the slow drown in 2 feet of water scene, I couldn't fault it. What does that say about me?

Just watched this movie, and I would like to apologise on behalf of the UK for this garbage. When Kator's alien pals arrive to prey on the humans, they're going to get a shock when they discover that not all humans are as stupid as Jessica as Joe, and that earth contains many lethal duckponds, some even deeper than the three feet of water that almost killed Kator. Such a boring awful movie, even though it's only 84 minutes long. Even though there's barely any plot, none of it makes any sense - how could Kator not know what water was? Why did Jessica stick around when she found out that Joe killed her friend? Why did no more police arrive to investigate the death of the two policemen? Why does Joe insist on Kator staying even though she hates having him around? Why did anybody think making this movie was a good idea?

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.

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