Evil Aliens Review
Written by: moviemanX
I gotta say, I had no idea what to expect when I went to go see this at the Toronto International Film Fest last year - I just attended it because it seemed like my kind of movie. I was very relieved to be able to say I picked something that I really enjoyed. This is a....horroromedy? It's just so nasty, so uneccessarily gory and perverted, you can't help the laughs from coming out - it's just too much! The nastiness starts right away, as we join a woman and her boyfriend having sex in the middle of a field. All of a sudden an alien ship appears in the sky and sucks the boyfriend right off the ground, pants down and all. Within a moment or two, we find the true nature of the ship-owners (ALIENS) intentions, as they pull out a drill and jam it deep into the poor fellow's undercarriage (ASS), as blood and gore spews everywhere.
Now, this film was a part of the "Midnight Madness" film program of the festival, which meant if you wanted to see such films as this or "Hostel" for the first time, you had to come check it out at midnight. As late as it was to head to downtown Toronto for a movie, it was well worth it, because the only people who would want to go to such lengths to see a movie had to be real fans of this kind of weird shit.
Throughout the movie, we all laughed, yelled and hollered in unison, making this one of the best and most fun film-going experience for me yet. Once I got a hold of my fantastically-fun surroundings, I got back to the movie, where we joined the semi-protagonist, Michelle, as she informed her tabloid magazine boss of her next article assignment - To research a woman who just recently lost her boyfriend to a spaceship (wink wink) and while she was taken as well, was released by these "aliens" and is now pregnant. Tabloidist Michelle doens't really seem to care about the well-being of anyone else but her, and her story, but she takes along a group of people anyhow: an actor and an actress for re-enactment purposes, a two man camera crew to capture any weird going-ons, and nerdy virgin UFO "expert".
While nobody but the poor geek really believes in aliens, they do believe in money, so the group heads to the farm on which the pregnant young lady resides, where they find her bloated stomach and her jibberish-speaking family (seriously, I think it was a form of english, but we were given subtitles nonetheless). Once settled in though, Michelle and the rest of the gang find aliends to be quite real, and gear up with a gaggle of weapons such as chainsaws, arrows, shotguns and pitchforks. What ensues is probably the funniest alien attack I think I've ever seen.
Blood, gore, alien parts and sex (not in that order....i don't think) reign supreme, oh man did I laughed my ass off. At some point in there it even seemed like the story part came to a slow stop in the middle of the war with the aliens, but I really didn't care, I was having too much fun. I could tell while watching it, which I'm sure all you will too, that it was a bit on the low-budget side, so lots of credit to Jake West for making such a great film with such little to do it with. This is definitely a group-drinking movie all you horror fans, so crack open a beer and be prepared for you and your friends to laugh your asses off at the expense of everyone in the movie.
