New: Alien Trespass

Making movies in the style of 1950s schlock scifi flicks seems to have become something of a fad! Alien Trespass (US-2009; dir. R.W. Goodwin) is just such a project and the world premiere is taking place at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on January 10 and 11.

Below is the newly released poster (click to see it larger).

The film stars Eric McCormack, Jenni Baird, Dan Lauria and Robert Patrick (ex-Terminator and late substitute Fox Mulder).

Set in 1957, a fiery object from space hurtles into a California desert mountaintop. A murderous creature — the Ghota, bent on destroying all life forms on the planet — escapes from the flying saucer. A benevolent alien, Urp, inhabits the body of Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack), a local astronomer, and with the help of Tammy, a waitress from the local diner, sets out to save mankind.

Looks like fun (and rather like a humorous, non-Viking version of Outlander)!
