Bloodsucker From Outerspace
Dir: Glen Coburn (Tabloid)
So the film starts with a farmer doing his daily chores and after a strong wind passes by the farmer collapses in pain and starts puking up all of his blood, Shortly after he awakes in blue face paint and screams at the camera. Later we see our main character Jeff who is a local news photographer arriving at a crime scene where his friend a police officer Sam is investigating two bodies who have been mysteriously drained of all their blood with no sign of being attacked. At this point a local hillbilly claims that it must be the work of the Homo's.
Afterwards they head to research City to find his brother and are greeted by The leader of the Bloodsuckers and all the staff including his brother dead.
If it were not for the one scene of nudity in this flick this could easily pass as a PG-13 Sci-Fi comedy and this would be a nice film to put in for a cheesy movie night with some friends. If you are looking for something gruesome and gory this is not gonna be your speed, although their is allot of blood it is all so cheaply done it is definitely not intended to pass a graphic or grim. If you enjoy films that are just silly pointless fun and want something light for a movie night this one would be perfect but if you are looking for a gruesome Sci-Fi flick you would do better tracking down something like Deadly Spawn, Bad Taste or The Abomination which ave similar themes but are much more gruesome and dark. This is just a film that seems to nod at films like Plan 9 and other Ed Wood style films.
Gore:5 ( Definitely not a film that sets out to turn stomachs, but does have a few funny ore effects just to keep the viewer guessing)
Nudity:1 ( Just one pair of breasts in this one, so if thats what you are looking for you will be let down)
Story:5 ( Nothing serious here at all just lighthearted fun)
Characters:5 ( Everyone ham's it up for this one and knew exactly what kind of film they were making here)
Overall: 5 out of 10
