Alien Trespass

JOY REVIEW

Alien Trespass is a send up of 1950 movies with a fairly impressive cast, including Dan Lauria, Eric McCormack, and Jenni Baird.  It hits all the right notes in terms of how monster movies from the 50’s looked, acted, sounded, were scripted, and were cast.  The only problem with the movie is that there’s not much wit or satire that’s beyond the obvious of this is actually not the 1950’s and we’re not as worried about monsters from outer space as they were then.  So if you’re looking for a bit of heavy-handed homage, this may be exactly your cup of tea.  If you’re looking for a bit more energy or wit or satire or even irony, you may want to pass.  Two stars.
