Movie Review: Evil Aliens

jake west evil aliens

Aliens are using a stone circle on an island off North Wales as a service station to power their ships and decide to start experiment on the local residents. When failing TV show Weird World find out about about a woman on the island who claims to have been impregnated by an alien they see a way to save their show.

Putting together a crack team consisting of a presenter, her camera man boyfriend, his best friend as the sound guy, an amateur UFO expert who is the world's biggest nerd, an actress who is sleeping with the producer and the cheapest actor they can find, the Weird World crew head for island of Scalled which is cut off from the mainland during high tide to investigate the situation but discover more than they bargained for.

A horror comedy written and directed Jake West who is famous for films like Razorblade Smile and Doghouse, Evil Aliens is reminiscent of Evil Dead, Shaun of the Dead or Braindead and uses excessive amounts of blood, shocks, gore and special effects to provide the laughs rather than actual jokes, thats not to say there aren't any good jokes but once you've seen the combine harvester sequence any jokes pale into insignificance... I don't want to spoil it for people who haven't seen it but its one of the funniest scenes I've seen in a long time.

Other than a brief appearance from Norman Lovett (Holly from Red Dwarf) there aren't many recognisable names in the film but the most famous would have to be Emily Booth (aka Emily Bouffante) who has starred in Pervirella and Cradle of Fear but is best known as a TV presenter and often regarded as the face of the Horror Channel.

Evil Aliens pays homage to a wide range of films from Jaws to Star Wars but Star Trek seems to be the most loved with a number of great references including the line "What in Roddenberry's name is that?" and a T-shirt which reads "God Hates Trek".

There are a few different types of alien in the movie, the main aliens look like demons wearing masks that a a cross between Predator and a goat, there is also the aliens' pet and little silver balls similar to the zeroids from Terrorhawks which are used to hunt humans.

Not everybody will like this film but if you have a strong stomach for blood and if anal probes, alien sex, alien babies, Welsh speaking English hating inbred rednecks, laugh out loud shocks and The Wurzels are your type of thing then Evil Aliens is a film you need in your life.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
