Tagline: They Came To Earth To Feed On Human Flesh!

Plot: Two campers in the New Jersey woods have their outdoor fun interrupted by the arrival of a meteorite crashing nearby. They go to investigate the crater, but are suddenly attacked and devoured by alien parasites who have hitched a ride to Earth. After finishing off the campers, the hungry space monsters head for a nearby town, where they make their domain in the basement of an old house soon begin polishing off one hapless inhabitant after another. Four young teenagers, plus one pre-teen boy, try to find a way to stop the angry space monsters before they reproduce and literally eat humanity.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Nice. What a pleasant surprise. This is actually pretty good. What seemed like a typical monsters from space movie turned out to be a very good low budget monsters from space movie. The acting is much better than you would expect and the makeup and creature effects are pretty good considering the budget constraints. There's some talent here. It's director McKeown's only film which it too bad. He really put together something fun for only $25k. Definitely check this one out. Fans of horror will be pleased.
