"Gutsy" story of alien hunting

  • Nov 1, 2008
  • by
A group of rednecks go alien hunting. Otis, Cody, and Duke manage to bag one of the beasties and take it to Wyatt's house. Why? Evidently, all four were victims of the aliens in the past, including Cody's brother Timmy who was killed during the early encounter. Otherwise, its never explained why they bagged this bad boy or why they brought it alive over to Wyatt's.

Wyatt's girlfriend Hope is not amused. She calls the sheriff. Wyatt has some sort of relationship with these aliens, having been imbedded with a "clicker" in his intestines years ago. Evidently, the aliens want more clickers installed because they have a predilection for intestine pulling. The intestine pulling is what raised this from one to two stars. Do the boys kill the alien or return it? Are there ramifications to killing this alien? Wyatt seems to think so, but it turns out Wyatt has been ready for their return for years.

The most interesting part of this movie is that when they finally show the aliens, their mouths look vaguely like a discreet southern body part of the female anatomy, but with big teeth. Freud would have a field day.

The FX is bad (I swear I saw a zipper), the acting isn't bad but nothing to run to the awards with either, and the dialogue is juvenile. (One minute Hope stomps away from Wyatt's truck, the next moment she swears she'll never leave him) This movie was bad, not even cheesy bad but bad. Do yourself a favor and rent before you buy.

Aliens in the Florida Backwoods
   ALTERED is the latest horror flick from director Eduardo Sanchez who also co-wrote the film with Jaime Nash. You may remember Sanchez as half the team who brought you the highly successful BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.  Unlike its predecessor, ALTERED doesn't really break any new ground but it does hit the ground running.      The film opens promisingly with three very nervous good ol' boys stalking through the Florida backwoods; Otis, Cody, and Duke. We quickly …
Quick Tip by . May 01, 2010
From one of the guys who brought us BLAIR WITCH, but it's not nearly as good. A bunch of backwoods buddies have been trying to track down the aliens who inconsiderately abducted them one night. The object is payback. But things don't go quite the way they envisioned them.
