"Evil Aliens" DVD
Considering that "Evil
Aliens" starts off with some guy banging some
chick in the middle of what looks like a cheap Stonehenge, and
guy has the worst Austin Powers-soundalike accent I've ever heard,
I'm not exactly holding out a lot of hope for "Evil Aliens".
When they follow that
up with the...oh hell, I don't think even I can
bring myself to type what just happened to this poor, poor bastard.
Let's just say it involves anal probing. And the probe looks like
very large power drill.
Thankfully, every so
often, I'm wrong about my initial impressions.
sends out a group from a TV show in London to film
recent alien activity on an island near the mainland. The show
question, "Weird Worlde", is about to go under, probably
horrible production values and the fact that they have yet to
actually capture an alien or similar beastie. So when they actually
run into horrible, psychopathic, alien monsters, they're really
poorly equipped to handle it.
Let me just say that
if you're fond of the webcomic "Scary Go Round",
then you're going to absolutely love "Evil Aliens".
Aliens" is just as funny, just as freaky, and just as English
"Scary Go Round". Just to be very clear, "Evil
Aliens" is very, very
English. On a scale of one to ten where one is "Austin Powers"
ten is "Charles Dickens", "Evil Aliens" is
about a forty-two. They
will even reference "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
once or twice.
There will be plenty
of action, laughs, and gore so over-the-top
"gratuitous" almost seems inadequate to describe it.
There will also
be a couple of scenes that are such spectacles that they're actually
in poor taste. But regardless, overall, "Evil Aliens"
will be an
absolute panic to watch.
Oh, and lesson to any
aliens who may be studying my work--if you want
easy kills, don't come around the country. We keep lots and lots
machines with blades and augers and assorted engine-driven whatnot
attached just as a matter of course.
The ending is one of
the funniest, most spectacular sequences of farm
machinery mutilation I've ever seen. It may well be THE funniest
sequence of farm machinery mutilation I've ever seen. Oh hell...it
is. If for no other reason than I can't remember seeing any other
The special features
include audio options, extended and deleted
scenes, an outtake reel, a guided tour of "Life Creations",
trailer for "Evil Aliens".
All in all, I'm actually
somewhat impressed with "Evil Aliens". The
constant infusions of humor are quite welcome, and even the sometimes
gratuitous gore manages to work with the over-the-top nature of
