REVENGE OF THE SPACEMEN (2014) Reviews and overview

 

Revenge of the Spacemen is a 2014 American science fiction comedy horror feature film directed by Jay Summers from a screenplay by Conor Duffy. The movie stars Beth Albrecht, Danny Bass and Benny Benzino.

Plot:

Aliens descend onto earth in a flying saucer, leaving a few witnesses in a small redneck town in a state of shock. Unable to convince other backwater locals that what they saw was more than a hallucination, the witnesses embark on a mission to find proof of the extraterrestrial invasion.

When the gang turns up a couple of missing backwater cretins who recount their tales of probing alien abduction, compounded with a seriously out of this world case of gas, townspeople finally start to believe. The noxious gases go from unbelievable to unbearable, and it takes a boozy backyard standoff to eradicate the extraterrestrial terror…

Reviews:

“For all the schlock, Revenge of the Spacemen has some decent amateur acting.  I thought the core group delivered convincing lines (there were a few stumbles) […] I would have preferred the film played more subtle (the opening scenes of the spacemen in shadow are effective), with diminutive aliens not prominently shown.” Monster Minions

“This is your classic, totally amateurish effort with some silly masks whose “joins” at the neck are left flopping around, some bad CGI effects and a classically bland Fifties-style flying saucer […] It’s dumb, stupid and idiotic. But ultimately, it is dumb, stupid and idiotic fun.” Rivets on the Poster

“Director Jay Summers made a fun homage to the more innocent and fun era of horror and science fictions films of the late ’50s and early ’60s […] Worth a look for fans of old school horror sci-fi films, broad comedy, and midwest slapstick.” Spandex and Monster
