• “The characters in Alien Trespass (directed by X-Files producing alum R.W. Goodwin) are specimens of Sputnik-era determination, led by a gung-ho Eric McCormack.” Entertainment Weekly • “Good silly fun, Alien Trespass is a dead-on spoof of cheapo '50s sci-fi programmers done with plenty of self-deprecating humor.” Variety • “This is an impressively realized (and, yes, occasionally, unavoidably humorous) valentine to Hollywood's sci-fi glory days – all heart, no snark, and one big eye.” Austin Chronicle • “A campy homage to those days of malt shops, drive-ins, and saucer-shaped UFOs - you know, the ones that go crashing into nearby buttes, unleashing terrible terrors from another galaxy.” Philadelphia Enquirer

Synopsis
The story begins in 1957 in the star-filled skies above California's Mojave Desert. Noted astronomer Ted Lewis is preparing a special dinner for his beautiful, adoring wife Lana to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Across town, Tammy, a waitress at a small local diner, excitedly looks out her window to see a shooting star, which she takes as a good sign for her dreams. Alas, the shooting star is really an alien spaceship whose fiery ball hurtles toward earth and crash-lands on a butte in the desert near Dick and Penny, who are necking in a lover's lane. A tall, metallic alien named Urp emerges from the craft unharmed but alarmed to discover that the monstrous Ghota, who was also on board, has escaped. This menacing one-eyed creature's unquenchable appetite could mean the end of civilization as we know it. Urp is the only one who knows how to stop the hideous extra-terrestrial, but to do so he has to take over the body of Dr. Lewis and enlist the aid of Tammy, the only human in town willing to believe and trust in his mission, since the local police are confirmed skeptics and offer little help. Together, Urp and Tammy hunt down the Ghota before it consumes all the local inhabitants, using the human fuel to multiply and conquer the world!
