Like the Kramer picture, you won't be able to turn away

"The Day It Came To Earth has to be seen to be believed. There are movies that are bad, but fun (such as Killer Klowns)--but this one is so mind-blowingly bad, you will be slack-jawed before it is half over. The basic plot is that a meteor crashes to earth just after a witness to testify against the mob is bumped off and dumped into a lake. Said witness is reanimated by the meteor and for some odd reason begins to walk. After the meteor is discovered by our two heroes and taken to the resident geology professor (George Goebel!) to sort out, the reanimated corpse for yet another odd reason begins trekking all over hell's half-acre to recover it. The police detective is the typical skeptic who makes this astounding leap in logic and concludes the true nature of the meteor and is able to deduce the classification of the corpse: geological gaseous goon===his words, not mine! Perhaps the scene that says it all for this movie is when one of our heroes, Eddie, is making out with this totally hot blonde in his car, and she pants that she is ready for him to take her right here and now...and he decides to go "to the bathroom" into the bushes-and then that walking corpse appears and literally catches him pants down. Don't worry, this isn't giving anything away in the movie. The sound quality is decent, and the transfer is presentable. If this movie has any strengths, it is in the squareness of both the male and female lead characters. Oh, to actually meet someone like them in real life!
Look out George Lucas!

"This movie should have won an Oscar! By far the greatest sci-fi film in the history of mankind. I must praise the stunning performance by the great Ed Love as the monster. I do not believe I have ever seen a better disgruntled alien zombie! If you have not seen this movie, buy it. Now. Buy copies for your friends. Buy copies for decoration. Buy the poster. Spend money.
Have you ever seen the musical Cats? This is better! It has no Cats, but people scream a lot. Neato! The spectacular special features on this DVD should not be missed! I even sold my kidney to buy an extra copy for my neighbor. He loved Cats. He was in Cats. But he had to quit because he was allergic to the makeup. I told him, "this is the movie for YOU." And so I sold my kidney and he was so happy.
Be sure to watch the feet in the swimming scene and the car. What a snazzy car! This is my favorite movie of all time. I cry. Buy it."
A humerous representation of an Alien landing

"What would happen if a pair of chattering teeth came from one of the moons of Jupiter to inhabit a human corpse and wreak havoc on homosexual college students? I really didn't know until I saw this movie. If Mystery Science Theater took requests I would think that this movie would be perfect for them. Let me tell you this movie was so low budget that the dubbing was at least a fourth of a second off the whole way through. If it wasn't for the lack of dialouge, plot, good camera work, and dazzling special effects I would have given this movie five stars but it was funny and what else was I going to do for 48 minutes (I fast forwarded through most of it) so I decided to give it a 2. You should see it anyway though because then I'll know that someone else had to watch it too. We can't let great low budget movies vanish from the video archives. We can't let that happen!"
