"A meteorite crash lands in a mountain near a town, a deadly three headed alien creature that resembles a three headed certain male's genitalia with sharp teeth hides out in someone's basement so that it can unleash it's spawn to devour human beings. However a kid with four teens must battle these hideous creatures so they can escape.
Gory and violent independent Science Fiction horror thriller made on a shoestring budget and took a whole year to make was released in 1983 in theaters, became a sleeper hit and a instant cult classic for years. There's good acting for a b-movie, nice special effects ( years before CGI), a good music score, twist ending, cool creature designs and gore as well! Hihgly recommended if you enjoy horror and Sci-fi.
The DVD has great picture & sound quality and the extras are very good such as commentaries, still and advertising galleries, a hilarious home video, a comic book prequel, alternate opening and credit sequence, bios and trailer.

"This is the perfect example of filmmakers who were somehow able to hurdle budgetary restraints and make a very entertaining and likeable film. All things considered, the monster effects are actually quite good, and rather than being merely laughable, the creature(s) feel like a definite threat, resulting in some relatively intense scenes. In addition to this, the film is infused with some great dark humor, especially during a vegetarian ladies' luncheon. I had the opportunity to see this film on the big screen last year, and it was obvious by the audience reaction (and the Q&A afterwards) that the film was well received and is effective after all these years. Now thanks to a this DVD release from Synapse Films, a larger audience will hopefully be able to see this film, looking better than ever. Check it out."
