Ey, the movie is streaming for free this weekend on Vimeo. I think it's fun and worth checking out.
I think there's some real solid imagery, great performances and big emotional punches that I really appreciate...but I don't think all the pieces work together 100%. There's a lot of things set up in the first part of the film that don't pay off, close proximity forshadowing & telegraphed tropey twists that after the fact doesn't make too much sense with thought.
When I saw the first trailer for this I thought the film was going to be an emotional horror…
Hey, I did it! I found a David DeCoteau film I actually like! No shitty racist caricatures (at least from what i saw), Decent characters, crazy giant head alien, fun!
...Which is nice because I bought this movie blind on VHS. The cover with the giant blue colored alien had always caught my eye.
The last part of the movie flounders a bit, clearly DeCoteau either didn't know how to end it or just plain ran out of steam- it's…
