OK time-waster from the "Roger Corman Presents..." cable series.
16 July 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

Roger Corman's 1957 cult classic NOT OF THIS EARTH already had two direct copies (in 1988 and 1995), but here it is again. This one has a few differences though, namely a female cast as the alien. The body of Sarah (Athena Massey) is taken over by an alien ("Quad Rena") who forces her to kill with death ray eyes. Victims are hung upside down and have their throats slit so blood can be collected and sent back through a portal to save a dying planet. Unlike other versions, the alien retains the memory of her host, gets drunk, explores sex, raids a blood bank, goes clubbing and falls in love with a doctor (Steven Bauer). Massey has lots of nude scenes and like the three previous versions this is watchable, but it's also full of badly incorporated, reused space and strip club Corman footage. Scripted by the director, based on the original screenplay by Mark Hanna and Charles B. Griffith. Corman was executive producer.

Score: 4 out of 10
