Maverick detectives Ian McLemore (Charles Napier) and Jerry Merris (Ron Glass) find a routine investigation of the death of two teenagers takes a twist when they discover the killer is some kind of mutant alien thingy created by the U.S. Government. Naturally, whatever they do pisses off Capt. Robertson (Bo Svenson, proving he really isn't Napier in real life) and interferes with McLemore's plans on bedding young police woman Carla Sandbourn (Ann Turkel). Just kidding, he has mad bag piping skills that get her to take her clothes off (really!). This low-rent ALIEN rip-off from Fred Olen Ray works mostly due to the lead performance by Napier. He is genuinely funny and totally game for the crazy stuff he is asked to do (chasing mini-aliens around L.A.; chainsawing the monster in the finale). And the aforementioned seduction by bagpipe is truly something you've never seen before. Ray skimps on the gore and nudity (odd for him) but does deliver a nice gooey monster (which apparently comes with its own strobe light). Julie Newmar pops up for a few scenes as a psychic who is always calling McLemore with tips on where the alien is. Nice way to cover your holes, Fred.

An American satellite with a new biological weapon gets out of control and crashes onto US territory. A slimy monster emerges and manages to escape, killing everyone who crosses his path.<br/><br/>We have a great cast here, with Julie Newmar, Charles Napier and Bo Svenson. I mean, wow, good job guys, getting such a great lineup of character actors for such a disposable film. This puts &quot;Alienator&quot; to shame! Did you think the vine scene was eerily similar to the tree assault in &quot;Evil Dead&quot;? I sure did. Intentional? Maybe not, but when you are dealing with king of the B-movies, you never know when he might be ripping off &quot;Evil Dead&quot; or &quot;Alien&quot; or any other number of better-known films.

Veteran director Fred Olen Ray and cinematographer Gary Graver prove they have the skill to put together a good low budget rip-off of Alien--but that they aren&#39;t gonna any time soon.<br/><br/>The movie is essentially a long string of clichés: Napier and Glass play two cops who &quot;don&#39;t play by the book&quot; blow up a car by shooting it, killing a perp who&#39;s &quot;just a kid&quot;, getting suspended by their hard-ass boss (but mysteriously continuing to work nonetheless), investigating a mysterious murder which is being covered up by the military which, naturally, has been engaged in creating a super-war machine, etc. etc. etc.<br/><br/>Ann Turkel does an admirable job, even though she&#39;s given the thankless task of being Napier&#39;s love interest and virtually falling apart every time something happens.<br/><br/>Then there&#39;s this whole business of stunt casting Julie Newmar as the psychic who tells Napier where the alien is.<br/><br/>The frustrating thing is that, in between the nonsense, FOR shows a real talent for pacing, action and shooting on a budget. He and Graver manage to create real atmosphere in the final scenes that, even though it&#39;s directly lifted from Ridley Scott&#39;s &quot;Alien&quot; (note the character name &quot;Mrs. Ridley&quot;), complete with inexplicable smoke, light, dripping water and even strobes, it&#39;s a tantalizing look at what the two are capable of when they set their minds to it.<br/><br/>But as much as I was rooting for it, when Napier says (in the post-coital dialogue with Turkel) &quot;The street is my boss. Who&#39;s yours?&quot; I realized that the movie had landed in camp-ville, like it or not, and there it would stay.
