Bloodsuckers from Outer Space

Overview

This Texas-produced ultra-cheapie aspires to be a parody of cheesy monsters-from-space flicks, but the end result looks so amateurish that viewers may find themselves pining for the artistic merits of Fred Olen Ray. The plot involves a space-borne evil force that takes over the population of a backwater Texas town, making the citizens literally puke themselves to death, draining their bodies of blood before re-animating their corpses to do its evil bidding.

Overview

This Texas-produced ultra-cheapie aspires to be a parody of cheesy monsters-from-space flicks, but the end result looks so amateurish that viewers may find themselves pining for the artistic merits of Fred Olen Ray. The plot involves a space-borne evil force that takes over the population of a backwater Texas town, making the citizens literally puke themselves to death, draining their bodies of blood before re-animating their corpses to do its evil bidding. Despite making a good-natured attempt at poking fun at the military and the basic yokel lifestyle, the filmmakers manage to fumble at every crucial moment due to horrendous acting and cornball effects lots of red stuff is sprayed through high-pressure hoses, but that's about it. The film's sole highlight is the appearance of Pat Paulsen who literally phones in a cameo in his ideal role as the President of the United States.
