review by
Mike Haberfelner

After an opening short about a woman's (Olivia Cugliari) encounter with a ghost (Ali Shmaisani), we're introduced to Daniel (Connor Mcdonald), a film school graduate who gradually comes to the realization that his degree has so far gotten him nowhere ... until he meets a stranger (Steve Kasan) who hires him on the spot to film his unscripted TV show. What the stranger hasn't told Daniel of course that he's an alien hopping from planet to planet to kill people - as entertainment for the TV audience back home. And to make some money on the side, he even sells the flesh of those he kills. Of course, Daniel is shocked at first - but he soon gets into the groove of killing and becomes the stranger's more and more willing partner in crime, enjoying it even. That is, until the stranger figures he has exhausted good mother earth, entertainment-wise, and wants to travel on - but not before making Daniel his last victim ...


Stylistically, this is a very authentic-looking throwback to shot-on-video movies of the 1980s, from poor picture and mediocre sound quality (including technical glitches on both) to slightly wooden acting, and frankly that's a style many are many are happy is gone now - but whether one likes the approach or not, one has to hand it to filmmaker Brandon Espana that his movie looks very close to the real thing and has the perfect retro vibes to it. But the film's real saving grace is its story that beneath its somewhat rough and rugged surface manages to marry its horror to biting satire that shows quite some insight into the underbelly of media consumption, but all without ever forgetting to entertain the audience. A fun one for sure.
