Plot: What’s it about?

The television program Weird Worlde explores unexplained phenomena, with a focus on aliens and their visits to Earth. The show plays like a low rent search for truth, but in fact, most involved see it as just a paycheck. When a story about a girl who claims to have been raped and impregnated by aliens surfaces, the Weird Worlde crew heads out to cover it. But once there, host Michelle Fox (Emily Booth) and her crew mock the woman’s claims, much to the displeasure of the alien expert brought along. The crew shoots a few quick interviews, then a laughable recreation and prepares to leave. But some complications prevent them from doing so and then, what seem to be real aliens arrive. Are these creatures actual aliens from another world and if so, can anyone from the Weird Worlde team survive their invasion?

Evil Aliens has it all, with alien sex, death by weed whacker, scuba diving in feces, a lethal anal probe, and yes, someone even slips on a banana peel. This is one wild ride, with elements of sci/fi, horror, and slapstick humor, all combined in a hilarious, over the top alien splatter picture. I had a lot of fun with Evil Aliens, from the low rent, but quite effective digital effects to the buckets upon buckets of blood, this is just a fun ride. The gore is ample and creative, with enough bloodshed to satisfy the horror fanatics, but this isn’t just a blood bath. The humor works well and isn’t overdone, while the sci/fi elements are well handled and the makeup effects are pretty solid, at least most of the time. The movie is no classic, but it is a ton of fun and a cut above most recent horror movies. So of course, I give Evil Aliens a solid recommendation to genre fans. But keep in mind, both R rated and Unrated versions are available, so make sure to grab the Unrated release.

Video: How does it look?

Evil Aliens is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. This is a good transfer, a clean and crisp treatment all around. The image is quite dark due to the visual design, but detail remains strong and nothing ever seems muddled. Even in the darkest of scenes, no loss of visible detail is detectable, even the blood sprays look strong in the shadows. The colors aren’t vivid, but look good and of course, contrast needed to be excellent and it is. The overall image might not be as polished or refined as Hollywood level stuff, but the movie looks superb here.

Audio: How does it sound?

The audio follows the same path as the video, not dynamic, but effective and more than solid. The Dolby Digital 5.1 option has a lot of work to do, since the movie starts off at a fevered pitch and rarely slows down. So from the first anal probe to the final gunshot, all the elements sound fine here. The powerful sounds, like the gunshots, chainsaws, and other loud stuff come across well, but again, lack the kind of refinement we’re used to. No issues with dialogue either, as the vocals sound clear and never suffer from harshness or other errors. This disc also includes a 2.0 surround option.

Supplements: What are the extras?

This disc includes a tour of Life Creations (where the film’s special effects were done), a reel of outtakes, some deleted scenes, and the film’s theatrical trailer.
