A spaceship piloted by four alien convicts crash lands in New York City. Stalked by an intergalatic bounty hunter whose job is to kill them, the aliens attack and hide inside human bodies to avoid discovery. It's a race against time as the preservation of the human race depends on the avenger's ability to seek and destroy the alien invaders. Bland ripoff of "Aliens" is reminiscent of old-time "B" sci-fi flicks, with more gore and violence. Shot with the old 3-strip Technicolor method.

Available on Running time 88 minutes.

Unique storyline. The plot centers around an Aline ship that crashed in the roaring twenties. After taking over the human bodies of 2 local couples the aliens discover that the human race hasn't evolved enough for the right scientific advances to be available to repair the ship. So they go into stasis for 50 years or so. They come awake and come out with 1920's outfits and mindsets and guns a-blazing. A NY comic book artist gets inspired by their dress and accidentally re-creates their story in his comic book. Believing he's a spy or at least a threat the aliens go after him and his girl friend (played by the beautiful Gina Mastrogiacomo of Goodfellas and Naked Gun 2 fame ["This some kind of bust?"]) She gets killed but revived by the Alien Space Avenger looking to capture the 4 criminal aliens form many years ago. This is a surprisingly well made low budget Sci-Fi/Horror flick. Decent acting. Plenty of splatter, bodies and great SFX. A sleeper no doubt. I can't see why it didn't get more attention or wider distribution. Sometimes it's a matter of money and/or politics I guess. Catch it if you can.
