Alien Raiders (2008) movie review

Small Town, Big Trouble

It's closing time at the Hastings Supermarket in the small town of Buck Lake, out in the dark is an ominous group in a van. In terror-filled U.S.A., it seems obvious just who is in the van.

Alien Raiders is a low-budget film that looks like a low-budget film. The performances are worker-like, the shooting and sound are all up to scratch and the script is well enough written. All in all, this is the little sf-horror-thriller film that could.

Despite the lack of flash and finish that a "big" movie would have, Alien Raiders is watchable with a good dollop of suspense.

Promising, but not inspiring, Alien Raiders is good for a night at home with pizza, entertaining without straining a single brain cell.
