Night of the Alien viewer reviews
SOME OF THE REVIEWS FROM THE AUDIENCE WHO ATTENDED THE SANTA CRUZ FILM FESTIVAL - taken from their web site
Being a volunteer/helping out with hospitality coordination I went into the theatre knowing that a ton of members of the cast were going to be there. Hearing them cheer and clap during the beginning credits started the movie off with good energy and foreshadowed a film worth the excitement... Night of the Alien was an lol hilarious riot of a stoner yet identity seeking adventure! The story-line kept me interested and intrigued as to what would happen next and never failed to keep me surprised, laughing, and even grooving to the soundtrack. As over over the top (and even out of this world) as some of the characters were, its messages and depiction of human nature, love, and adventure seeking remained down to earth, realistic, and spot on for the demographic it represented. As a young adult myself I could personally relate to its identity (and love) seeking main characters. AWESOME JOB GUYS!
great movie and the whole concept was well performed and very entertaining loved it.
Totally blown away. Awesome flick!
Loved this movie! I went in without knowing what to expect and was blown away. Great acting, storyline, and dialog was awesome. Great job to the entire cast and crew!!!
Wow! What an amazing experience!!! Such a roller coaster ride of crazy characters, insane situations, incredible production value and a thoroughly exciting story. I loved it!
Completely outside the box, fantastical fun. Brilliant job by all involved.
Now that was a great road trip. Thoroughly entertaining performances by a great ensemble of actors. Laughed all the way through. Would love to go on that trip again!
OK, it's a future cult classic like Fear and Loathing in LV. But why should I care about these losers? And, yes, they are human beings and I was probably a boring stoner at that age too.
A fun and quirky movie with elements Cheech and Chong in its drug references and the chaos of those on the edges of society but with a lot of heart which comes through the great performances of the cast.
What a ride!! The characters, the music and the story were epic! I got to see it again
OKAY... WE DID GET ONE LIKE THIS:
Ouch. It's been a long time since I've been physically angry with a movie for wasting two hours of my life. Verging on incompetent. Or maybe I just needed to be seriously ripped ... which clearly the filmmakers were.
BUT EVERY OTHER WAS LIKE THIS:
A trip-e, entertaining, laugh-out-loud ride that I would like to take again! Amazing sound track, awesome cinematography, well developed characters and great fun!
