DER CHEF WÜNSCHT KEINE ZEUGEN - Hermann Thieme - "No Survivors, Please!" (1964)

Hiyah Kids, Hiyah, Hiyah, Eegah! The Gremlin here with a really special package tonight, another excellent but callous German mystery, but this time, they decided to really go Sci-Fi and bring in all these lost souls from outer space! The aliens are taking over the world one politician and scientist at a time. They kill off the real people, but by some miracle, the bodies all survive drownings, airplane crashes, falling off of bridges, etc., but now they are possessed by an alien's mind, who after they control enough key positions worldwide, are going to start a war to wipe out the human race, so they can have our world because they like it better here than on their own planet!! These bastards from outer space ain't messing around either! They are a ruthless bunch of cutthroats, who mean it when they say, "No Survivors, Please"!! Sound familiar?

This is The Senator and The Chief, they are running the whole show!! The aliens all seem to be alcoholics, which might add to their vicious attitude problem!

This clown is Armand de Guedez played by Gustavo Rojo! Armand is one mean space S.O.B. and I'm sure he would have been very comfortable hangin' out with those other mean spirited outsiders, the "Teenagers From Outer Space."

Armand is about to toss Karen Blanguernon as Vers Svenson off of this bridge!!

The Senator and The Chief actually interrupted their drinking to witness that whole scene, and somewhere along the line, The Senator picked himself up a cool cowboy shirt!!

Lucky for the guys, Karen Blanguernon also returns as an alien after that bridge incident, and her body doesn't even seen to be mangled at all!!

Armand goes completely nuts, but it was a very short trip for him!!

The brilliant musical score composed by Hermann Thieme includes a club scene and something akin to a Mardi Gras parade, and kicks ass like some of the best Mexican wrasslin' films of the same era right down to The End!!! And that's all there is!!!
