THE ALIEN DEAD / Firdbird International Pictures - 1980
Now, here a crazy little production by Fred Olen Ray with a $12,000 budget, starring my favorite actor in the fifties, Buster Crabbe. Growing up back then, he was my hero. He was Flash Gordon, Tarzan, he was handsome with blond hair and well built, the perfect good guy. But, by 1980, it's a different story...
The actual alien invasion is supposedly explained in the credits, that white ball just flies through space, that's it, the aliens are here!!!
I have a silly sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our catbox, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a sample from... THE ALIEN DEAD!
Here's club toting Deputy Campbell interrogating Mr. Griffith after his wife goes missing while out hunting alligators in the swamp at night.
It's all these guy's fault, hillbilly zombies from space! They hide in the water at night and come out in the day to find food... Seems backwards to me but who really cares anyway. This old biddy gets a pitchfork through the gut before they chow down on her.
Deputy Campbell gets an eyeful of fine Floridian fanny while waiting to pay for his bubble gum at the market. The best shot of the batch.
I like this shot, that place is just plain greasy looking, I guess a typical Florida swamp shop.
I don't understand why the moronic victims of the slow moving zomboids don't just, like... RUN!! You know what?.. I give up, you freakin' deserve to die!
One horny zombie gives this gal a boob grab!
Buster plays wise guy Sheriff Kowalski, in this 5 minute scene there is not even one close up of him! That's a sure sign of an amateur production.
Those damn crazy mixed up zombies slurp up a nice, dead, tangy skunk on the road!
JOE!!..NO, not now!!.. You're ruinin' the fun, jeez!!
Well, hello der!!
I had to end with something, so, here you go! Looks like that explosion probably used up 20% of the budget... Be back on Wednesday for more from... The Dungeon!
