Consensus: An earnest attempt to parody campy 1950s sci-fi films, Alien Trespass eventually loses its charm among tedious dialogue and cheesy special effects.

This lazy effort gets points only for truly loving -- perhaps to a fault -- the cheapo creature flicks of the 1950s.

It's comfy. It's kitschy. There are lovely enticements but also much that is simply put and beautifully, beguilingly silly.

Emanuel Levy

The movie can't decide if it's an homage to 1950s sci-fi genre or a "new" kind of story.

Alien Trespass, with a rating notice that mentions 'brief historical smoking,' is at least better than last year's official remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.

While there's a lot to admire, it all feels like an engaging though needless academic exercise.

Simon Foster

An oddity from another time and place, and well worth a look because of it.

Stephen Whitty
Newark Star-Ledger

It's a satire without laughs, a parody without punch lines, a careful copy that replicates everything except the original's life.

Sinks under the weight of its homage.

Brian Orndorf

The patience and concentration of the film to not wink itself into a coma is amazing to behold, and I was flabbergasted over just how engrossing and playful the picture is.

Alien Trespass really had me excited. I love the old 50's Sci-Fi films and couldn't wait to see a modern one with that recreated feel. The problem… More

Well intended but pointless exercise in recreating those wacky sci-fi films from the 50's. There's a few funny moments here and there mostly thanks to… More

I loved this romp so much. It really takes very little to keep me entertained when it comes to tongue-in-cheek comedies. This is definitely one of the most… More
