    Retro escapist fun. show more

    Alien Trespass is good-natured, but it's a wan send-up. When it comes to paying homage to classic "B" horror movies, "Monsters vs. Aliens" is the more clever alternative. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A campy homage to those days of malt shops, drive-ins, and saucer-shaped UFOs - you know, the ones that go crashing into nearby buttes, unleashing terrible terrors from another galaxy. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    The movie doesn't try for "Airplane!" or even "Scary Movie"-type ribbing, but its adherence to the genre isn't quite pure, either. Despite McCormack's good-natured efforts, this is "MADtv"-quality satire. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Although it's refreshing that Alien Trespass doesn't indulge in the sort of mindless, gross-out humor that afflicts so many current cinematic spoofs, it errs too much on the other side, offering mere pastiche instead of witty satire. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It tries to be the best bad movie that it can be. show more

    New York Post

    Sadly, laughs are sparse in this labor of love, a self-conscious spoof by longtime "X-Files" producer R.W. Goodwin. show more

    Alien Trespass needs to be buried for another 50 years and then unearthed to be studied for how tributes can go oh so wrong. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    This is an impressively realized (and, yes, occasionally, unavoidably humorous) valentine to Hollywood's sci-fi glory days – all heart, no snark, and one big eye. show more
