What happens when a spacecraft crash lands in a small-town junkyard and the owners offer a cash prize to whoever can eliminate their alien pest? Every wacko within 100 miles turns out to kill the alien to win the $100,000 reward, but it doesn’t take long for the junkyard to be transformed into a war zone of man vs. man vs. machine vs. alien.
On April 3, 2012, Shout! Factory will release to DVD the uncut version of Alien Opponent, a genre-bending sci-fi black comedy that pits rednecks, religious fanatics, kung fu masters, survivalists, college girls and frat men against a spacesuit-clad alien who only wants to repair his ship and get the heck off this planet.
Loaded with state-of-the-art special effects and blood-soaked gore, the quirky film stars Jeremy London (Mallrats), wrestling legend Roddy Piper (They Live), Cuyle Carvin (Assault of the Sasquatch) and Adrianne LaValley. Directed, edited and photographed by hot young director Colin Theys (he also did most of the special effects), the film features over the top performances, outrageous dialogue, fast-paced action, stereotypical characters, and homages to every iconic horror film of the past 40 years, including Alien, The Terminator, Slither, Night of the Living Dead, Predator, Resident Evil and even E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.
