We need more Roddy Piper in our lives, I think we can all agree on this. Thanks to a goofy-looking little movie called ALIEN OPPONENT, we're going to get some more. The Rowdy one co-stars in this flick, which comes out on APRIL 3rd, alongside Jeremy London, Adrienne LaValley and Ashley Bates. Apparently, ALIEN OPPONENT premiered on Chiller last year, but this is certainly the first time I've heard of it, and I'm guessing most of you are in the same boat.
Peep the synopsis below, it's just this side of f*cking crazy:
What do you do when you've just killed your redneck husband but your plans of collecting his junkyard estate are thwarted by the arrival of a spacecraft that crash lands into the barn where his body lies? Well, blame his death on the spaceman and then offer $100,000 cash reward to whoever can kill the uninvited, space-suited alien guest.
Junkyard owner Tom Mazurski has just caught his younger bride Meghan messing around with the town muscleman, but before he can slap the girl around, Meghan's mom snaps his head. The women want to collect on his estate, but the arrival of the unwanted spaceship messes with their plans -- the ship lands in the barn, making it impossible to get to Tom's body. Without a body, there's no insurance, so the women go on TV to set up a Survival-type contest: They offer $100,000 to whomever can get past the alien and bring the body home. Soon their town is overrun with every weirdo imaginable armed with every weapon imaginable, all intent on killing the alien and winning the prize.
Kinda nutty, isn't it? The weirdness continues with the trailer, which you can peep below.
The DVD will include audio commentary, deleted scenes, outtakes and a trailer. Pre-order that thing right HERE.
