Alien Trespass

2009 PG 1h 30m Blu-ray / DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
This homage to 1950s-era alien invasion flicks stars Eric McCormack as Ted Lewis, an astronomer whose body plays host to an intergalactic bounty hunter named Urp after a spacecraft crashes into a mountain. But Urp isn't the only survivor: A ravenous monster is now roaming the California countryside. With the help of a local waitress (Jenni Baird), it's up to Ted -- or rather, his alien alter ego, Urp -- to save the planet from total annihilation.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this spoof was made as a loving tribute to '50s B-movie sci-fi -- and, as such, has the same squeaky-clean feel and mild peril of those films. There's some sci-fi violence, but since it's being perpetrated by a guy in a rubber suit, it's hard to be too alarmed when men, women, and children are dissolved into goo. Expect a fair amount of pipe smoking (accurate for the era) and some kissing and ogling.

Sexual Content

Some kissing; some flirty talk between a husband and wife while she's wearing a nighdress. Teens make out but stop to talk about "going all the way"; their dalliance is interrupted by a crashing spaceship. When alien lawman Urp inhabits Dr. Lewis' body, there's some confusion, as Urp is attracted to a woman who's not Dr. Lewis' wife. But it's played as chaste romantic slapstick with some smooching.


Mostly fairly stylized sci-fi violence; for example, a monster attacks with tentacles, dissolving its victims into brown, foamy goo. Some scuffling and ray gun blasts directed at monsters. A policeman shoots the hero in the shoulder.


Aside from the occasional "hell," minimal.

Social Behavior

Recreating the style of a '50s sci-fi B movie, the film does have a gentle message about not judging those who are different -- in this case, an alien lawman -- without getting to know them. Departing from '50s standards, the main female character is resourceful rather than weak or passive.


Some mentions of brands like Coke, Rolaids, and Edsel.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Extensive pipe smoking (accurate to the period the movie is set in); a character is presented as a hard-liquor drunk.
