Aliens punish one of their own by sending him to earth. The alien is very violent, and when the body he occupies is damaged, he is forced to find another.
Originally produced by Atlantic Entertainment Group for a 1988 release, the distributor's closing led the film to spend three years on the shelf before finally being released by Cannon in 1991.
Where are they going? They don't know what they're doing!
In the movie the Alien keeps ripping off people's heads to replace his own head that had exploded in the early part of the film, but It is only the head he takes, which he puts on his own body, which is white skinned, at one point he takes the head of a homeless person named Julius played by African American actor Antonio Fargas, and now all of a sudden the body is that of an African American, no longer white.
