| Cheesy, campy and low budget galore...
This is low budget Sci-Fi, no doubt about it. You see it right from the very beginning. And as you strap yourself in for a low budget movie, I will say that "Alien Terminator" does deliver. And by that I mean that the movie delivers everything that a low budget Sci-Fi movie is supposed to.

And truth be told, the reason why us movie lovers buy this is obviously because of Maria Ford. Yep, that's right, that is also why I purchased this movie. I enjoyed her performance in "The Unnamable Returns" and have only watched 2 or 3 other movies of hers since then, so I have started to buy her movies from Amazon.

The story in "Alien Terminator" is initially either a blatant copy of "Alien" or a tribute to that very same movie. Which is the case, I am not sure. The story is about a group of people trapped underground as part of a two year long scientific study about people psychology while in isolation. A vile non-human creature comes into being and starts using the humans as hosts, leeching off of them to grow bigger and more deadly.

Even the way that the creature was living inside the human host and burst out of the body once having drained a human body entirely, was also similar to "Alien". Actually, there was a lot of similarities between the two movies all throughout the entire movie.

The creature itself was hilarious. It looked so fake and odd, and it was really hard to take it seriously.

As for the acting, well, I will just say that this is a low budget Sci-Fi movie, and you get what you pay for here. Hint, hint...

"Alien Terminator" is the type of movie that you watch once, then put it away, most likely to never watch it ever again.
