Eric McCormack as Ted Lewis and Jenni Baird as Tammy star in “Alien Trespass.”
Roadside Attractions is finishing up work on its sci-fi adventure “Alien Trespass,” set for release on Friday, April 3.
“Alien Trespass” is an homage to the great science fiction movies of the 1950s, the post-war boom period when the country was filled with great hope and prosperity and, at the same time, lived under the constant threat of nuclear annihilation.
Set in 1957, the film focuses on astronomer Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack), his wife Lana (Jody Thompson), a waitress named Tammy (Jenni Baird) and a shooting star which turns out to be an alien spaceship.
From the alien craft emerges a tall, metallic alien named Urp. Urp is distressed when he realizes that the monstrous Ghota, who was also on board, has escaped. The menacing one-eyed creature's unquenchable appetite could mean the end of civilization as we know it.
Urp is the only one who knows how to stop the hideous extraterrestrial, but to do so he has to take over the body of Dr. Lewis and enlist the aid of Tammy, the only human in town willing to believe and trust in his mission. The local police – including police Chief Dawson (Dan Lauria) and officer Vernon (Robert Patrick) – are confirmed skeptics and offer little help.
It’s up to Urp and Tammy to track down the Ghota and neutralize it before it consumes all the local inhabitants and uses the human fuel to multiply and conquer the world.
