2015-05-11-1431354317-9791185-Invasion_of_the_Star_Creatures_22644_4_410.jpgThe good often travels along with the bad. The good in this case: Yours truly has made the move to the lovely city of Philadelphia, a process that led to the extended delay of this episode. The bad: the film we're discussing, of course. The SF-comedy Invasion of the Star Creatures tries to mimic the slapped-together-fast-n-cheap success of Little Shop of Horrors -- with Horrors star Jonathan Haze stepping into the role of screenwriter -- but pretty much blows everything it attempts, most prominently any attempt at humor (unless you think grievously stereotyped Native Americans and a subterranean rewrite of an old Scooby-Doo chase gag repeated ad nauseum are downright high-larious).

Come join Andrea Lipinski, Kevin Lauderdale, Orenthal V. Hawkins, and myself, Dan Persons, as we explore why, if the alien invasion does come, we're hoping it's the face-huggers that get to us first. Click on the player to hear the show, or right-click the link to download.

NEXT EPISODE: We go into space to endure the terrors, and the bad acting, of Journey to the Seventh Planet.
