A meteor crash near a Southwest desert town in 1957 turns out to be a flying saucer containing a deadly-and hungry-monster. An alien from the craft takes over the body of a local astronomer and, helped by a plucky waitress, tries to catch the beast before any more townsfolk are eaten. Eric McCormack, Jenni Baird, Dan Lauria, Robert Patrick, and Jody Thompson star in this tongue-in-cheek pastiche of '50s sci-fi films. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English DTS HD 5.1 Master Audio; featurettes; interviews; theatrical trailers.
