Earthling, 2011 - ★★½

Earthling, 2011 - ★★½


After Judith suffers a miscarriage she starts to crackup but is she really losing her mind, or could she be linked to a recent event on a satellite orbiting earth. Thats sent a transmission to several earthlings releasing a dormant tumor linking them with an alien species.

Cerebral science fiction made at cost, from writer/director Clay Liford who really attempted to create something interesting with Earthling, but its painfully pedestrian buildup and obvious budget restraints (which I accept are out of the poor guys hands), sadly detracted from my enjoyment. Rebecca Spence really tries in the lead as Judith, the only face I recognized was Peter Greene's (who had played Zed in 'Pulp Fiction'). Damn I hate not giving this more of a positive review & score, but to do so would be like giving a special prize for trying even though you couldn't finish the race. Worth seeking out if your in the mood for an indie science fiction movie.

Lots of cheesy Shivers looking alien parasites.
