Traci must battle forces from another galaxy!
Not of This Earth (1988)
Jim Wynorski, Chopping Mall and other gems, such as: The Hills Have Thighs, The DaVinci Coed, and my favorite, The Devil Wears Nada.
At the age of fifteen, Traci Lords started having sex on camera. It took 3 years before the FBI put a stop to it, creating a taint (hehe) on the industry. Traci then went on to acting school, and a short time later, Not of This Earth became her first feature film.
The director went on to do another 100 or so budget horror flicks, some of which I am sure you have seen. Prolific for sure. Not of This Earth isn’t a truly bad movie, but it certainly isn’t going to stick in your brain matter for long.
Traci Lords is up and down here (hehe). Some of her lines are delivered rather deftly, while others sound like a 5yo trying to read the back of a cereal box. Interestingly, this is actually the last time that her nude body ever appeared on screen. After this movie, she decided to go completely legit and keep her assets secured safely in her sweater. I am actually a Traci Lords fan – hush – she was great in Cry Baby and perfect for Zach and Miri Make a Porno.
An alien has come to Earth to procure some blood to save his planet. In the process, a lot of girls get naked and have some sort of blue stuff sucked from them. I don’t know what it is. Maybe that said so in the movie, maybe not. Who cares. Nadine (Lords) figures it out and puts a stop to it – probably. Roll credits.
Not of This Earth is actually a remake of the 1957 Roger Corman flick of the same name. I have not seen the original, but I can’t imagine that it is all that much like this one. If I am wrong, let me know. Also, let me know if it is actually good.
This movie is great for those that like to look at breasts, unintentional humor, and campy sci-fi. But if anyone took a look at the cover art they would know that. Chances are if you were going to see this one, you already did. Unless you are like me and raid pawn shops, thrift stores, bargain bins, resale shops, etc to find anything and everything that may have a horror pulse.
I’ll keep watching the crap if you keep reading the evidence.
