Xtro Collection (1983 - 1995)

Directed by Harry Bromley Davenport

Starring Philip Sayer and Bernice Stegers

More than a decade before "The X-Fles" made alien abductions a national craze, this bloody, schlocky, overly serious British film exploited the subject, while trying to cash in on the "Alien" craze, with mixed results.

A boy watches his father abducted by a fake-looking space ship. His father returns three years later—but in the form of a space monster. The creature effects are pretty cool. When the monster first shows up it's shaped like a man, but walks on all fours—frontside up. The monster rapes a woman who, in a graphic and particularly memorable scene, then gives birth to the full-grown father!

The alien/father befriends the boy and somehow enables his toys to come to life and start killing people. The story doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it does create the opportunity for some fun horror movie setpieces, including some bloodsucking by the alien/dad.

The best thing about this film—aside from the English accents—is the gorgeous Maryam D'Abo (the main Bond girl in "The Living Daylights") who has a small part and two graphic nude scenes. She's a hot babe. The film borrows quite a bit from past alien invaders film, particularly the classic "I Married a Monster From Outer Space" and "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," but it doesn't come remotely close to conveying the paranoia of them. Overall, it's a weak effort.

The tagline attempted to exploit the popularity of "E.T.": "Some extra-terrestrials aren't friendly." A sequel of sorts followed: "Xtro II: The Second Encounter and finally Xtro III: Watch the skies"
