However, I think that would be a mistake. The above movie is Alien Trespass and while I haven’t seen it, with a poster like that, now I know I need to! Looking like it was made in 195o (it was actually filmed last year on an indie budget) with the likes of Dan Lauria and Robert Patrick showing up, Alien Trespass is probably a movie that could ONLY be properly enjoyed in that late summer night ambience that only the drive-in can provide. And if you are interested in checking it out, you can get into Bengies Drive-In, located in Middle River, Baltimore, MD (see the WEBSITE for showtimes and directions and all that other stuff) for 8 bucks and that includes not only this little gem but two other films as well.
