A band of aliens has been terrorising a remote Welsh island and its livestock. The hard-as-nails but barely articulate farmers are out to take revenge for their sister, impregnated by the visitors on one of their fly-pasts, but they have a rough time of it. Their unlikely saviours are a film crew reporting on the story along with their geek-expert. Abductions, anal probes and butchering sprees are the aliens' stock-in-trade, and the humans aren't much better when the pressures on. Horror and sci-fi fans will enjoy the numerous references (the more mainstream including Aliens, Evil Dead, Predator and Jaws) and in-jokes.
It’s the inventive set pieces that steal this show. A field of aliens mowed down by a combine harvester to the Wurzels anthem to farmers everywhere? A showdown in a septic tank?
Gloriously politically incorrect, and disgustingly gory, the only reasons not to see this are if you are very sensitive, vegetarian, an alien or perhaps Welsh. NS
