What could have been a fairly rote monster movie gives us a level of suspense that you normally don't get for a film that comes in under the radar.

While perhaps not the most original or groundbreaking sci-fi/horror picture ever made, Alien Raiders at least succeeds in executing a simple-but-effective formula.

Coming across like "Quentin Tarantino Meets Aliens in a Supermarket," this nifty little movie is enough to restore your faith in the vitality of low-budget independent cinema.

Suffice to say that Alien Raiders has a few modest surprises up its sleeve, and that's more than most low-budget genre concoctions even attempt.

Just finished watching this. It was a low budget movie but not that bad. Liked the ending.

A great alien film. Almost as good as "Unearthed." Although it is kind of a rip off of the 1978 film "Alien" and it's sequel "Aliens," it was much different than any other alien film, and had a good location for it.
