Funny and awkward, intentionally low budget comedy, Capt. Nielsen saves this extended version of movie Airplane humor. Cindy Williams (American Grafitti) is the only woman on a crew of 5 which turns predictable. Suggested for Nielsen fans.

Plot: The spaceship Vertigo and its five-person crew land on a new planet. There they manage to pick up a red jelly-like alien organism, which starts eating its way through the crew.

The Creature Wasn't Nice (also known as Naked Space and Spaceship) is a 1981 U.S. motion picture written and directed by Bruce Kimmel. The movie is a comedy farce satirizing extraterrestrial horror movies such as Alien.

A movie that didn't want to be great, good or even average. Its a joke. This is just pure spoof of all things galactic, spoofing HAL from 2001 Space Odysee and Star Trek. Most of the action takes place in corridors of a space ship.



An attempt at parody on the then prevailing early 1980s science-fiction boom, in particular Alien (1979). More so, The Creature Wasn't Nice sees itself as a science-fictional version of Airplane/Flying High (1980).

Some of the gags are straight takeoffs - of Alien; of the rotating lift from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968); a door keypad plays the theme from Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and so on. Half the film's raison d'etre appears to have been to indulge director/star Bruce Kimmel's apparent liking for song-and-dance numbers - he wrote the songs that are performed throughout.

NOTES:

1 Director Bruce Kimmel is best known as a producer of musical recordings of Broadway shows. Since The Creature Wasn't Nice, he has only directed two other psycho-thrillers Prime Suspect/Trauma (1989) and Deceit (2006), although did come up with the story for The Faculty (1998).

I cant get it off my back that you would kill off a main character halfway through the movie, especially if he is the only one in the movie with a half a chance of getting a star on the walk of fame!
Highlight of movie: I guess when the alien sings I want to eat your face.
