worst looking aliens ever

February 18, 2008

...barely rises above the level of most made-for-TV fare and before it's halfway through descends irreversibly into standard horror-movie clichés.

Audience Reviews for Progeny


An Alien version of "Rosemary's Baby" directed by B-movie director Brian Yuzna. It wasn't bad, but not great. The acting is pretty good by the cast which includes Arnold Vosloo and Brad Dourif. There's the odd gory moment too. At the end of it all though it's your typical big-eyed cheesy alien abduction movie which was a little too over-dramatic for my liking.

Far fetched and unconvincing story, kind of an alien Rosemary's Baby. The decent budget helps, the acting isn't bad but the story is so lame nothing can save it.

I'd have to say that this is one of Brian Yuzna's last good films that he directed. The story follows a young couple who are desperately trying to have a baby, but suspicions start to arise when the wife gets impregnated after having "dreams" of being raped by aliens. Soon, the husband starts seeking out the truth. Arnold Vosloo (in his Pre-Mummy career) gives a really good performance here as the tormented husband, as do genre icons Brad Dourif and Wilford Brimley (diabetus!!!). Be prepared for a real "fuck you" ending, which I loved. Good film.
