Movie Info

An extraterrestrial crash-lands on Earth and decides to take up residence inside the body of an unsuspecting 73-year-old farmer. The occupied farmer seems OK until he starts having a definite craving for human blood, particularly the blood of menstruating women. So he heads out on a cross-country trek supping on sweethearts at a voracious rate. He settles in San Diego where he's fallen in love with a beautiful nurse. (His love of the ladies isn't limited to just their blood.) Soon an FBI agent is on his tail in hot pursuit. This film contains violence, nudity, and profanity.

Audience Reviews for The Arrival


Interesting but under-exposed plot that ends up turning into blandly generic slasher material. The characters are fine enough, but the story feels oddly toned and finished flatly without explanation.
