Alien Trespass

Alien Trespass, Sci-Fi Retro Comedy,

Lands on DVD and Blu-ray August 11

“Will & Grace’s” Eric McCormack & “Terminator 2’s” Robert Patrick Star

Alien Trespass, a delightful homage to the great science-fiction movies of the 1950s, invades our planet’s digital world August 11 on Blu-ray and DVD.  Image Entertainment is releasing the Rangeland Production which stars Eric McCormack (Will and Grace, Trust Me), Jenni Baird, Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years) and Robert J. Patrick (The Unit, The Sopranos); Jody Thompson co-stars.  The scary-but- fun-for-the-whole-family film will be available for $27.98 SRP (DVD) and $35.98 SRP (Blu-ray). Orders are due July 14.


Directed and produced by three-time Golden Globe® winner and five-time Emmy Award®-nominee R.W. Goodwin (“The X-Files”), Alien Trespass finds its inspiration in the films of the post-World War II boom period when America was filled with hope and prosperity despite the threat of nuclear annihilation.  It recreates the genuine scares, the sometimes unintentional humor and the disarming innocence that have made these films such compelling and timeless entertainment.


In the bonus materials, ‘tongue-firmly-in-cheek’ news reports confirm the current Alien Trespass is a rare print of a long-lost classic unearthed earlier this year by workers at a Hollywood construction site.  It was more than a half-century ago that Louis Q. Goldstone, head of the studio that produced the film, cancelled its release after a dispute with star M. Eric McCormack, grandfather of actor Eric McCormack.  Also included are interviews with the “original” actors who appeared on Edwin R. Burroughs “Meet the Person” along with “original” theatrical trailers. A complete list of special features is below.  The news reports, along with other material, can be viewed at the

Set in 1957, Alien Trespass chronicles the tale of a fiery object from outer space that suddenly comes crashing into a mountain top in the California Mojave Desert, bringing the threat of disaster to Earth. Out of the flying saucer escapes a murderous extra-terrestrial creature – the Ghota, which is bent on destroying all life forms on the planet. Urp, a benevolent alien from the spaceship, is the only one who knows how to stop the monster, but to do so he must inhabit the human body of Dr. Ted Lewis (McCormack) – a noted local astronomer – and with the help of Tammy (Baird), a waitress from the local diner, begins a race against time to neutralize the Ghota before it consumes all the local inhabitants and uses the human fuel to multiply and conquer the world!
