Greetings from Tromaville!
Troma Entertainment, Inc. has just acquired critically acclaimed tribute to classic alien invasion movies from the baby-boomer era, Revenge of the Spacemen, which was written and directed by Jay Summers. The film is the directorial debut by Summers, who drew aesthetic inspiration from the 1950's and 60's Twilight Zone episodes and other extra-terrestrial masterpieces like, Teenagers from Outer Space, with a hilarious and modern twist!
Revenge of the Spacemen descends onto earth in a flying saucer, leaving a few witnesses in a small redneck town in a state of shock. Unable to convince other backwater locals that what they saw was more than a hallucination, the witnesses embark on a mission to find proof of the extraterrestrial invasion. When the gang turns up a couple of missing backwater cretins who recount their tales of anal-probed alien abduction, compounded with a seriously out of this world case of gas, townspeople finally start to BELIEVE. The noxious gases go from unbelievable to unbearable, and it takes a boozy backyard standoff to eradicate the extraterrestrial BDSM terror!
" It's a throwback to all the classic alien invasion flicks of yesteryear, with a bunch of brilliantly retro-looking bug-eyed aliens arriving in flying saucers to conquer Earth. Too bad for them that the human race has more resilience than they expected."
