3.0 out of 5 stars LOW BUDGET MOVIE IS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD 27 May 2002
By BD Ashley - Published on
Another low budget Charles Band production, this ranks as one of his more enjoyable offerings. An alien named Cosmo (NOT SEINFELD's Kramer)is posing as a radio DJ and captures women, shrinks them and puts them on display in glass jars. So it's up to the real DJ shock jock Dan O'Dare and TV reporter Lisa Cummings to stop them. Though Dan isn't easily persuaded to begin with (he humiliates Cummings live on air when she claims to have seen a UFO) both soon find themselves warning the other townsfolk of the imminent danger, but, as in all B movies they are arrested, ridiculed etc. It doesn't take a genius to figure what the outcome will be, but it is quite entertaining. A sequel of sorts followed DOLLMAN VS THE DEMONIC TOYS, which is itself a sequel to (naturally) DOLLMAN and DEMONIC TOYS. Keep your eyes peeled for heavy rock group Blue Oyster Cult and the wierdo band featuring some goon dressed as a cow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Music. Alien Airwaves.!!!!!!!! 25 Jun 2002
By Michael Fleishman - Published on
Some men like to put women on a pedestal. Others like to put them in the kitchen. The new DJ at KDUL likes to put them in jars; he's a collector of babes and shrinks them down to carry them home. Only home isn't exactly next's another planet.
Now the real DJ at KDUL is Dangerous Dan O'Dare (Paul Hipp), an eccentric egomaniac who loves doing off-the-wall pranks while on the air. The latest butt of his jokes is Lisa Cummings (Martha Quinn), a local reporter who thinks she's spotted a UFO. (Yeah, right!) But the joke's on Dan when Cosmo, the alien, breaks into the radio station and takes a stab at show-biz. It seems that's the way to get the chicks. Now Dangerous Dan's reputation is at stake. The battle for the airwaves has begun...

5.0 out of 5 stars War of the Worlds Tribute 18 Dec 2007
By V. Robinson - Published on
Verified Purchase
If you are a War of the Worlds fan, this movie is a must have. It's hilarious as it makes fun of the original radio broadcast by having the radio station taken over by an alien.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not about the film, it's all about the slam-dancing nun 30 July 1999
By Devon Dale ( - Published on
This video is worth it strictly for the video with the SLAM-DANCING NUN and THE DUDE IN THE COW SUIT (complete with utters.)
3.0 out of 5 stars If Roger Corman movies were rated PG, this is what we'd have--a goreless flick that favors comedy over horror. 29 Sep 2013
By John's Horror Corner - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If Roger Corman movies were rated PG, this is what we'd have--a goreless flick that favors comedy over horror, but still involves monsters abducting women.

Director Ted Nicolaou (Subspecies I-IV, Terror Vision) and writer/producer Charles Band (the Puppet Master, Subspecies, Ghoulies and Trancers franchises) have crafted some truly laughable comedy horror nonsense for us. In the spirit of Roger Corman, a presumably horny alien and his robot sidekick have come to Earth to steal our women and they're using a local radio station to do it. However, completely unlike Roger Corman, there is no nudity, no monster-human "mating" scenes, no gore, and all of the laughs are deliberate. In fact, I struggle to understand how this received an R rating.

You might be wondering how this works... Well, first off, everything has to be covered in other-worldly alien fungus...because that makes sense. Then the alien plays rock music over the air waves and makes attractive young radio fans dance like party girls starring in their own music video until they are miniaturized and teleported into his the alien's collection jars.

By the way, these music videos seem to be the true theme of this movie, because we are forced to watch each one in its entirety. They're not very good and they last several minutes each. But I laughed when the scenes cut between the dancing girls' perception of what's going on and the perception of those around them who just think they're nuts dancing like a loon on diner counter tops, during surgery or in the middle of high school band practice. Keep an eye out for the electric guitar-playing nun and the guy in the cow suit in one of the music videos.

All the while DJ Dan is broadcasting live, narrating all of the transpiring events of this invasion and local listeners just think it's all a hoax. So Dan has to save the world on his own! How does he do it? Some disinfectant spray and a box cutter. Not since milk defeated the Ernest Scared Stupid Troll has there been such a dumb monster vulnerability.

As a horror superfan, I appreciate that this flick features loads of horror regulars filling the roles of truck stop owner Peanut (Sonny Carl Davis; the Evil Bong franchise, Jersey Shore Shark Attack, Trancers 2), news reporter Lisa Cummings (Martha Quinn; Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town, Dead Heat), station owner Vernon Locknut (Aaron Lustig; Pinocchio's Revenge, Scanner Cop II, Darkman, Ghostbusters 2), abductee Cookie (Charlie Spradling; Puppet Master II, The Blob), Corky (Michael Huddleston; Vampires), abductee Nurse Ginger (Melissa Behr playing the same role she did in Dollman vs Demonic Toys) and Dollman (Tim Thomerson playing the same role he did in Dollman vs Demonic Toys; Trancers).

The effects are extremely cheap, even for a bad horror movie. There is no gore, some slime and mostly just costume monsters. Unlike most horror of its time, this was made to be a goreless comedy horror rather than the more typical uber-gory horror comedy.
