3.0 out of 5 stars An endearing 80's sex comedy
David DeCoteau has achieved a certain amount of notoriety among horror buffs. The man has made more films in the last year than many will achieve in an entire career. This isn't a problem in the case of some directors who can be counted on to occasionally make with the goods (Miike Takashi is a good example.) DeCoteau, on the other hand, hasn't really made anything worth...

3.0 out of 5 stars An endearing 80's sex comedy, 10 Sep 2013

This review is from: Grindhouse 5: Dr. Alien [DVD] (DVD)
David DeCoteau has achieved a certain amount of notoriety among horror buffs. The man has made more films in the last year than many will achieve in an entire career. This isn't a problem in the case of some directors who can be counted on to occasionally make with the goods (Miike Takashi is a good example.) DeCoteau, on the other hand, hasn't really made anything worth watching since the 80's. That's where his notoriety comes from. However, if we confine ourselves to looking at his early output we can find several films that have garnered a minor cult following: Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-a-Rama, Nightmare Sisters, Creepozoids... Dr Alien might be his most satisfying film of all (don't make too much of that claim though.)

So what's the plot? Well, there's this alien who's come to Earth with the intention of finding a solution to her home planet's reproductive problem. What that means in practice is this: the alien disguises herself as a sexy teacher at a high school, and from there proceeds with her experiments with the help of one of her reluctant students. Having been injected with a bizarre drug, the student finds himself occasionally sprouting a phallic... um... thing out of the top of his head. This appendage somehow causes any nearby woman to instantly turn into a sex-crazed nympho and jump him - whether he wants them to or not! Copious T&A and hi-larious hijinks ensue - especially when our hero decides to join a band! It's all very silly and cheesy but that's precisely what made DeCoteau's 80's output so much more fun than his later works. If you're looking for a goofy sex comedy with plenty of heart then this film might just be what you're looking for.

Oh, and it features Linnea Quigley and Michelle Bauer. Just saying.
