The cast and crew interviewees in the "Making Of" attached to this DVD pointedly reference John Carpenter's "The Thing" in relation to how they see their own little movie. Now, while it's admirable to aim for the gold standard of that classic, the comparison also runs the risk of alerting the viewer that "Alien Raiders" is little more than a few borrowed ideas rattling around until feature length is reached. It passes the time enjoyably enough; the cast are mostly good and the late night supermarket setting is well drawn. But as good as the borrowed ideas are, the film has no idea how to resolve them, and the final "twist" borders on being insulting to the even semi-conscious viewer's intelligence.

There are aliens among us, living inside human hosts. And, in a nod to another John Carpenter movie, only some people can see them. So we get the "who is/isn't an alien?" scenario played out to initially interesting effect. But the whole alien thing is basically a mcguffin to get the plot rolling rather than a theme the filmmakers are interested in exploring or in having some fun of their own with. The action scenes are quite muddled, with lots of fast cutting and jerky camera moves; there's lots of blood splashing around but that same camera trickery is deployed to minimise what we see of some slightly less-than-special prosthetic and creature effects.

Yes, it's a low budget movie. But that shouldn't have mitigated against the script being better developed and the characters being more memorably sketched in. The story might have been better and more tautly told as an hour-long episode of something like "The Outer Limits". As it is, this one's a painless watch, but you'll probably feel cheated if you pay anything like full price for it.

I wasn't expecting much so I wasn't disappointed. It was a cheaply made production but that didn't put me off. The storyline was good but I did feel it was dragged out a bit too much. Acting ok, casting ok.

A decent low budget take on the alien invader theme. It moves along fast ..
I must say that the thing that makes this movie is the acting rather than the script, the script is functional,but fills you in on the background in brief flashbacks, thus , this is not an epic ,but rather an endgame tactical battle.Very gory though

Armed gunmen crash into a small-town supermarket at closing time for an robbery but start singling out certain staff and customers for execution without ever making a grab for any cash. The film's called Alien Raiders so there's no prizes for guessing what the desperadoes' motives are for knocking their victims off - they're aliens who've infected the townies! The hunt is on for the King alien, so he can't knock up any more extraterrestrial hussies...

With generally competent performances, it's low-budget thrills all the way. With few special effects, the actors performances are key to the fun - Carlos Bernard does his thing no problem but the best performance has to be Rockmond Dunbar as the domineering Kane. He hits exactly the right tone trying to keep the fractious hostages in line while things start falling apart. The younger actors are at least reasonable, if occasionally chosen to be easy on the eye rather than talented.

The biggest problem is that it's all pretty predictable. If you've ever seen a sci-fi film before (or have an IQ higher than a squirrel) you'll spot the King at about 10 minutes and spend the rest of the movie screaming at the goodies to stop being such a squad of dunces. There's no real effort made to add any uncertainty or a twist to the ending either but that's part of the fun - it makes you feel superior 'cos you totally spotted it all and you get to bask in smug satisfaction at your acumen and erudition as the credits roll. But you'll probably enjoy getting there.

The only thing you need to ask yourself when deciding whether or not to watch a film called ‘Alien Raiders’ is… do I like the sound of a film called ‘Alien Raiders?’ If the answer is ‘Yes’ then you’ll probably get something out of it. However, if the answer is a, ‘No – that sounds like one of those cheap B-movies you see in baskets at petrol stations for £3,’ then you’re probably better off passing this one by.

It’s one of those films like ‘Snakes on a Plane’ where you basically know what you’re getting from the title. It’s about a group of aliens (who look human to save on special effects) who are tracking down a bad alien and take a group of humans hostage in a supermarket while they try and figure out who’s infected.

It starts off slow, but picks up pace about half way through. And then it becomes a reasonable little B-movie. So, for anyone with a taste for sci-fi who isn’t expecting ‘Avatar-like’ special effects, you may just get an hour and twenty minutes (cheap) amusement out of this.

So you've got a low budget, now how do you use it to best advantage?

First off, a closed environment (a small supermarket), next a small cast (about 8 once the extras have been got rid of), a good idea to get the best out of both (one or more of the cast has been taken over by an alien), strong characters, pile on the suspense and break the tension with gory incidents but go easy on the special effects and make the audience wonder if the good guys will not only survive but win and I really did wonder -I won't spoil it for you but I will say that not everyone survives. And, yes you will spot the really bad guy early on but the fun is in watching the bad guy's behaviour for giveaways.

And that's what they did with this neat little and effective sf/horror/thriller which I really rate at three and a half stars. It held me and entertained me for its entire length. The extras are worth watching: 2 behind the scenes pieces, and 3 character video diaries which enhance your appreciation of the movie's scenario.

All in all, a worthwhile time-passer.
