Aliens punish one of their own by sending him to earth. The alien is very violent, and when the body he occupies is damaged, he is forced to find another.
Like he did in “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer”, director John McNaughton presents us with a predator’s eye view of the wonderful world of victims, with a tad more dark humor this time around, and the result is a fine little film. We clueless humans are portayed as a strange bunch in the eyes of an alien criminal, who has been sentenced to the worst punishment on his planet: Life as a human! The human form is not entirely compatible with this species’ biology, the annoying result being the head’s tendency to explode. Consequently, our alien protagonist is constantly “head-shopping”, taking on characteristics of each victim he decapitates in order to capacitate himself. Rae Dawn Chong is the only human to catch on, but of course, who’s going to believe a hotheaded female detective? The offbeat characters and wonderfully warped humor set this title apart from most genre offerings …. a cult gem, maybe not for most tastes…
