Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

British family man Philip Sayer is abducted by a UFO. Three years later, he returns to his family, claiming to remember nothing of what happened to him in the intervening years. Soon his wife and son begin to notice some odd behavior, like his penchant for eating snake eggs, and the string of horribly mutilated bodies he leaves in his wake. Released a year after ET with the tagline "Not all aliens are friendly", it's only memorable now for its incredibly graphic violence and for Maryam D'Abo's first film role (and her first nude scene).
