Rating: Not Rated Stars: Reiley McClendon, Rick Ravanello, Douglas Tait, Joe Regan, Sven Ruygrok Writers: Blake Clifton & Jabbar Raisani Director: Jabbar Raisani Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: January 30, 2015 It’s hard to tell whether ALIEN OUTPOST is intended as a metaphor for how terrorist cells convert and/or conscript ordinary civilians to attack U.S. military outposts and how bad things can get when an installation is considered low-priority by the brass, or whether the filmmakers were consciously going for some traditional low-budget sci-fi movie concepts.

Back in the day, there were a lot more “woman in jeopardy” medium-budget thrillers and far fewer people questioned their underlying messages (unless the movies were made by someone like Alfred Hitchcock, in which case they were generally considered to be in some other genre).

Lopez plays high school English teacher Claire Peterson, separated from her husband Garrett (John Corbett) for …Read On »
