Starship Invasions

Please choose a format above.

Do you ever stop to wonder what it would be like if Canadian Ed Wood directed Star Wars with a bunch of pages from The Happening randomly inserted into the screenplay? You do??? Please seek help immediately!

Now that those parties are receiving the medical help and/or electroshock therapy they need, the rest of you can enjoy Starship Invasions. The action starts when an obese septuagenarian farmer is abducted so a seductive alien can harvest his bodily fluids, and it barely lets up after that! By “barely lets up” we of course mean “many characters communicate via telepathy because it was way cheaper to shoot without worrying about lip sync.”

When the abducted earthlings start offing themselves in increasingly comical ways, The Intergalactic League of Races grow frustrated with the leader of the aliens, played by Christopher Lee with his head stuck in one of the arm holes of his leotard. Will war break out somewhere in the stars? Is the League of Races underwater pyramid the crappiest set we’ve ever seen?? Will Lemon Drink be eyed??? Find out when Mike, Kevin, and Bill riff Starship Invasions!
