MV5BMTU5MDUwMDA3OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDY2MjAwMQ@@__V1_SY317_CR4,0,214,317_AL_Review (Spoils): A small average family that live out in the country get involved in a falling star that land’s in the fields. The family has their normal older sister and younger brother fights which builds the character level up. The family battles these black fuzzy, needle shooting big mouthed aliens with the help of another group of aliens bounty hunters that having glowing heads but are shape changers.

This movie does lack on the gore but there are some nasty bloody bites and needle stabs. The rolling little devils are entertaining enough but with no real background story why they kill. The acting by no means great but it is a low budget horror film so I was not expecting a whole lot.

Rating: This is basically Gremlins minus Phoebe Cates sure we have Nadine Van der Velde but its just not the same. The movie is silly and does have some fun parts but to keep on the series with sequels is just beyond. The film might have been better if they took out all the cheesy bounty hunter alien part.
