Jake West

Don't you just hate it when a terrible, nonsensical ending gets in the way of an otherwise solid motion picture experience? I know I do. It really doesn't matter how strong, competent, or well-crafted the rest of the movie is -- if the conclusion is weak, unsatisfying, or an unholy combination of the two, then the entire film is a wash. To some, this may sound like an extremely harsh opinion to hold, and in some ways, I suppose it is. Nevertheless, I simply cannot sing the praises of anything that fumbles the proverbial ball during the final reel.

Although other horror fanatics may not necessarily agree with me, I do hold the opinion, as unpopular as it may be, that Jake West's ultra-gory 2005 sci-fi farce "Evil Aliens" is one seriously bad-ass motion picture. All of the elements required for maximum cinematic enjoyment are presented and accounted for: over-the-top characters, an insane amount of violence, and a few incredibly messy anal probes, mixed and blended with the skill of someone who's spent a fair amount of time with the films distributed and/or produced by Troma. Needless to say, I've seen it quite a few times.
