NOT OF THIS EARTH (1988)
Fresh from her career in underage porn Traci Lords went on to do this remake of Roger Corman's tale of aliens looking for blood. Director Jim Wynorski is know for his low-budget breast-filled epics that used show up on late night cable stations. Seems like the perfect pair and you do get nude scenes of Lords and some other massive boobs on display. On the negative side it's a pretty standard 80's movie with nothing surprising happening outside of the amazing opening sequence featuring monster and gore scenes from other Corman movies like HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP and GALAXY OF TERROR. These have nothing at all to do with this movie but make for a great opening nonetheless. I've never seen the original so I can't compare this to that but I would say check it out for the naked hookers if that's your thing. This was remade again in '95 but that one looks pretty awful. Oh and that poster is full of shit. Traci is from the earth and the alien in this just looks like a regular guy with dark glasses.
Best part of the movie besides the tits:
