THE BORROWER (1991)


 Though technically released in the 90's this is the kind of movie that I imagine would appeal to fans of stupid 80's horror flicks.  It's the story of some cockroach aliens who send one of their prisoners down to Earth instead of prison.  While he's here he keeps having to rip people's heads off to keep his body fresh.  See he's "borrowing" your head, get it?  Even the fucking title is stupid!  It's very similar in style to all those movies that I usually hate where the monster jumps from body to body(stuff like THE HIDDEN and FRIDAY THE 13th Part 9).  While it is full of splattery fx and gross stuff (like our main guy eating rat soup) I found this movie to be overly stupid and not all that exciting of a watch.  It's a shame cuz there's a really cool cast here including Antonio Fargas, Don Gordon and Tom Towles but they all seem pretty much wasted here so look for them in earlier stuff.
 The director of this one is the guy who brought us HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER and it's pretty amazing how different these two films are in tone.  Stick with his masterpiece.
