                             "God, the shock to the system must be unbearable..."

 I have this movie on a DVD-double feature disc of 2 George "Buck" Flowers movies(the other one being THE CAPTURE OF BIGFOOT) which I think is very strange because who in their right mind would make a George "Buck" Flowers DVD set? Technically both films are also directed by Bill Rebane so maybe it was supposed to be a Bill Rebane double feature but that's an equally strange selling point. Rebane did make the craptacular GIANT SPIDER INVASION so I guess that's something. While it's hard to believe, this ALPHA movie is even worse than his spiders-on-the-loose epic. Shot in the dreariest part of Wisconsin, the story, which is basically just a rip-off of THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN, concerns a Martian virus that somehow ends up here on Earth and infects 5 people who mostly just sit around in a room for the whole movie and bicker. Sounds thrilling doesn't it? There is one cool gore-filled bit where a guys head grows really big and his brains try to escape out of the top of his head and his one eye falls off but besides that you won't find much of anything interesting here. Flowers plays the role, that he specialized in, as the old guy with the beard and they rip-off the ending to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I can't wait to watch Rebane's Bigfoot movie, I'm sure it will be just spectacular. AKA GIFT FROM A RED PLANET
